Valentine's Day Love My Followers Giveaway!

So I'm taking part in the Follower Love Giveaway Hop (Feb 8-13), which will be fun...watch out for that...


I'm hosting another Love My Followers giveaway!
Yes, I really want to show my appreciation to all my followers, so I made you guys (well, one of you) a fleece-lap-blanket.
I absolutely LOVE these - pretty much because there's not a lot that can make me feel crafty - and they're so soft and warm, but not hot or anything.
Here's what you can win:It's a yard-long, with red & white hearts on a pink fleece background on one side, and a solid soft white on the other side.

Sound fun?
The contest will end FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4th - so that I can mail out the blanket in time for Valentine's Day :)

Entries -
- This contest is to show appreciation to all my followers, so it is a followers-contest

Any writers in the house?

Before this year, I hadn't considered using writing books. I was pretty much under the impression, If you're a natural writer, everything should fall into place on its own, right?
But I'm starting to reevaluate that mindset. I think college has made me a wee bit rusty around the edges, so I'd like to know, from the prospective authors out there -

Do you use writers' manuals or writing guide books? Have you found them particularly helpful?
And are there any that you might recommend?
