First Update – Off for a Month

Hey everyone! I figure I should try to give everyone an update on the processes for this site. I won’t do this often, but I will let you know what goes on, if there’s anything new or if there’s been any delay in new posts.

I’ve been off for a month doing adult things: working to earn my pay, working on improving myself as a person (also, dealing with some personal stuff), and most recently, having gone on a vacation. But now, I’m back, and I’m hoping to get back into my regular routine of posting poems. I just posted one, but I feel a little rusty, so I’ll have to work on it when I have the time. I appreciate everyone who still follows my blog and I’m hoping to reward your commitment and interest with more content.

Before going on hiatus (if you want to call that), I was mulling over adding a new french-language blog to the roster. I have the blog’s format ready to go with a few poems posted, but I haven’t made the blog available to the internet yet. It’s not like I have all the time in the world to do that – working by day in a field that does not involve writing poems or stories for a living is a slight deterrent to adding content in blogs that involve those things. Plus, Weekly Writing Prompts hasn’t been busy either, and I run these blogs solo, so it adds a lot to my plate. I’ve had to shave off a lot of things in my life just to maintain what I’ve already got, and it took a lot just to get back to this blog. Long story short, that other blog is stuck in the “development hell” phase, if you want to call it that.

Finally, as always, I’m still looking for help in running the blog. Because of what I mentioned earlier, I can’t necessarily run the blog alone, which by doing so will cause it to go silent for certain periods of time. But if you are or you know someone interested in helping run or just contributing to the blog, please send me a message at coeurdunpoete@gmail.com. I’m always happy to follow up with you regarding this and would love to grow the “team”. I wrote “team” like that because, obviously, it’s just me. But I hope that’s not going to be the case for much longer.

Keep writing!

Cd’P!

CDP’s announcement: Weekly Writing Prompts

I’ve got some exciting news regarding our sister blog!

Ladies and gents, how are you?

I’m happy to announce that “The Writer’s Corner”‘s sister blog, “Weekly Writing Prompts”, is back up and running. My friend The Orange Marker and I have been busy with our own things but are now back and ready to go. I will continue to do some poetry for both blogs and do some cross-posting on occasion, but I will do my best to ensure both blogs have their own distinct identities.

I appreciate your continued support of TWC and hope you’ll be able to follow Weekly Writing Prompts (WWP) as well! And, as always, if you’re interested in guest posting for either blog, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Thanks!

– C’DP himself!
