ask me what i did today ...

announcement time:

i'm pregnant!!

bwahahahahah ... just kidding. seriously. that's not even funny.

just wanted to get your attention.

a couple of weeks ago i got the sweetest email from beth williams, editor of memory makers. she invited me to be one of the contributing editors for 2009!!


i'll be writing a column on telling your story ... my guess is it'll be a tie-in to this little project:


my plan at this point is to start a series of once-a-week prompts and challenges. maybe "writerly wednesdays" or "storytelling saturdays" or "thesaurus thursdays" ... the last one is a joke. unless you like it. then it's not.

thoughts? any interest? someone want to start a list of who will provide snacks each week?

fellow '07 masters and all-around amazingly wonderful women katrina simeck and crystal jeffrey rieger will also be putting their fingerprints on each issue of the magazine as contributing editors. their talent has been no-fail inspiration for me over the past two years, and i'm so glad we're onto this new endeavor together!

so that's it. that's the news. let me know if you'd like a journaling problem discussed and addressed here, and i'll add it to the list of stuff to write about on "treatise tuesday" ... i mean, "script & scrawl saturday" ... "memoir monday" ...



OMG- you totally had me, lol!Congratulations on your new job and BOOK. I am dying to see it, when will it be out? I look forward to your columns.

Good Grief! I almost choked on a pistachio...

My vote is for Memoir Mondays.


Susan Beth Breuner

Congrats on that invite! What an honor for you! I actually enjoy the journaling part of scrapbooking, my biggest problem isn't telling the story, but making a place on the page to put it.
