Announcing Our New Series


Introducing our new joint writers' journal--MISSION: SUCCESS!

Two heads are better than one, but a trio is 30% more!

As co-bloggers we're each following our own path to publication and authorly success.  Along the way, we're info-magnets gathering a plethora of news, information, techniques, experiences and research sites we'd like to share with other writers and authors.  Our mission plan is to post once a week on things we've learned, sites we've visited, workshops we've attended, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, as we journey from aspiring writers to published authors.

Join us on Monday for the kickoff.  We also hope sometime next week we'll have some REALLY BIG NEWS!  Really! Big! News!  We're so excited! 

Here are some of the topics we'll discuss. Just like a personal journal, our entries could be a couple of sentences or a 1,500 word dissertation. Topics may include (in no particular order):

Action!
Actions we've taken as writers. Where are we? What are we doing? What's in the works? Are we guest blogging? Participating in other authors booksignings, interviews or book launch events? Of course we may not be able to disclose career moves in detail (we'll save our thunder for big announcements!) but it's always fun to compare notes with each other and other writers.

Discoveries
New authors, cool web sites, great resources, great workshops, great online sites!

The Squeeze
Writers are sponges when it comes to soaking up writing tips and tricks. Here's where we squeeze out our sponges for the week. What's deep POV? What's theme? What's one great idea we heard in the last week? To be a writer is to be enrolled in one heckuva continuing education program. We'll share things we've learned.

Pssst!
The latest buzz. Submission calls. New publishers. Industry changes. Inspirational sayings or quotes for writers. And our take on them.

Bookshelf
Books we're reading and mini-reviews. Writers must read voraciously. Sometimes we find gems in the literary universe or sometimes certain elements of a book really speak to us (and our muses). Do we know about book giveaways? A big debut? We'll dish on those.

Happenings
Events, conferences, cons as well as Facebook, Twitter and blog events.

Ping Pong
We'll comment back to our co-bloggers on things they've posted on their journals.

Sound good?  We hope so.  And just as a bonus, we'll offer some random giveaways and free fun stuff from time to time.

Hope to see you here.
