Almost two weeks have passed since the blog got a pulse and its heart began to beat a strong, steady rhythm across the land. It’s been a trip. There were bumps along the way and scrapes that needed to be blown and kissed, but I made it through the stumbles none the worse for wear.
During the process of sharing, I realized that three themes presented themselves the most: how-to tips, life’s difficulties that create obstacles for the writer, and inspirational quotes that help keep the faith when dawn is at its darkest. So I’ve decided to discuss these themes on three different days of the week.
- Tuesday Tips & How-to’s: Every Tuesday, I’ll bring helpful suggestions from various writing resources to these pages for lively banter. The first series we’ll tackle is the Write Great Fiction Series, which includes Plot & Structure, and Revision & Self-Editing by best-selling novelist James Scott Bell, Dialogue by author and instructor Gloria Kempton, Characters, Emotion & Viewpoint by award-winning novelist Nancy Kress, and Description & Setting by author and instructor Ron Rozelle. Sounds exciting and chock-full of tasty knowledge nuggets!
- Thursday’s Thoughts: Join me on Thursdays for brief reflections on life as a full-time Alzheimer’s Caregiver and budding writer, trying to find a balance that serves the demands of both professions.
- Sunday Inspirations: What better day to laze around contemplating the intricacies of writing and all the joy and pleasure it brings? Enjoy your midday dinner and then plop in here for quotes by and for writers, books that I find inspirational, and other delights that will feed your muse when she starts to pale.
So with those thoughts, I’ll close for today. I think it will be a nice schedule, don’t you? See you Sunday!
