I can’t believe it, but this is my first post for the year 2016. Which, in a sense means that this is really the first day of my new year too.
As such, I’ve decided to start rough drafting again. Good idea in theory. Except it turned out that the heat and lack of use of my fountain pen resulted in it totally clogging up. Which means I’m currently sitting with a jug of water next to my laptop, submersing the pen’s tip to unclog it. It’ll probably take a few more hours before I’ll be able to use it again. But hey, at least in this heat (fourth day in a row where temperatures were higher than 40 degrees Celsius), the tip will dry quickly.
In the meantime, I decided that it’s time to update my blog a bit. I actually made the back-ground myself, and maybe I’m biased, but it’s giving me the warm-and-fuzzies to look at. It just feels so clean and light and different.
Then, I also decided I’m going to bring back two regular features on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
(possibly starting next week), I’ll be sharing news snippets. This’ll be everything from cool posts, to blogfests/hops, books being released etc. So if you have a piece of news you’d like for me to share, please mail me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com
in the subject line. This is especially important if you want to make sure your news is shared here, because with the amount of blogs I visit, I might not spot your particular piece of news on a given day. Also, you can let me know someone else’s good news if you don’t think I know about it yet.
On Thursdays I’d like to host other bloggers. You don’t HAVE to have a book to sell. You can just advertise your blog this way if you want. (Also, please note that if you’re trying to arrange a blog-tour you don’t have to post on Thursdays. This is just a nice open day for everyone to use regardless of publishing status.) For more information or to book a guest post date (all Thursdays are currently open), please mail me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com with Guest Post in the subject line. Please note that this offer is not open to copywriters looking to write samples.
Other that, I’ll basically be writing about writing and my experiences as a writer. (As always.)
To 2016! Charge!
