Friday Five: Dream Weaver...Contest Edition!!!!

This week's Friday Five is all about dreams.  I've always had a somewhat vivid imagination.  Hell, I'll just say it.  I was the kid in class who was always daydreaming and generally off in La-La Land when I should have been paying attention to the teacher.  (I'm pretty sure that's true of most writers)

Five Dreams of Yours Truly
  1. To see the world...preferably Ireland, Greece, Egypt, Australia, and Japan (everywhere else too if there's time)
  2. To make enough money on my writing so that I won't need a day job.  Now, I'm not saying I need to be Stephen King/James Patterson/Stephenie Meyer rich.  That's probably being a little greedy...but you get the point ;)
  3. See a movie/television show being filmed
  4. Snorkel the Great Barrier Reef
  5. Dive the wreckage of the Edmund Fitzgerald
Okay...enough about me.  Now, for what you've all been hankering for. 


Now, that I've told you all about my dreams, I'd like to hear from you!! For each thing you do on the following list, your name will be put into jar that many # of times. Here we go:

+1 comment with the your dream(s) They can be goals or just those weird ones you have at night. Your pick :)

+1 if you follow me (+1 more if you are currently a minion)

+1 if you follow me on Twitter (+1 more if you already cyber stalk me)

+2 if you tweet about this contest to your friends

+3 if you blog about this contest, giving your Top Five dreams/goals (please paste your address in the comment so I can read it!)

+1 if you do the math for me (yeah, I'm lazy)

And that chances you have to win.

The Prize!!!

One lucky winner will receive the entire (all three books) WAKE trilogy by Lisa McMann. (thus the dream theme)  Yay! I know you are all excited beyond belief about this.

Ok, friends. Contest starts now, and ends next Thursday, October 14, 2010. (Ahem...FYI: this contest is open to all my international minions) The winner will be announced on next week's FRIDAY FIVE. Good luck and may the best (er...randomly chosen) blogger win!

***No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. See Official Rules for details. hehehe! I always wanted to say that!!!


  1. hey - i love this list - two Aussie things on there - yay! I want to travel too - I'd love to go to Crete and Scotland.

    awesome contest - all three books! i've already read them so dont include me - let someone else win :)


  2. Wow, what a great prize! I'm being shallow and judging them by their covers, but methinks they'll be awesome...

    My BIG dream is to write books that make people happy. I don't want all that literary criticism crap. I just want to make people laugh, and know my work is loved. So:

    +1 for my dream *sigh*
    +2 for following old-school
    +2 for twitter-stalking old-school
    +2 for twittering (@CaitlinEDarrell)
    +1 for doing the math ;)
    8 points :D

    Thanks for the awesomeness!

  3. Fun!

    Let's see...dreams. Well, other than world peace, and health & happiness for my family and friends, I guess I'll dream that my agent sells my book.

    I just followed your blog (I thought I already had, but it turns out you were just in my Google reader), and I follow you on Twitter. :)

  4. I have been pretty lucky in life. We have made all of our dreams come true. Well almost all of them.

    We would like to own a much larger boat and have the time to sail around the world. I want to see exotic places with my husband and make new memories. Silly, maybe. But I love seeing the world through his eyes, because he looks at life so differently than I do.

    Okay, I will mention you on my blog. +1
    I will tweet this today +1
    Already follow...okay I am done with the math now.

    At least this time I freaking remembered to enter! Ishould get extra entries just for that. Oh, and being such a faithfull reader and poster.

    Right? RIGHT?

  5. I follow.
    I tweet.
    I'll Rt the contest.
    I'll even share my dreams. I want my kids to be happy and successful on their terms. I want to see a book with my name on it in the stacks at stores and libraries. I want to see cancer cured in my life time.

    But math? Ah, gee, it's Friday and WHY I WRITE instead of do ... you know, accounting or something.

  6. COOL Contest and great books! I haven't read them, so, YES PLEASE!

    My big dream is to become successful enough at writing that I can do good things for people ala JK Rowling and what she does for MS and literacy, povery, etc. Well, I mean, I don't even begin to fathom success like hers...just some minimal success to pay it forward!

    All right, I suck at math, and even failed Geometry in HS, but here it goes!

    +1 for my dream
    +2 for already being a follower
    +2 for already twitter stalking
    +2 for tweeting Wanna chance to win Wake, Fade, and Gone? Then check out @lastword's fab dream contest

    +1 I'm a true dreamer since I started to... talk? Yeah that long. When i was little my dreams were all about saving people from getting hit by a car, being an actress, famous writer and stuff. Nowadays I just dream about having a cool little house, a nice job and a couple of good friends.
