Inspired by Collaboration (and bunnies)…
Fiction writing is generally a solitary pursuit. It’s just you, your laptop/notebook, and all the words you know. Having that control, creating a universe out of nothing – that’s what it’s all about, right? Playing God. Of course, some writers co-author books. While I can’t imagine doing that, at least not at this point. I’ve discovered there are projects where collaboration with another writer can be fun. HUGE fun. (It also makes the project WAY better).
Take Thursday’s Children for example. Nearly a year ago, Kristina Perez and I launched our very first brainchild. I’ve met so many great people, read so many inspiring posts, and had such a wondeful time. Thank you to all who have participated!
And then came Like A Virgin 2013, our “second born” – the first writing contest Kristina and I did. More great people, more fun and the satisfaction of helping other writers move a little closer to their goals. Once LV13 was over, we began making plans for …
Coming at you next spring!
Every venture has a lifespan, and when the urge to do something new strikes, well it’s just this irresistible.
So, August 22 will be the last Thursday’s Children bloghop.
We hope you’ll all be here to celebrate its run and for the reveal of the NEXT BIG THING that Kristina and I have cooked up!
No, it’s not Bun-nado, it’s even MORE exciting!!
Here are the Codes for this week.

Oooh, What could that fabulous project be??? I’m all ears, like a bunny. Thanks to you and Kristina for running the Thurs Blog hop. I met some wonderful inspiring stories as well. Gonna miss the tour. But I know, you two, have something really great cookin’
Believe me, it’s KILLING me to wait another two weeks!
I’m intrigued. 🙂 And sorry that TC has run it’s course, but I know you–you’re cooking up something fun. Can’t wait for the news.
Yes, funfunfun and more fun 😉
WHAAAAAAT!!!? *Dies a little inside*
I’m excited to hear what you’re cooking too, but…I’m still sad. TC made me start blogging regularly again. It gave me a purpose. I’ll always be grateful. Sigh….
Well, if YOU want to take it over, I’m sure Kristina and I would be happy to transfer custody… And really, thank you for letting us know TC served a purpose 😀
Ooooh, exciting things are afoot!!! LV13 was a blast – can’t wait for the next one! Thanks to you two for sharing your brainchildren 🙂
Glad you had fun with LV13, so happy you were a part of it 🙂
I can’t wait to hear what your Next Big Idea will be about! In the meantime, thanks again for hosting Thursday’s Children and organising Like A Virgin! 🙂
You’re very welcome, and thanks so much for participating in both!
I originally read ‘organising’ as ‘orgasming’. Yep. That contest… *shakes head* *giggles*
Snort. I do like the name Virgin Orgasm as a band name though…
You two are a fine example of what makes this community so brilliant! Givers, doers, achievers….round of applause. And yay for next big thing!
Aw, that’s so sweet, thank you 🙂 and thanks for being involved!
I just saw this post (looking to see if the next week’s codes were up yet). I’m sort of sad about it too. 😦
Well, all good things… Hope you’ll participate in the next fun project 🙂
Thursday’s Children has been incredible, I’m going to miss reading all of the inspiring posts! Thank you all for setting it up, it’s just what I needed : )
