Hi. Thanks for coming to the Journeys in Ink Kick-off Party. But seriously, where were you? You’re late. You missed the balloons and cookies we passed out to the first people who hit us up. (What??? No, it’s not rude. It’s life. We said, “first come, first serve”…Sorry. My co-bloggers think it’s rude we didn’t have enough favors. I don’t. If you want to get goodies, show up early, or on time at least). And since you missed the speech, yes, there was a speech, and you missed it, here are the key points:
♦ This is a collaborative blog. We will be sharing tips, our experiences, our ups & downs, bursts of creativity, some creative exercises, recipes and general words about writing, editing, marketing, publishing and other fun stuff.
♦ We are all at different stages in our careers, as you are if you’re a writer, and everyone is free to their own opinions. Please refrain from mudslinging. Let’s be a community of supporters.
♦ We will not pull any punches and prancy-foot around. Life is brutal, so is publishing.
♦ We reserve the right to be silly or serious. It’s our blog.
♦ If you have questions regarding anything in writing or publishing, please send your inquiries to email@example.com and we will do our best to provide answers.
♦ If you wish to be a guest blogger and have some insight you’d like to share, become an active participant, and we may let you in. Just give us a head’s up regarding your interest.
♦ Though it may be a long, winding, hilly road to success, don’t give up. Keep writing, keep improving, keep going for your gold.
Well, thanks for coming to our Kick-off Party. Please feel free to look around and weigh in with your comments as we post.
