You can submit your posts by using this form (although please note that the Blog Carnival site now requires users to login before submitting posts, so if you don't want to use the form, you can also email me directly - just be sure to put "CARNIVAL SUBMISSION" in the subject line and get your email to me by the deadline).
If you need more information about the carnival, you can check out its page on the Blog Carnival site, this page at Notebook Stories, or the FAQ. I also encourage you to visit the December Carnival of Pen, Pencil, and Paper at Life Imitates Doodles.
I have noticed that recent editions of the Carnival have been a bit quiet, so let's make the first Carnival of 2014 amazing by submitting lots of great posts to it! I'm looking forward to receiving your entries.
