“I don’t think there’s a punch-line scheduled, is there?”
“Always look on the bright side of life.”

Dancing lemur + Monty Python quotes= Happy Saturday Morning.
Anyway, that’s the equation my caffeine-addled,editing-befuddled brain came up with.
We’ve had a brilliant year, so far- some wonderful insights and information from my fellow ladies-of-the-word, including guest Lara Shiffbauer’s post on self-publishing.
Our very own Heather Reid will be taking a short leave-of-absence while she and her Scottish husband prepare to move stateside and Heather prepares for the release of her debut novel, Pretty Dark Nothing, in April. We would like to extend a huge congratulations and send her our best wishes as she undertakes what I’m sure will be a fantasic adventure.
I am delighted to announce that D.D. Falvo and Vaughn Roycroft have accepted our invitation to stand in for Heather. Shoes of lead couldn’t keep D.D.’s feet on the ground as a child and as an adult, D.D. is known for her passion to connect(and often mentor, as in my case) with other writers. Vaughn Roycroft, a Writer Unboxed contributor and world-builder extraordinaire wrote this post for us last year. D.D. and Vaughn, thank you and we look forward to your posts.
We also welcome these guest contributors over the coming year:
January 29th- Amy Sipard Freeman
March 29th- Sevigne, a strong, and thoughtful presence over at the Writer Unboxed community page on Facebook
April 29th- Connie Cockrell
May 30th and September 30th- Lara Shiffbauer will presents parts 2&3 of her Self-Publishing series.
While we plan for workshops and online critiques for the coming year, we extend an open invitation to bloggers. We look for pieces that motivate, inspire, and inform writers. Posts can be anywhere between 300 and 1500 words long and should include an author biography and high-resolution picture. If you’re interested, please leave a message in the comments section or email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Available Dates for 2013:
Have a swell Saturday and here’s a cheeky Monty Python clip for your viewing pleasure:
