CK Wylde1,228A Circle Share Of Crazy People - Also Known As WritersI've not really shared circles before but every time +Brian Buckley does it I end up with fantastic new people in my feed.  So I thought I would share my writer's circle with you all. In it you will find  a bunch of G+ Writers and people who have to do with writers (publishers for instance).  WarningI tried this a little earlier and had a couple of people say they couldn't see the people in the circle. If you can't please let me know, I'm trying to figure out why that might be happening. Also, if you happen to know why that happens I am all ears.If you want to be included in this circle, also plese let me know.  #writers   #circleshare   #circles  2013-11-18 20:32:284401519CC G+

Simona AN23,183+Todaysmemory THANK YOU CircleSince last year, I started to post memories of the day - celebrations, great people in painting, sculpture, music, dance, literature, film, science, etc. A tribute to the people who have left a mark in history, an international celebration, all with a short summary. I named these posts Today's Memory. When I saw that my memories captured attention, I create a page, +Todaysmemory (with big help from my friend +Angela Ghinea) and I discovered a lot of people with the same tastes and posts.Here's a BIG THANK YOU Circle with the best friends and Sources of +Todaysmemory.  A group of extremely interesting people, if you add them you won't regret!If you like the memories, I invite you to send, with hashtag #todaysmemory  and curator me, +Simona AN everything you think deserves your tribute!

Nina Pelletier11,765I have been requested to share my writers circle many times over the last year, but I never felt right doing it. After 2 emails I received yesterday asking so kindly that I share it yet again, I figured it's time to do so.I have over 500 writers in my writers circle because, hey, that's why I'm here right? But sadly only 500 of them can be shared at once. So you won't get all of the wonderful writerly people I have met on this lovely world we call Google+, but here are 500 of them.  Enjoy and share.If I've missed any writers, please feel free to add them in the comments below.Thank you to this awesome community of literary quirkiness and genius. ♥  #writershelpingwriters   #writers  2012-09-12 15:13:0750121411CC G+
Don Sturgill57This Writer's Circle probably needs to be edited, but it's a start. Do you have a list of favorite writers on Google+ to share? Please do.2012-08-27 20:46:3870000CC G+
Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 2 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #2 of the 2. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #sharedcircles +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:24:39330211318CC G+
Rob Gordon22,157*Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business OwnersUPDATED SHARED CIRCLE: Part 1 of 2: A through L (by last name).Link to Part (M-Z):         http://goo.gl/0Fcg1Link to Supplemental 1: http://goo.gl/AXXrWLink to Supplemental 2: http://goo.gl/TZKKeLike to Supplemental 3: http://goo.gl/3x6hINOTE:  This circle is no longer maintained in its present form but is still a good place to start if you are looking for entrepreneurs to follow and connect with here.  It has mostly been replace with a Google+ community of the same name that you can find at http://goo.gl/ejG9P**********************This is the most recent update to the popular "entrepreneurs" circle that posted a few months ago. As you can see, it has gotten bigger than 500 people so I have had to split it alphabetically into two parts. These two circles includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy.This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own business or venture. There are more than 800 people here, but this has been reviewed extensively since it was last published -lots of fantastic new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of really awesome business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset.This is a really diverse group and includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures and are wildly successful, others are just getting started and haven't made it yet. As can be expected, it is a little tech heavy, but represents most industries and many different types of business. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in small business issues and always seem welcome to help entrepreneurial efforts. The people in these circles post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you check this out.I do want to add the disclaimer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and this is just a tiny fraction of them - the ones I have curated. It seems that about two seconds after I publish this I always remember someone I should have included so just me know if you think you should be here. I republish this periodically and generally add everyone who comments on the post.As with all circles of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either update your existing circle, pick and choose the ones you like or use these as a trial circles - whatever works for you. I'm not even sure Google will let you add all this many names at once so you may have to come back if you want to add all of them. The technology for this is not perfect, but I am trying to do my part to help build a highly interconnected community of entrepreneurs here on Google+.I hope you find the people in this circle interesting.RobReshares welcome and appreciatedIMPORTANT: You don't want to follow people based on where their last name fits in the alphabit do you? Make sure you also take a look at the second part of this list:LINK TO PART II (M-Z): http://goo.gl/0Fcg1#smallbusiness2012-04-18 18:49:234401197169CC G+

Gabriel Fitzpatrick3,746Writers CircleA couple people have asked me to share a circle of writers because there apparently aren't enough of those. This is the first full one, and contains most of the writers whose posts and content I've found interesting and engaging (or at very least who haven't been so insufferable as to warrant an uncircling ^.^) If you aren't here, you may very well be in the second one. Don't jump to any conclusions :)2012-03-26 22:19:06499983CC G+
Meilani MacDonald1,201If the Circle Fits, Share It! - Entrepreneurs, Freelancers and Small BusinessWow, where to begin? This is exactly the circle I was looking for: entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business. I'll begin with a thanks to +Rahul Roy, whose always helpful posts of resources for new and wanting to be more active plussers pointed the way to www.CircleCount.com. That site turned out to be a great resource for finding shared circles defined by interest. There, I found +Rob Gordon's awesome entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business circle. I know it's a quality circle, as I noticed many of the folks in it are already in my circles, and I generally circle people who make posts I find to be useful, educational and enlightening. I hope you will find them as useful and enlightening as I have! #smallbusiness #freelance #professional #entrepreneur2012-03-24 00:26:5250111715CC G+
Rob Gordon18,830Entrepreneurs, Self Employed & Small Business.

This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own small business or venture.

