|Here we are at the 2014 ANWA Conference in February. |
Aren't we totes adorbs?
(As my teenagers would say.)
We're now teaming up, creating a podcast about all of the language issues that frustrate so many people: Grammar, Usage and Mechanics.
I capitalized those words on purpose, because they are where the name of our podcast comes from: Luisa and I are your GUM Shoes! (Get it? Grammar, Usage, Mechanics? GUM!) Go like the Facebook page at that link so you can stay up to date. The first episode will be posted on Tuesday, March 11, and we'll be sure to share the link to the website when it's live.
Here's the badge you'll look for on iTunes. (Look carefully at the words in the shoe. Isn't the logo awesome?!)
Each episode will be short: a bite-sized tip to help improve your speech and writing. If you have specific questions for us, leave a comment on the GUM Shoes Facebook page!
Our other project won't be live until late April, but we're in the final stages of getting it ready. Many people have asked about our accountability partnership, and we've even blogged about it before. But those posts didn't cover everything we've learned over the years of working together, and people had many more questions, too.
We pitched the idea of teaching a class at the annual Storymakers Writers Conference about accountability partnerships, and we are teaching it!
But not everyone can attend that, and even for those who will, a 50-minute workshop isn't enough to cover the subject entirely.
So here's the second big project: We'll soon have a book released about how to create an accountability partnership to meet your goals. Check out the cover:
We'll be sure to link over when it's live. Exciting stuff, people! I'm thrilled to finally share the news!
