Summer Blogging Series: CATCH UP!


I caught this guy napping on the couch AGAIN, and she was over in the next room, snoozing instead of writing… and I totally get it – it’s not easy writing or following a bunch of thought provoking prompts when you have little children screaming all over you, crying, moaning, needing, wanting, neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeding and perhaps even worse, oozing things like bodily fluids (- if you are potty training? I am, it’s awful).

So how about a break?

We’ll take this weekend to write the posts we’d like to work on from the preceding weeks (all links are open and below), or the coming weeks, or go ahead and email me your posts in document form for the book! (- my email address is

The Book

Now, THE BOOK. I’m going to be compiling the posts of people who want to participate in this project and we’ll sell it for a few dollars and donate 100% of the proceeds (- that is, minus the cost of publishing) to an organization we all agree on.

If you have a post or two that you’d like to see in the book compilation, that’s fine. If you have the whole series that you’d like to see in the book compilation, that’s fine. There is no limit or restrictions. Personally, I care far more about quality over quantity.

So, if you want to participate, just contact me using the form right here:
