What's Up The Street For Next Week?

In honor of our guest this week, Jen Stephen's post on goals, the weekend edition is all about making a goal and reaching for it.

Do you have any goals?

Have you reached them?

Or do you need to set a new one?

Take a small step in faith. Reach for the stars! You might be surprised at what you find.

So, here are the goals this week for the Alley. The only question is, will we make them? ;-)

Monday- Join Dr. Pepper as she prepares to go to the ACFW conference next month!! (We all are still a bit jealous). Excitement and preparation abound as she gets ready to pack her bags and fly off to Indy, but first she posts about one sheets and the "visual pitch."

Tuesday- Sherrinda is swamped with 12 hour work days and moving, so today is a SURPRISE day! Except something great, but different from the normal schedule. ;-)

Wednesday- Mary gives a glimpse into the art form in writing we all long to understand on a deeper level- metaphor and similies, grace and depth to add to your fiction.

Thursday- Casey tackles the controversial topic of swearing in fiction. Agree? Disagree? Stop by to share your opinion.

Friday- The final installment of "Tips From Those That Have Gone Before Us" with author Michael Snyde on "Considering Your Audience"

Saturday-  Our special guest is an interview with author, Margaret Brownley! Stop by to glean from her words of wisdom.

SideWalk Talk
Mark your calendar and ceck out the amazing lineup of authors we are inviting over for a chat in the month of September!

Amanda Cabot coaches us on keeping our series accurate.

Cara Putman takes a moment to share her wisdom just before the ACFW conference.

James Scott Bell, best selling author and teacher at the ACFW conference, shares an interview he had with our own Pepper!

Joseph Bentz instructs us on the importance of living with our characters.

What a lineup! Takes my breath away, so exciting to have them all visit here very soon!

Pepper has a new job! And is moving! And is trying to get a new story written that her agent has requested! (and is feeling a tad overwhelmned) Visit her blog would you and let you know she isn't alone?

Mary always has a new Bible story written in her own fictional account on her personal blog, check it out this week!

It's going to be a great week on the Alley! We look forward to sharing it with you.
