Juncture

The present is both
The past of the future
And the future of the past.
And the point of pointing this out
Is hopefully to compel you
To take a step back from going forward
To consider where you’re going.

While searching blogs tonight, I came accross this great story of a little girl whose fanciful tale was published along with some other children’s stories, and how excited she was to see her own words in a book, and to see what other kids had written…

ATTENTION ANYONE WHO:
has kids, knows kids, works with kids, or has a social media audience who has (or are) kids.

Rifll Publishing, Inc. is looking to tell all the kids ages 5 to 13 about a fun contest they can win.

You DON’T have to think your kid is the world’s next great author. And your kids DON’T have to love writing to enter. Rifll’s rules are simple; check them out, help a kid submit something, and the fun will follow!

Several First Place winners will be offered contracts to have their entries published in a paperback anthology of writings by kids and for kids.

All other entries will receive Second Place, and receive the option of being posted on a special page of Rifll Publishing’s website.

When’s the last time you knew of a child who had the pleasure of showing friends and family something he or she wrote, displayed on the internet; or had the pleasure of holding in their hands a book full of stories written by folks their own age?

Now you can help make that possible, for FREE.

Kids CAN write things that are fun and worth reading, and this challenge can ENCOURAGE them to love writing and reading.

Help your kids to enter.

Also please POST THIS to your blog, FaceBook, Twitter, email it out; tell your coworkers, your kids’ friends, teachers, and youth groups.

The more entries, the more fun!

It’s been a very busy spring for me. I never meant to go so long without posting to this blog. But I’m coming back…

First stop was to check my other social sites (FaceBook, etc.), commenting on what others are up to and reposting some things I really enjoyed to FaceBook:
 http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003226279447

Next step is to add some valuable content to the web–some things I hope others will find helpful, or at least interesting. This is planned to happen really soon. I have lots of notes to edit into posts.

But right now I must complete an errand
Regarding a new business I am starting with a friend.
This will be a helpful business too,
And we hope it can help you.
I’ll let you know what it’s all about
Just as soon as the webpage is present to tout.
I have to finish drawing the logo,
And make sure the prices are in a row,
With a bit of fine print all in tow.
I have to finish the HTMLs
And double-check how everything spells.

(Yup, I checked, it spells “everything”. …..Just kidding.)

So, I’ll see you here again soon.

I’m excited!

My Publisher's business card with Logo

Rifll Publishing, Inc. has posted two new items on their “writing” page: a very silly mini-story I co-wrote with my 8-year-old son, and a spiritual poem I co-wrote with my mother.

Check them out; and while you are there, see how you can write with me also–maybe even getting a creation (with your name as co-author) “published” on the website as well 🙂

Just go to http://www.rifll.com/write.htm
