What's Up the Street For Next Week?

Well, as usual, the Alley has been crowded with a wonderful array of visitors over the summer. Authors of various genres have stopped by our little corner to share their wisdom, humor, and experiences. At a glance here are a few of our past special guests:

Janice Thompson

Deb Raney & Tamera Alexander

Myra Johnson

Michelle Sutton

Margaret Daley

Mary Connealy   

And so many more.


That’s not all. There’s more to come. Just stick around and find out.

What’s going on this week? In celebration of the school year, we have school buses - of all various shapes and sizes. Anyone here NEVER ridden in a school bus? Or do you have some fantastic school bus story from your past? :-)

Tuesday – With life on the move and a full work schedule, Sherrinda will fill us in on writing, work, and everything in between. :-)

Wednesday – Mary gives us a few tips about the future in Writing Today for Tomorrow’s World.

Hey Case,
This week sounds like fun.
So...
ever ridden a school bus?

Casey said...

Oh yes. :) When I was little I was enamored with them, and wanted to ride one SO bad. Got older and found out it wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. And THEN taking a 4 hour drive on a weaving, swaying bus FILLED to the brim with obnoxious teenagers (most anyway), yeah that pretty much put me off bus reading for EVER! :D
