I want to introduce you all to Haley Schluter.
She is a vibrant, young, promising college student with a ‘voice’ that makes you feel like you are sitting across from her at a coffee shop having a chat. Her writing style is fun, comfortable, confident and she is a riot! Oh and did I mention she has curly hair? I’m a fan of curly hair. Watch for her and her curly hair, I’m sure you will be seeing more of her in the years to come!
Why Your Blog’s Voice Speaks Volumes
“…that you were not engaged with us because of your person; because of the parody of work that you display as “art” are a taint to that which is pure and true.” – anonymous
So I received this in an email yesterday from a fellow artist that is involved in ‘supporting’ fellow poets and artists through different methods of group interactions, writing prompts, competitions etc.
Might I also mention this someone has reblogged my work multiple times and has also left kind, supportive and encouraging mentions on many of my poetry posts. So when I read the above comment I was completely shocked.
After much thought I have decided to leave this person anonymous and coming to this conclusion was a big challenge for me. I take leadership, image, honesty and example very seriously. I realize it’s not about the person it’s the idea of what art is that really got me going. Continue reading
I am looking for a few guest bloggers.
The posts must be new pieces, never before posted/published.
The topics that I am interested in are as follows:
- Personal experience pieces on publishing, writing, etc. for example the ups and downs of being a writer/poet/author/blogger or writing tips, tricks of the trade, your writing routine, how to keep motivated, the muse… etc.
- A book review of my new poetry anthology The Vault First Floor. Keep it real, honest and creative.
- An important cause or mission to you that you want to bring awareness to.
If any of these topics interest you please email me your submission for review at firstname.lastname@example.org with Guest Blog in the subject line of your email. Please be sure to include all public domain, free to use images or consent on other images.
As you probably know, hundreds of thousands of writers sign up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) each year — essentially volunteering to write one 50,000-word novel from scratch in a month’s time. That’s a lot of writing for authors who may want to participate in NaNoWriMo, but are running short on free time. (Like ME)
Have you all heard about the Grammarly Group writing project coming up this November?
If not take a look.
They plan to organize the largest group of authors to ever collaborate on a novel; they’re calling the project #GammoWriMo.
For more information on this unique and oh so creative opportunity please check out the link I provided below.
Happy writing to you all!

In light of my post The 1 thing that Writers and Bloggers need to know before they begin I decided that I would like to write a few duets, well, 3 to be exact.
I am looking for fellow writers and poets to do a duet with me that I will post on my blog and then add to my free ebook that I will be publishing in the upcoming months along with all of the past ‘Storetries’
The concept is a back and forth piece written together. One will be with a writer going back and forth between their paragraph prose and my poetic verse. Two will be a purely poetic duet. Continue reading
Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement!
When I started my blog I had no idea what to expect or even any idea what to write about. The journey has evolved on it’s own and I’m so amazed that even one of you actually wants to read my poetry and posts so thank you so much for helping me build confidence in my writing. There is much more to come I assure you!
I know over the summer my Pay Day Thursdays were interrupted along with the weekly ‘Storetries’ but they will return in October for those of you that are wondering and interested!
Also, the ads that keep popping up at the end of my posts are not there by my choice, Word Press just decides to put them where they want…for now.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, TODAY IS A HAPPY DAY FOR ME!!
