Worse than the doing, is the planning

I've been told that there are readers out there who are waiting with a worm on their tongue (baited breath - thank you Robin Williams) for this very informative blog "workshop" to begin.

There are some very good reasons to be excited about the weeks to come.

The only fly in the ointment is that, while the excitement will be had by all, the planning is done by one. Meaning I be slooooow.

BUT, here's a sneak peek at some of the names (and brains) you will be learning from in the weeks to come:

Marcia Lee-Laycock - author, speaker and heck of a nice lady.

Donna Dawson - author, speaker, army brat, and more fun than you can shake a stick at (although why you would shake a stick at her is unclear)

N.J. Lindquist - author, speaker, mentor, Co-founder of The Word Guild, and spiritual "Mom" to many.

Andy Meisenheimer - Editor extraordinaire, lover of art, and a heck of a smart guy.


Oh, yeah, there's more to come. I'm working on even more great authors, editors, and agents to sign on as a guest blogger for this amazing (and FREE) series on Fiction Matters.

I know it's hard to wait, but I promise you, I'm working hard to ensure that this line up is stellar, fantastic, and, above all, expert!

Now is a good time to subscribe to this blog, that way you won't miss a single post (delivered straight to your in-box).

If you know of someone who could benefit from the upcoming workshop, then by all means send them over and get them signed up!

I bid you good writing

Okay, I've included this in my Write! Canada post. No pressure, Bonnie!

But I really am interested in hearing all the great direction you've promised!

Wonderful, Eileen.

I've visited your blogs. Good stuff there! I enjoyed reading them.

The line up for guest bloggers is coming together nicely. I'm very excited about the next couple of weeks.
