Life is just full of adventure. And I’m not just saying that because I’m currently on the road with my husband, following a dream that brought us together when we were just dating. That idea, to set off and tour through as much of the world as we could reach, was our five year plan when we married. It took over 15 years and a lot of trial and error to create though! lol.
Life is also unpredictable.
Setting out on a road trip with a destination that diverts with the weather has brought a lot of changes to my writing and teaching life. And it reminded me of an idea in the back of my mind when I first created the AmWritingFantasy website. I just knew this website could be big. In fact, I hoped it would become bigger than I could manage alone.
Jump ahead some big life events, a major road trip, and a bunch of other details and a workload that I would have buckled down and gotten done was suddenly too much to handle alone. But I was alone. Not good.
I spent a muddy ten mile hike in the Pukawaska National Park along the northern shore of Lake Superior trying to figure out who I could approach for help. Well, between looking at the scenery and crossing a narrow suspension bridge over a waterfall and gorge! Somewhere on that hike, I realized I knew the perfect someone to ask.
In fact, this author I had in mind gives my work ethic a run for its money, and considering I’m on my thirteenth book with two writing courses available, that is saying something! I wrote an email a dozen times in my head during that long walk and I was still nervous I’d come across as… strange? Figuring the worse I risked was an awkward conversation and a no, leaving me right where I was, I hit send when I finally managed to write something coherent and waited, trying not to be nervous. lol.
What came out of that email was more than I expected.
Instead of just help, after a few conversations, we realized there was a potential for so much more. Like new courses, a new focus, and other big, awesome changes that I can’t wait to share with you! This is not going to be simply splitting some blogging duties.
What is coming is going to help you!
This is a partnership that is going to create new resources. So if you think AmWritingFantasy is good now, you are going to love what is in the works. Want to know more? Good! Stop back by for the announcement and see the website as it develops!
But if you want to see the first changes stop by the Facebook Group! I named the group Slay it, well before I managed to scoop up the url AmWritingFantasy.com. But now that I have it, and have someone to bounce ideas off of, and grow even better ones, we realized it was time to align the group with the website. You’ll see some changes over the next couple of days in the Facebook group, but the biggest one is the name. We are now a new, rebranded group!
So if you want to discover who is now the other half to AmWritingFantasy and say hello to the new AmWritingFantasy Facebook Group, jump over to Facebook and find out!
