What's Up The Street For Next Week?

There are changes in the air here on the Alley.

And it is not just the nip causing the leaves to change coats.

Do you have a tissue handy? Here take one of my mine. There, are you ready?

The Sunday posts for finding up what is coming next week are a thing of the past. Yes I know, a tear just dripped from my eye too. And that is not the worst of it, the Special Guest Saturday feature is a thing of the past too. So I hope you read yesterdays, because that is our last one.

BUT, I have good news to to go along with that bad news. What's Up the Street for Next Week is getting moved to SATURDAY! And the occasional guest that will wow us with their wisdom will now be any day of the week that one of the Alley authors wants to invite them.

Here, use my trash can for all those soggy tissues, because there is no need to cry!

So, what's up the street for this coming week, take a peek... (yes I'm a poet and didn't even know it)

Monday: Pepper just finished a class with author Steven James, stop by to find out what she learned with her post: Questions to Ask About Your Novel with Steven James

Tuesday: What could be crazier than trying to write 50,000 words in a month?? Sherrinda give us the inside scoop on writing during NaNoWriMo month with her post: NaNo Land vs. The Looney Bin

Wednesday: Mary takes us on a journey into the obscurity and adding the proper details to our fiction. To avoid Abe cutting down a cherry  tree or St. Valentine delivering our Christmas packages, Mary gives advice on where to find these Dazzling Obscurities

Thursday: What's in a Name? Casey takes some of her favorite book titles and character names and shows you what makes a stand up and stand out memorable character.

Friday: Krista continues her Romancing the Blog series with shhhhh, don't use the "S" word. Don't worry she will keep it family friendly. But when is enough, too much? Don't miss it!

Oh, sad! But I understand--I'm sure you guys were keeping really busy posting every single day of the week! I'm glad you'll still have the Weekend Edition, though. :)

Can't wait for you party, Casey!!!
