I’ve had my work cut out for me the past six months or so. The good news is I’ll have my own website by the end of March. As soon as the site goes live, all useful material from this blog and a few of my other blogs will be moved to the new site. All new material will posted to the new site as well. I’m extremely excited about this announcement. I’ll be able to post at least once per week, but I truly hope to post three times per week. The new site will focus on detailed descriptions of every public writing site I’ve tried, plus reviews of all sites I use to learn more about my craft, including tips and tricks to make the most of every site.
Another focus of the site will be writing prompts for fiction, non-fiction, poetry and editorials with a place for contests so viewers can vote on the best material for each prompt. By 2011, I hope to be able to offer monetary prizes, but publicity will be the main prize for now.
I hope my readers will forgive my long absence and visit the new site when it goes live. Over the past six months, I’ve dealt with quite a few personal and professional ordeals. I’ve come a long way towards getting back on track professionally and personally. Surprisingly enough, I’ve had my worst bout of rejections since I started writing. This is mainly due to branching out and taking risks. Overall, the risks have paid off. I’ve learned more about writing for the web, when to take advantage of an opportunity and how to keep trying no matter what. I thank everyone for their interest in my blog and hope you’ll enjoy the forthcoming site, full of useful information and fun. Not to mention, a section for all my wonderful, opinionated editorials about any and everything that crosses my mind 🙂
