The new site is almost ready to launch. We’re currently working on setting up a static front page. There will then be four blog pages. One for each of the four main groups. We may add more later but, to begin with, we will be using these categories:
As the Steering Committee, we think everyone can fit into these four divisions. Each one will be further divided as time goes on and we will probably add Editorial and Technical later for those of us interested in the mechanics of it all. For now, though, we want to concentrate on the writing.
So what we need from each of you now is to choose which of the above four categories you feel fits your writing best. I know we have all kinds of fiction writers from Mystery to SciFi/Fantasy and KidLit. We’ll be breaking that down eventually.
Although we know that Inspirational writing can be either Fiction or Non-fiction, for now we are putting it in the non-fiction section. If your inspirational writing is mostly fiction, and you aren’t comfortable with signing up for non-fiction, then go ahead and put your name in the Fiction group, there will be an Inspirational section there eventually.
Multi-media will also cover a wide range, from Photography and Scripts to Podcasting, and it will be broken down later as well.
If you write song lyrics, you can join either the Poetry or the Multi-Media group. Personally, I’d say Poetry if you only write the words, Multi-Media if you also do the music. But that’s just my opinion, the decision is up to you.
For now, just choose from the above four so that we can start setting up the Forums and discussion groups.
We are planning to create a montage of the people in each group to use as the header for their blog page. Before we can move on with this project we need you to send us a favorite picture of yourself and tell us which group you identify with most. The photo should be, at least 600 pix wide. If you already have something suitable on your bio, just let us know that and give us your choice of the four groups.
Just click the link and drop us an email, with the picture attached, ASAP please. We’re looking forward to an exciting cruise.
