I have updated my new website/blog, www.DaynaLCheser.com. Please stop by and take a look.
My apologies for being a bit remiss in keeping my new website/blog up to date. Life got in the way for a while, but I’m hoping things have quieted down such that I can now keep up. After a bit of a sabbatical from blogging, I’m looking forward to getting back into that, as well.
I appreciate everyone who has followed me here, and to those who keep on checking here for new material. While this site will stay open, it is inactive. I have moved operations to www.DaynaLCheser.com – my new website/blog (‘Posts by Dayna’). ‘DIY Interviews’ has also moved there, too. All ‘DIY Interviews’ after September 24, 2012 appear there.
So, if you want to keep up with my goings on, please visit www.DaynaLCheser.com.
Also there, if you click on the ‘TIME Series’ tab on my new website, you’ll catch up with the goings on with my books – ‘Janelle’s Time,’ which was published in July of 2012, ‘Moria’s Time’ (my 2011 NaNoWriMo project), which is being edited as I write this, ‘Adelle’s Time,’ which was my 2012 NaNo project, ‘Logan’s Time,’ which is about thee quarter’s through the first draft, and ‘Clarissa’s Time,’ which will be my 2013 NaNo project.
I invite all my friends who have so faithfully followed me here to please come over to www.DaynaLCheser.com and sign up for the emails from me there.
Very soon, I’ll be posting excerpts from ‘Moria’s Time,’ as soon as the edits are done. This is the story of Moria from her infancy to her mid-twenties. Before she was born, Agnes, the healer from Eastwell, a village on Devonwood in England, had a vision about Moria. Believing it was about Janelle, Moria’s mother, she was confused. But, upon seeing the infant Moria, she knew it was about her, and not her mother. She saw Moria as a young woman going far from home, to a dangerous place, not only to her, but to those around her, as well.
As Moria journeys through life, she meets some interesting people, including Elizabeth Blackwell, Frederick Douglass, Florence Nightingale, and Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. All of these real-life historical figures had an effect on Moria’s life, leading up to the fulfillment of the vision when Moria goes far from home to a dangerous place. She also meets Dr. Simon Hensley.
My next post on www.DaynaLCheser (‘Posts by Dayna’) will be the story of the writing of ‘Moria’s Time.’ I learned so much …
Please stop by and look around, I hope you’ll like what you see.
The Mama’s and Papa’s (the 60’s singing group) had a song entitled ‘Look Through My Window.’ One of the lines in that song that has stayed with me for all these years is: “And nothing’s quite as sure as change—”
Ain’t that the truth!
‘A Place for Writers’ is not actually moving – it will stay right here, right where it’s been for over two and a half years. But, it will be static. All of the posts – and all the DIY Interviews – will still be accessible. And, people will still be able to leave comments – I promise to check in here regularly – but I am moving to a new home – www.DaynaLCheser.com
Some of the APW content is cloning my new site (but will stay here, as well). For example, all the DIY Interview information will be available on both sites. Where ‘A Place for Writers’ is a WordPress.com site – blog only – my new site is a full-fledged website with a new blog ‘Posts by Dayna.’ And, while my legal name is still Julie Jordan, my new site is for my alter-ego – Dayna Leigh Cheser – www.DaynaLCheser.com
To Celebrate the big move and my Grand Opening on my new site – AND – that my Twitter page now has (almost) 15,000 Followers, I’ve got a fun writing contest happening. The Contest will start at 12:00 AM on September 24th and end at 11:;59 PM on October 15, 2012. If you want to know more about the contest, please check out the Contest Information page on my new site – http://bit.ly/DLC-Contest While you’re there, take a look around and leave a comment on the front page – www.DaynaLCheser.com
I’m not moving my mailing lists so I invite you all to come on over, take a look around, and sign up for my emails in your preferred way.
My next post, which would normally be scheduled for September 24th, is up already on my new site. Click on ‘Posts by Dayna’ at www.DaynaLCheser.com to see the new post there.
You know? It’s kind of sad to be leaving this site behind. I’ve learned so much, and met so many great people while doing posts here on APW. But, none of that will change over on DLC. I’m sure I’ll meet lots of fine folks there, too. Will one of them be you?
Please, come on over and look around. I’m sure you’ll like what you see at – www.DaynaLCheser.com.
Happy Writing, and see you soon.
