Inspired by…Thursday’s Children

A weekly blog hop where writers share their inspirations. Please join us!

A weekly blog hop where writers share their inspirations. Please join us!

A year ago I started blogging, because I read somewhere that writers should have a blog. Honestly I thought the whole concept was kind of weird, like talking to yourself out loud. In an attempt to engage other people, I started sharing bizarre photos on a weekly basis. I called it Inspirational Thursdays, thinking maybe other people would get story ideas from the same images. After meeting my adjective-defying CP/friend Kristina, this solo concept turned into a collaborative venture called Thursday’s Children. Over the weeks a blog hop evolved into a small community of writers sharing parts of their journeys.

I’ve often been inspired, not only by whatever inspiration you’ve shared in a post, but by your determination in the face of setbacks, your hard-won successes, the lovely things you’ve all said to me and to each other as you comment on TC posts. We all have far to go, but you’ve made the journey much more fun and far less lonely. Thank you!

Thursday’s Children and the Like A Virgin contest confirmed just how awesome it is to bring people together for mutual gain (and good times). Like any shiny new idea, it’s been KILLING me not to spill about THIS one.

Apologiesfor any nightmares you may suffer as a result of that gif…

Now without further ado, please click on the badge below for a sneak peek at the new project Kristina and I have cooked up. We’ve got some awesome writers lined up as mentors, aka Lounge Lizards. And this time, it’s not just about YA/NA. Stay tuned for #CriTiki news on Twitter!

  1. Awwww. So inspired by you and Kristina’s efforts. And meeting all of the wonderful TC has been in a sweet spot on this writing journey. Can’t wait to see what you girls cook up next!! Don’t think I’m posting in this last round(I’m over at Mother, Write, Repeat in the critique forum today), but I will spin around and say adieu–but not really, goodbye. Never goodbye. πŸ˜‰ ((big hugs!!))

  2. First of all, that little old man is creeping me out. 😐
    I am so grateful to have found Thursday’s Children. You helped me through some rough times and have inspired me to #keepgoing. Because of you, Rhiann, and Louise my writing has improved immensely. I’m back to writing everyday, and not wanting to stop (but, my family expects me to feed them, so sometimes I have to).
    Can’t wait to see what Critiki has in store!

  3. Yeah, blogging is totally weird.

    I always felt like I should have a blog, too, but it wasn’t until Thursdays Children came along that I figured out what to post on it! Thank you and Kristina for giving us all such an awesome community! Excited to check out the CriTiki Lounge (adorable, btw)!

  4. Well, thanks for the continued inspiration and motivation to blog weekly!!! You guys are the best. And the Critiki Lounge? Brilliant! I love all things island-y and Hawaiian, so I’ll be perusing the lounge (fruity-umbrella-straw drink in hand) FOR SURE!!!

    • Technically most people don’t query until their ms is complete, just in case an agent asks to see the full, and at times we will have Big Kahunas in the Lounge. So, that would be a risk you’d have to think long and hard about.

    • Will definitely keep that in mind πŸ™‚ *puts Fog Cutter* into raised hand. And everyone is welcome to comment on the Fire-Eaters’ performances, not just the Lounge Lizard du jour, so to speak.
