Diligence and Commitment

So, life happens! It's been a week and a day since my last post and I am swimming in frustration. Long hours on the job leaves little time to update my blog AND write. So, I've decided that it's ok to not update the blog daily, but it's not ok to disappear for a week.

For my seven followers (yes, that includes me), I have created an editorial calendar, a schedule of sorts. Now, you can look forward to specific postings on dedicated days. This is my promise to you and myself. Beginning this week you'll see postings on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays or Sundays (depends on my weekend schedule) as follows:

Mondays: The Craft of Writing (topics to help aspiring writers become better at their craft)
Wednesdays:  Industry Round-Up (topics related to the children's publishing industry -- which can be a little different from traditional publishing)
Fridays: My Favorite Things (postings that give you insight into who I am and what makes me tick)
Saturdays/Sundays: Kids Literature (a focus on new and old kids literature in the market--with links to purchase)

I do reserve the right to alter or grow this calendar at my leisure ;-). I am promising you diligence and commitment; I am making the same promise to myself. And when I reach 10 followers, I will send my "talented tenth" a special gift to remind you to remain connected to your inner child. And when I reach 25 followers, I will host a contest for a collection of autographed children's books.

Check back often and keep me honest!

Always, Athena

  1. That's good that you created a schedule.

    I started out blogging daily and it was just *too* much. And life is always happening.

    Look forward to reading your future posts! :)
