You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting on my blog here very often of late. That’s because…
I’m setting up a new website! Its going to be karaswanson.com…
I’ve been busy drafting posts so that when my new site goes live, there will be lots of fun things for y’all to read. So, because of that, I probably won’t be posting on readwritesoar.com all that often for the next couple weeks until I can unveil my new blog 🙂
I’m planning on having a lot of features for your enjoyment, but the main catagories/posts I’ll be doing are:
Bet you can’t guess what this one is about? Pretty much anything writing related. As I grow and learn more about the craft, I hope to share what I’ve gleaned. From book proposals and finishing a first draft, to working with an editor and managing the publishing process.
LIVING WITH LYME
Lyme Disease has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with, but it has also been one of the most life-changing challenges I’ve ever gone through. It has forced me to trust God every morning, just to wake up, and push through the pain. Lyme has given me a new perspective, and I hope that my story can in some way encourage others struggling with illness or emotional pain.
Between contributing to The Fandom Studio (https://thefandomstudio.wordpress.com) and my own personal opinions on all types of media, I’ve already been doing quite a few book and movie reviews. However, I’m excited to compile these all, and continue to add more. I will also be looking for guest bloggers/reviewers, so keep that in mind if that’s something you’d be interested in.
SHORT STORY SATURDAY
This is one of the new additions that I am most excited about! Once the website is up and running, I will be posting a new short story selection every Saturday–or almost every Saturday 🙂 The story that I’m currently writing for you is a gothic retelling of Cinderella, with a bit of Maleficent thrown in for good measure. This retelling centers mostly on the fairy godmother of the story–but you have never seen the tubby, shimmering blue fairy quite like this.
Due to some updates and such that my website designer (who also happens to be my Uncle *waves*) is working through, it will most likely be a few weeks till the new site us up and running, but I promise it will be worth the wait! In the meantime, I’ll probably be blogging over on thefandomstudio.com. See you there!
What do you think of me updating my website? What new component are you most excited about? What would you like to see added? Feel free to comment below! Thanks.
