Please join me Monday, September 7th in launching the redesigned Joy in the Journey. This blog is about enjoying whatever stage of the journey you are in. In my case it's a writing journey, but I hope anyone will find something here they like. I’ve changed the schedule, enlisted the help of some great writing friends, and am hosting my first contest—with prizes—so please join in the fun.

Monday is Roll up Your Sleeves Day, and I'm pleased to have guest host Lisa Lickel here for the next three Mondays. She will share from her workshop at Wisconsin Writers Connect Day called The Nuts and Bolts of Submission. Please stop by Monday and welcome Lisa to Joy in the Journey.

Stop in every day next week to see what's happening. Don't forget to play the game which begins on Saturday, September 12.

If you are a writer and would like to share your writing journey or some of the nuggets of wisdom you've picked up along the way, please submit to become a guest blogger. Writers at any level will be considered, as long as you are working toward writing as a career and not just a hobby. Joy in the Journey has a Christian world view. While your writing doesn't need to, I reserve the right to reject anything readers may deem inappropriate.

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 inspiring the muse.

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 for us on Wednesday. I would love to see more 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 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.

Okay, that's it. If you're a reader, aspiring writer, published novelist, or anywhere in between, there is something here for you. If you have questions you'd like addressed or want to know more about me, writing in general, or pet adoption, just ask. If I don't know the answer, I'll find someone who does, or I'll just make something up.

See you on Monday.
