Fare Thee Well, CoCo & Upcoming Blogfest

I fell asleep Friday night around 10:00 but woke up to the final farewell from Conan O'Brien on the Tonight Show.  I believe my exact question was, "Is that Heidi Klum singing Free Bird with Will Ferrell?"  (Answer: no.  It was Will Ferrell's pregnant wife.  All was forgiven when Will brought out the cowbell.)

This all got me thinking about farewells, classy (like Conan...who I would follow to Lifetime if that was his next network) and otherwise.

Now...we've had a perfectly passionate Kissing Day Blogfest recently hosted by Sherrinda at A Writer Wannabe.  Then, an awesomely awkward No-Kiss Blogfest hosted by Frankie over at Frankie Writes.

You know what comes next.

I think it's time for the break-up.  The "so-long, sweetie".

On February 15th (yes, I realize that's the day after Valentine's Day), post your fond (and otherwise) farewells from your WIP.  Or write something new.  Or, if you're not a writer, post your favorite break-up clip from a movie.

I'll get a Mr. Linky set up, then just sign up here and post about it over at your blog!

To get you in the  mood, here's a little tribute to my all-time favorite break-up movie, Say Anything:

  8. Elana, of course you can! My one rule with blogfests is that there shouldn't be a lot of rules.
