EDITORIAL:
 

 

Big, big, BIG apologies for leaving you without a newsletter the past few months.

In September, I landed in hospital with pneumonia. I spent an entire week there, and it took well over two months to recover properly. (It was the worst pneumonia I'd had for over five years.)

Top that off with major stress issues with one of my grandchildren (who has PTSD). We're still not quite on top of it yet, but getting there. He was attending school part-time for over two months, which put a lot of strain on hubby and me.

And as if that wasn't enough, I did my back - well and truly - in November.  Two bulging discs as well as other major problems.  I was out of action for over two months with that. 

So as you can see, life has been rather difficult.  Please forgive me, but it's been almost impossible to do much at all since September.

I really wanted to just touch base with you, and let you know that, yes, I am still alive.  Just not in the best place at the moment.

But there is some good news amongst all this doom and gloom - the Writer to Writer newsletter was once again nominated for the Preditors and Editors Readers Awards.

I'm happy to report the newsletter earned the top award, coming in at equal first!

The Writer2Writer website was also nominated, and came in at #7, therefore earning a spot in the coveted Top Ten Finisher slot.

Thanks go to those of you who voted to make this happen.

As I said earlier, I really only wanted to touch base, so there's no article this time around.  I hope to be in a position to send out another newsletter in 2-3 weeks, but everything is based on a day-to-day assessment at the moment.

 

 

 

 

Til next time…

Please support Writer2Writer.com and the Writer to Writer newsletter by purchasing through advertising links in this newsletter. This keeps the newsletter and other information (such as fr*ee courses) at no charge to subscribers.  Many similar publications are now charging a yearly fee - I'm constantly fighting against that trend.  

Right now, the online world is literally begging for writers. People that can tap out a few words - providing content for the millions of sites out there.

You don't have to have a lot of experience, you just have to be able to piece together a few simple sentences - and submit them to the SECRET ONLINE WRITING MARKETS that most people have absolutely NO idea about.
