What's Up the Street for Next Week?

A bend in the road. We often don't see it coming. Especially in life. An unexpected event, whether good or bad can take us on a dive in a completely new direction.

What would happen if we didn't follow that bend? If we decided that we were just fine and content to stay in the normal, familiar. I wonder how much we would miss out on. What surprises God might have in store just around the corner. And in writing nothing could be a more curvy journey.

So while you traverse the twists and turns to publication, or to the next WIP or even just to the computer to write, take a quick pit stop and check out what is around the corner here at the Alley.

Monday: A Heavenly Perspective to Character Development. With the ACFW fueling her inspiration, stop by to see what Pepper has to share with us today.

Tuesday: Sharing her thoughts and wisdom in the only way she can, Sherrinda entertains while inspiring.

Wednesday: The Essence of Plot will inspire your morning writing session. And if you have missed the first two "essence" posts, visit them here: Part 1 and Part 2 

Thursday: The last installment in Casey's Myth Buster series is up with Secondary Characters are Cardboard Cutouts. Hmm, does she really know what she is talking about? We shall see, won't we?

Friday: *drum roll please* KRISTA IS BACK! Launching into her new series with Romancing the Blog. It will be so good to have her back, so don't pass up this post!

Saturday: Pinch me, I must be dreaming... Laura Frantz is visiting the blog ladies and gentlemen, and doing a giveaway of both of her books! Don't miss this event, it will be tremendous fun!

SideWalk Talk
With a spectacular line up coming to the Alley in the next few weeks, I have to keep pinching myself about how blessed we are to secure these interview spots. How thrilling can it be to have these wonderful, accomplished authors here with us. Almost as good as going to ACFW!

Awww, thanks, Casey! ;)

That picture was taken on one of our vacations this summer. The lady who made us breakfast most of the week was so sweet, and this was one of the mornings I was enjoying some tea. :) *sigh* I miss summer!

Oh I do too! Fall is fun and enjoyable, but I do miss the warmth and fun of summer.
