For a while, I’ve been thinking and hoping and trying to branch out my writing efforts beyond this blog. Sure, I’ve been a guest writer for a lot of blogs and websites. But I’ve been looking for something more.
And now it looks like it’s time to clue you in on my new writing project. My friends, Darrell and Ally Vesterfelt (formerly Ally Spotts) are launching Prodigal Magazine. (Actually, it’s a re-launch of a very well established site, but whatever. The site is under new management, and just like that dingy Chinese restaurant down the street, an “under new management” sign is always promising.)
And yours truly is a staff writer, which I have never been able to call myself before. Very prestigious.
Keep reading for the details…
Here’s what that means:
I’ll be appearing on Prodigal a couple of times a month. Darrell and Ally are assembling a great group of writers to fill up your blog reader every day, so I am, by a long shot, not the only attraction. There will be something for everyone.
Why is Prodigal different?
When you read my blog, you’re getting commentary. When you read another guy’s blog, you probably get lists. At Prodigal, you’re going to get none of that. Prodigal is nothing but stories. Go ahead, try to find a compilation of writers with nothing but stories. Good luck, because you will be looking for a long time (unless you add Prodigal to your blog reader right now.)
Story writing is a huge challenge for me, but I’m sure it will be very fulfilling.
And, I’ve got a super secret writing project…
It’s in the works. Darrell and Ally are helping me. But that will have to wait for another time. Let’s just say that it may or may not be, but definitely is awesome.
Do yourself a favor
…and put Prodigal in your blog reader. My posts over there won’t interrupt my schedule here. Sometimes, you won’t know I’ve posted over there, unless you follow me on Twitter. And you’re bound to read some good stuff that I won’t share here. Plus, did I mention that the other writers are great?
Oh, and tell me all about the great new blogs you’ve added to your lists, or the great new projects you’re up to – writing, music, painting, diaper changing, whatever!
