Two-Year Blogiversary!

Two-Year Blogiversary!

Scribes & Archers is turning two! At least the scheduled, halfway-professional version of Scribes & Archers; the amateur, sporadic blog known as Alpine Writer is just Scribes & Archers’s backstory. But anyway, to celebrate I’ll be answering your questions, reacting to your assumptions about me, and sharing some things I’ve learned, and what I’ve been up to lately. Enjoy!

Best Birthday Ever Tag

Best Birthday Ever Tag

Let it be said that Julia at Lit Aflame takes the cake for best birthday emails to her newsletter people ever. They’re stuffed full of her lovely humor, and they include… an entire blog tag? (And that’s just the first email.) If you had any doubt that Julia’s newsletter would be awesome, this should quell that fear. (But you should sign up because Julia’s awesome, not just because she’ll make you feel awesome on your birthday. ;) ) Anywho… there’s a blog tag. So I’m going to do said blog tag. Enjoy. :) Continue reading “Best Birthday Ever Tag”

Return from Hiatus

Hello, everyone! I’m back from my hiatus (more or less, at least), and looking to prep for my two-year blogiversary post. I have three questions for you:

1. What do YOU want to see in my two-year blogiversary post?

2. What are your assumptions about me? (FYI, I’m very hard to offend, so don’t be shy.)

3. Do you have any questions about me, my writing, the blog, etc. that you’d like me to answer?

I want to make the post fun for you, so please let me know down in the comments what you’d like to see. :)

Hiatus Notice

Due to a hectic schedule, I haven’t managed to post according to schedule for the past three weeks, and since my schedule is just going to get more hectic going into July I’ve decided to take an official summer hiatus. I’ll still be sending out my newsletters every other week, so if you’re on the list you won’t be completely out of the loop. (If you’re not subscribed and would like to be, you can sign up via the form on the right. Just be sure to check off “Reader,” “Writer,” or both so I know which newsletter(s) should go to you.)

I’ll be back at the beginning of August, just in time for my two-year blog anniversary, and I’ll be doing some special stuff for that. I’m thinking primarily of doing a Q&A and answering your assumptions about me. I’ve been curious about the assumptions thing for as long as it’s been a trend, but I haven’t done it yet mostly because it is a trend (and also I wasn’t sure if you’d be annoyed to see yet another assumptions post XD), but I’d really like to hear your assumptions. So if you’d like you can go ahead and comment on this post with questions and assumptions, and I’ll answer them in my blogiversary post, and I’ll probably ask for more near the end of July, in case not everyone gets to it now.

Also, I’m writing for a group blog called Masterful Manuscripts now and I’ll put up about three posts there between now and the end of my hiatus, so you can continue to get writing tips, not only from me but also from a group of other talented authors, over the summer.

Have a great summer!
