Beginning Labor Day September 7th I am revamping Joy in the Journey. As you know the blog chronicles my journey from obscure writer to top of the New York Times Bestseller Lists. It goes without saying it’s a work in progress. I would like to invite writers from every stage in the writing process to guest host or post something to the blog. The only requirement is that you must be published or actively pursuing writing as a career, and it’s not just a hobby to occupy your lunch breaks.
Note: Joy in the Journey expresses a Christian world view. While your writing doesn’t have to, I reserve the right to reject anything I deem unacceptable to my readers. Drop me a line if you would like to submit or become a guest host.
My schedule beginning September 7th is as follows:
Monday——Roll up your sleeves Day—Instructional and/or motivational posts on everything from how to create characters to handling writers’ block.
Wednesday——Encouraging words—We all need a little encouragement from time to time. Encourager extraordinaire Sharlene MacLaren, author of the Daughters of Jacob Kane series, has generously written something I’ll post that first Wednesday. Thanks, Shar. I would love to get some encouraging, inspiring words from the rest of you. Nothing is too short or too long.
Tricks & Treats Thursday——Thursday is the day to get those creative juices pumping. From writing prompts to dyed in the wool tricks to get moving and keep those keyboard keys humming.
Friday Fun Days——interviews, book reviews, contests. If you would like your book featured, let me know. We can interview your heroine, discuss your writing journey, or whatever else you think readers might like to know about you.
Saturday Smorgasbord——The name says it all. Who knows what might happen on Saturdays. The first Saturday in September we will be on the search for an albino squirrel courtesy of Vicki Moss. I would love to get other bloggers involved in the search. Vicki and I plan to blitz the web with announcements and sightings. Please join in the fun.
