Happy Saturday, everyone!
There is no weekend in the land of retail, so I had to work today, but at last I’m at home and winding down. So as I sit here sipping my Merlot and crank up the Coldplay, I am of course thinking of new content for the blog. The main purpose of this blog was initially just to get myself writing again, to give myself a deadline so to speak, a place where I will be forced to consistently share content and therefore make sure I just keep writing just keep writing JUST KEEP WRITING. It was only a delightful side effect when people started actually reading and following my posts here. So I thought it might be nice if I set out a weekly schedule for the blog with consistent content for you to enjoy! Here’s what I came up with…
Mondays: Book Club Monday
I recently started a book club with some of the girls at work, and I thought it might be cool to open it up to my followers here on the blog as well. I will be posting more details about participation next Monday. In August we will be reading The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. So if you’d like to join us, you can get your copy from Amazon or your local bookseller. Then check back on Monday about how to participate starting in August!
Thursdays: Review Thursday
Every Thursday I will post a review of what I read that week. Occasionally, books will be supplanted by journals or blogs, such as in my post earlier this week about Analog.
Fridays: Fiction Friday
On Friday I will share a piece of my own fiction. I am currently working on a new short story project, so that will likely be what I use to start us off on next Friday.
Sundays: Sunday Writer’s Chat
On Sundays I thought it might be fun to host a Writer’s Chat on a chosen topic related to the craft of writing. We can either set up a chat room, or reply through comments. If there is an interest in this, please feel free to suggest topics for the chat! I’m thinking every Sunday from 9-10pm EST.
Phew, that’s a lot to do every week. Let’s see how it goes in the weeks to come, and thank you all for reading the blog!