The professionals in this circle post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you at least take a look. As with any circle of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either pick and choose the ones you like or use it as a trial circle - whatever method works for you. I also recently learned that you can save circles to your Google contacts so you can save this information there even if you don't want to use this toward your 5000 limit. I hope you find the people in this circle interesting. I certainly do. RobReshares welcome and appreciated#sharedcircles#smallbusiness #entrepreneurs #startup2012-03-13 20:32:12500663852CC G+

I had planned to watch The Man Who Knew Too Much tonight, but after last night's viewing of Charade, I couldn't resist another evening with Cary Grant. So I turned, instead, to a different classic, To Catch a Thief...

Yesterday, I took one of those ubiquitous social media quizzes (they're so hard to resist!). This one asked the question, "What career were you meant for?" When (big surprise) I got "writer" as my answer and posted it, this was one of the comments a reader who is into her second journey with my fantasy novel The MoonQuest; it's her prep before she launches into the second (The StarQuest) and third (The SunQuest) installments of my Q'ntana Trilogy books.

I don't know if this is making the rounds on Google+ yet, but if it isn't, it will probably be one of these days. It asks you to list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Well, I was absolutely delighted to wake up this morning and find me and my memoir, Acts of Surrender: A Writer's Memoir, on one of those lists! Thanks across the miles (and ocean) to Paola Rizzato in the U.K.!!

Given that J.K. Rowling is meant to write my life story (see my previous post), it stands to reason that I'm engaged in my right pursuit! Apparently, I'm meant to be a writer! (Big surprise!!)

"You have an unmatched skill for creating vast worlds both through facts and pure imagination. Your mind is full of creativity, artistry, and expression. You heart gracefully guides your hands as you work to bring what is truly your spirit to life. You were truly meant to guide the world with your words."

What career were you meant for? http://bitecharge.com/play/career/h4

Apart from a bit too much sun and an unfortunate lunch experience (see the previous post on my profile for details), today's outing to Santa Fe was not only pleasant but productive: We shot a bunch of great potential covers for my upcoming book: Birthing Your Book...Even If You Don't Know What It's About. I guess I'd better get cracking and birth the  %!$@&* book!! (Given the title, I'm aiming for a release by my birthday, which is in six weeks.)

I hardly ever use social media to complain and I'm not a whole lot crankier today than usual, but my lunch experience at Santa Fe's Second Street Brewery at the Railyard was so unsatisfactory that I won't ever be returning. Not only did I have to send my fish back because it wasn't cooked, but the service (if you can call it that) was surly and and not up to anything you might describe as standard. Major FAIL.

"Write what you know," the writing guides insist. But what does that really mean? That you can't write about lawyers if you've never been one? I say it's about writing from the place in your heart where you already know all you need to know.

Scientists confirm that reading fiction stimulates the brain and can even change how we act in life. So what are you waiting for? Pick up a novel! 

Any well-written novel will do...but a novel about a land where storytelling is threatened would be particularly appropriate. Where would you find such a thing? It just so happens I've written one(!): The MoonQuest, set in "a land where fear rules and storytelling spells death." It's the first book installment in my Q'ntana Trilogy of fantasy novels.

"Reading...it has long been averred, enlarges and improves us as human beings. Brain science shows this claim is truer than we imagined."

From the moment J.A. Jance discovered the Wizard of Oz books in second grade, she wanted to be a writer. Unfortunately, the journey was neither easy nor direct. Discouraged because of her gender and ridiculed by an alcoholic first husband, Jance would be 38 before she began writing. Today, 50+ books later, Jance is a NY Times bestseller and one of America's top mystery writers. I had the privilege of chatting with her a year ago, a conversation that is just as engaging and relevant today as it was back then – whether you're a writer, a reader or both.

When I conceived the idea for "Birthing Your Book...Even If You Don't Know What It's About," I expected this, my fifth book for writers, to be a cakewalk. After all, I had been teaching and writing this stuff for more than two decades. Instead, as I get deeper into this new iteration of my material, the book is taking on the intensity of a REbirthing for me...just in time for my birthday in seven weeks! Maybe I should plan for a birthday day release. For now, I'm back at it...in my caffeinated birthing tank!

"As I push forward on book promotion, a quick shoutout to Mark David Gerson, whose dedication to the craft truly was one of the biggest inspirations for my first novel. I've said it before and I'll say it again, fellow writers: seek him out."

If you haven't read Will's novel, This Album Full of Angles, today's a great day to check it out...especially if you do your reading on a Kindle device/app...cuz it's FREE at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FCZCB2I. (But don't wait: I don't know how long this promotion lasts.)

As we read the headlines coming out of the Middle East and the U.S. Midwest, as we feel overwhelmed by the madness that seems to engulf the world these days, these four words remind us that there is ever only one solution: love.

"Love matters...only love" comes from from The SunQuest, the second book in my Q'ntana fantasy trilogy, where, there too, the world seems to have been overtaken by mindless chaos and heartless cruelty and where, in the end, love can be the only solution.

My newest book has been strangely slow-going, but I'm back at it this afternoon, accompanied by an Caffe Americano. What's the book? Ironically, it's titled "Birthing Your Book"! The full title is "Birthing Your Book...Even If You Don't Know What It's About" and because I sort of know what it's about, I'm still aiming for a release before my birthday.

This is a sign you would never see in Q'ntana, the mythical land that is the setting for The MoonQuest (The Q'ntana Trilogy, Book I). It's a land where storytelling is forbidden and storytellers have been put to death..."a land where 'once upon a time' is forbidden phrase and fact the only legal tender."

The Wizard of Oz may have had its glitzy Hollywood premiere on Aug. 15, 1939, but its world premier took place two days earlier – 75 years ago today – at the Strand Theater in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, a test pre-release to see how the big-budget film would play in America's heartland. Happy Birthday, Yellow Brick Road!
