What's Up the Street For Next Week?

Time for another week of fun-filled excitement from just up the street on The Writers Alley. Be prepared for magic, mayhem, ;-) Well, we're getting crazy around here, so watch out.

Monday: Pepper, the panster, writes about plotting using the 13 point plot structure and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. But since she’s a panster, what does she know?

Tuesday: Sherrinda posts about Ditto Writing - In Other Words, how there are no new plots, but many different twists to the tale.

Wednesday: Mary joins us to write about Manuscripts and Comfy Flannel. How do we get a story to have that perfect, comfortable fit? Check out Mary's clues.

Thursday: Spinning a Good Yarn - Writing Lessons Learned From Knitting with Casey. What tales will Casey 'weave' for us today? Writing and knitting? Take a turn over this way and find out.

Friday: Krista's back with more fun, romance, and humor to add to our week. Don't forget to stop by and catch a giggle or two.

Saturday: Author Christa Allan joins us to talk about her publishing experience.

Sidewalk Talk:

Cathy Bryant will fill us in about the ups and downs of self-publishing on May 22nd.

Don’t forget - Award winning author Deb Raney is coming to The Writers Alley on May 29th?

Did you know our Guests Next Door visits for Saturday are already full for the month of JUNE?!? Visitors like Myra Johnson, Michelle Sutton, Margaret Daley, and Lena Nelson Dooley. Check in for times.

And talk about a FUNNY bone (or perhaps entire vertebral column) Mary Connealy is coming in July!!

Mark your calendars.

Monday, May 10th - Our very own Pepper Basham will be the guest on Keli Gwyn’s blog Romance Writers on the Journey. Stop by and read about her crazy life – if you can handle it.

All this week, Casey is running a contest for Cynthia Rutchi’s novel, They Almost Always Come Home on her blog Writing For Christ at

Highlight on Mary!!

Mary, tell us what's going on in your writing right this week, well besides flannel?

"I retell Bible stories in family friendly language. Started with Creation. Currently telling Joseph's story. In a nutshell:

He stood before a foreign leader, a powerful leader. Dressed in foreigner's clothes, speaking what little he taught himself about language, he presented the answer God gave him. Who was this? Come read a good story:"

Looks like an exciting week down the Alley!

Mary, you are so cool. I can tell Bible stories, but it always turns out so basic and I forget all the juicy details! lol

Pepper said...

Good morning, Sherrinda.
I brought DONUTS!! All different kinds, especially chocolate covered or strawberry filled. Yum.

It DOES look like a fun week.
Do you think Casey would knit us matching sweaters, while telling us a story ;-) Woohoo! Go, Casey!

Keli Gwyn said...

So many fun posts to look forward to. Cool!

Happy Mother's Day to those of you who are moms.

Now, Pepper, I have to add some level of calm around here. And I do that best while knitting. :) It might sound strange, but I think it works.

Great post as always!! Makes me excited for a new week. :)

Pepper said...

Did you say calm?
(rolling my eyes) I don't know what you're talking about. Do you, Sherrinda?
Calm. Like we're acting crazy or something.
Perish the thought.

Oh ho! Hi Keli,
See ya tomorrow!!!!!!!!!
