News You Can Use...
I hope you guys have been enjoying a wonderful week, wherever you reside away from the Blogosphere.
It's been a week with many ups and downs and turns for me. But, as my mom often says, "It is what it is." :-)
Okay, so let's get started with the good stuff. Here's the 4-1-1 for this weekend.
1. Coffeehouse for Writers starts its early registration today for September classes. If you'd like to learn how to quit your day job, or blog for bucks, or make your characters come to life, or perhaps become more social media savvy, you should definitely sign up for one of the current offerings. "There's no time like the present." Online classes range from two days to about four weeks. What makes them popular is that they're affordable and convenient. Take them from your place at your pace! The first six people to register will receive a popular "how to" writing book filled with tips on querying, marketing and social media, and tried and true methods of making more money. You'll love what's brewing at the Coffeehouse!
To register today, go to Coffeehouseforwriters.com
2. Congrats to my blogging buddy, Karen Lange over at Write Now for reaching 300 followers. This post just misses her recent give-away in celebration of this noteworthy achievement, but rest assured, she'll be having another one relatively soon. :-) Stop by and say hi!
3. Jen is in! Let me use my know-how to increase your net worth. Just in case you haven't spotted it yet, I now offer a new service as reflected in the right-hand margin of this Blog. Here's a little background. Over the years, I've gotten numerous emails from friends, fans, aspiring writers, and followers seeking ways to earn money for their creative efforts. Sometimes assistance is sought to find new markets. Other times it may be questions regarding self-publishing, or time management tips, or copyrights. So, for those serious about their freelancing journey, I now offer one-on-one sessions by phone or Email.
Whatever it is that may have caused a temporary career "detour", I can put you on the path to success! My consultations and creative coaching sessions were designed with you in mind. With more than a decade of experience, and a wide range of publishing successes, I've been where you are. Choose a 1/2 hour session, an hour, or whatever fits your needs and your budget. Let's connect and come up with ways to take your career to the next level today.
Which leaves me with this parting question. Where are you with the "resolutions" you established for your writing this year? Are you where you should be?
