Over 100,000 Views – Wow! How Exciting! Thank You

“Over 100,000 Blog Views – Wow! How Exciting! Thank you” by Joan Y. Edwards

On Wednesday, February 5, 2014 I passed 100,000 blog views. I bow humbly to all who have read my blog. I never dreamed that so many wonderful people would read my blog. I never dreamed that I would meet so many delightful people by writing my blog. On October 9, 2009 when I started this blog, the only thing I knew was that I wanted to help inspire people to never give up on themselves.

Today I would like for you to help me celebrate.

  • Do something fun that you’ve put off for a long time.
  • Try something new that you’ve been afraid of doing.
  • Watch your favorite movie.
  • Write a story telling a funny experience you had growing up.

Linda Martin Andersen asked if I’d do a writing a novel workshop this year. I’m working on the details to offer a “Write a Novel with Me Workshop.” I don’t know when, nor the the cost yet, but I know that it will have:

  1. Pitch – Short Summary (logline)
  2. Outline with plot points
  3. Characterization
  4. How to begin and end chapters
  5. Tension on every page
  6. Dialogue showing distinctive voice of each character
  7. When to Get Your Work Critiqued
  8. How to Revise
  9. Where to Submit

Three cheers for my readers!
RAH RAH RAH
OLE OLE OLE

Celebrate you every day.
You are a gift to our world
Never Give Up

    • Dear Roxanne,
      Thank you for sending me an email explaining that you’re not the Roxanne who is setting up a publishing company. Maybe this means you will in the future. Or that you’ll be published by the other Roxanne’s company. Either is possible. Thanks for caring about me.
      I appreciate you reading my blog! You give me life.
