Figuring it out....

Thank you to all my visitors on yesterday's blog post. You gave me a lot to think about, networking wise. While I LOVE my writer friends, continuing to blog about mostly writing topics isn't the direction I want to take.

In my post I said I would be blogging on M-W-F. Well, guess what - that's already changed. Why? Because I found a great place to network via Google+. It's called Saturday Scenes and will be connected via hashtags (those cute little #saywhateveryouwant identifier things that Twitter created).

I've decided to write flash fiction for Saturdays, some will be short, some will be longer. I will take reader input for prompts as well as photo suggestions. Some weeks I may do a Five Sentence Fiction for the post, some may be a Visual Dare and some may use my old Write4Ten philosophy (take a word, setting, phrase and write for ten minutes).

I have also committed to doing the Celebrate Small Things posts on Fridays...this is similar to my old Five Friday Facts that kind of went by the wayside. Mostly personal stuff with a little writing tossed in for good measure.

So, I now have Friday and Saturday locked in and the first Wednesday of every month is for the Insecure Writers Group. The second Wednesday was for Indelibles but I haven't done that in months. Time to put it on the calendar again!

So, how about Mon, Fri, Sat? That's not to say I won't pop a post in when something interesting comes up or pops into my mind but will be the start of a schedule. I think I have the start of a plan...hope you will check in often to see what's up!

Oh, and remember, I'm open for submissions for flash fiction prompts as well as any other ideas about blog posts - what you'd like to learn about me, anything you'd like to learn about the characters in my Klondike Mystery books, etc.

  3. That's the wonderful thing about this writing life, we get to do what we want, when we want.

    1. Joy, the only issue is wanting to write ALL the time or NONE of the time. Balance...got to work on my balance! Thanks for stopping in!

I'm tired of talking to myself. Drop a note, please?
