Holy Cats! I Won?

We all know someone who seems to win stuff all the time, right? 768x506xSplitShire-0450-768x506.jpg.pagespeed.ic.hAA5KLr8ds

I am not one of those people.

Maybe this has changed now. Maybe not, but in the meantime I am honored to be among these other writers in this contest:

16 Posts That’ll Make You Excited to Be a Writer in 2016

That’s me…the 10th one down!

I have spent the first days of 2016 cleaning out my email inbox (5K plus. Oy.) and reading the other contest winners and I think you would like them, too.

I enjoyed them all differently and learned something from each. Talented people who linked to other talented people. Delicious.

Happy reading! (And here is your chance to learn how to Moonwalk)

My Very First Guest Post!

It’s been forever since I posted anything here, but that’s not because I haven’t been busy.

Au contraire…I enrolled in Jon Morrow’s Guest Blogging course and in my spare time have been writing and re-writing…and re-writing some more.

Liz, Cate and Robert are the editors who have encouraged, corrected, suggested, directed and helped me to say what I mean, and today it all came together.

(I jokingly said once that I was working on version 27 and the final tally is probably not far from that. They get a medal for hanging in there with me).

So today I am pleased to introduce you to Peter Clemens and The Change Blog and my first guest post. If you haven’t found Peter’s blog yet, I can help with that. He publishes some great pieces and I am honored to now be among them.

Without further ado, here is your link. Enjoy!

And now I am going to make a cup of tea, watch the wind blow the rest of the leaves off the trees, and think about my next post.

Cheers!
