On Writing

On-line Presence – Changes for 2013

TO THIS BLOG:

I will be blogging once a week. About writing. I am aiming for consistency here. All writing-related things will continue to be posted on this site. However, my ‘parenting’ related posts will be moved to the Blogher page I’ve started.

TO AUTHORVANESSA FB:

What I post on FB will include things related to me personally – family stuff, re-posts from my blogs, photos, etc.

TO LAUGHING THROUGH A SECOND PREGNANCY FB:

I will post a line or two every day from my book ‘Laughing Through A Second Pregnancy’. I will post ‘parenting’ and ‘mom’ related things on this page. So tell all your friends, okay?

TO THE WINDSOR STAR PARENTING BLOG:

I will be writing my farewell (final) post for The Windsor Star very soon. I will no longer be writing a blog for The Windsor Star after this farewell post publishes. I would like to say thank you very much to all those who have read and commented on my this blog over the last year and a half. Thank you!

NEW BLOGHER PROFILE:

In an effort to have more freedom to write on ‘parenting’ topics (or on topics not related to writing specifically), I have started a profile on Blogher. I will re-post these pieces on my FB pages. I’m not stopping writing about being a mom…just moving where I’m posting from…and, my priority will be on my personal blog before any other posts are written. I’ll do my best to keep writing from my ‘mom’ voice though. 🙂

Here is my new Blogher Profile.

TO AUTHORVANESSA TWITTER:

It’s been over a year since I’ve joined Twitter. My personal blog posts get tweeted…otherwise, I’m terrible at tweeting. I don’t have time for it…but, once I figure out how it works and what I can do via tweeting that suits my writing identity…you know I’ll work it.

TO WORKSHOPS/CLASSES:

I will not be organizing or leading any workshops or classes this year. I will continue to uphold my mentoring commitments. Trust me – this is a really difficult thing for me to do, but this year is about my writing. It’s a gift I need to give myself.

And so, here spreads 2013 open wide for me to get back to the passion for words that I love to share with others…and that I need to gift myself.

Thank you for reading! Now, let’s get to writing, shall we?

  2. Congratulations! In the movie, Throw Mamma From the Train, the creative writing prof. played by Billy Crystal
    says, “a writer writes, always.” So happy to read your writing convictions and to be inspired to do the same.
    All the best for 2013!

    • Thanks, Dorothy! I love ‘Throw Mama from the train’! It’s true…and it’s amazing how easily the simplicity of sitting down to write can get lost in the everyday…Let’s not get lost this year!
