AS ELEANOR ROOSEVELT ONCE SAID…
“Write One Email Every Month that Scares You.”
Okay, okay. She actually said, “do one thing every day that scares you.” But if Ellie were around today, I think she’d approve of the writing challenge I’ve set myself for 2018. (I also think she might smack me upside the head with a teacup for calling her “Ellie,” but that’s beside the point.)
I’ve been challenged by a colleague to write the next novella in the “Occupational Hazards” series in installments, and to send those pieces to my Distracted Reader email list as I write them. Now, I’m not precious about my writing, and I’m very open about the fact that nothing is perfect — even after several painful rounds of editing. But the idea that people (even trusted friends like you) might read a story before I even know how it’s going to end??
…AND YOU GET TO PARTICIPATE!
Read WAY before everyone else, AND influence the story.
For those of you my Distracted Reader list, you’ll not only get to read the installments of the story as they’re written, but I’ll be looking for your input from the very beginning. Maybe you’ll name a character, or help the heroine make a tough decision. I’ll send each chapter out via email, and we’ll also discuss them in the private, subscribers-only Facebook Group just for you! (Follow the link and request to join – just input the email address you have subscribed, or I’ll subscribe you with the email you put in).
I’ll also be doing giveaways all year on my main author page AND in the private group, for those who participate.
If you’ve found this post later in the year, do not fret. You’ll receive a link with the story so far in your signup confirmation email.
May 2018 bring you health, adventure, prosperity and… Happy Reading!
