As you’re no doubt aware, my blogging has reduced itself considerably these past few months as I’ve focused more on my professional writing.
Hopefully, you’re doing well and have managed to get through a rather chaotic summer. It’s been interesting, to say the least. I have family in both Houston and Florida, so lately, I’ve also added watching weather news to working on writing and teaching.
I wanted to let you know I’ve developed a new newsletter through Mail Chimp. It will include my publishing news, and information on where I’m teaching, but even more fun will be the posts on developing a writing style, tips on format, and ideas for organization coming from my teaching and writing.
For example, one of the first posts will be on how to use list making (sort of like a grocery list) to help organize ideas. Using this method is a lot more fun that staring at a blank outline! I developed the process when I was teaching college classes and students loved it.
If you’d like to be included in the newsletter mailing list, you can send me your email through Message on Facebook or from the Contact Me page here on the website. That’s the quickest way, but I’ll also include a link here on my website (eventually–right now I’m in the building newsletter process).
I won’t add you to the newsletter mailing list unless you send me your email address. Even with the newsletter, I won’t be deluging you with email. I plan on sending out two or three a month.
I’ll still occasionally work out essay ideas here on the blog, but that will come after this push to get other things organized.
I hope you’ll enjoy this new venture with me! And have a happy fall.
