Back to work

First of all I want to thank all my friends who participated in the Choices Guest Post Festival from the end of August to mid September:

Susan Weidener
Deborah Kalan
Viki Noe
Ace Antonio Hall
Meryl Hartstein
Chanel Brenner
Eleanor Vincent
Jerry Waxler
Sherrey Meyer
Linda Joy Myers
Karen Levy
Kathy Pooler

You all certainly raised the bar over here. During the last three and a half weeks the number of views more than doubled because of your contributions.

So it’s time for me to get back to work. I need to keep the momentum going by posting myself and hosting guests as much as possible. Please let me know if you’d like to share your writing story on Choices in the near future.

On Wednesday, my guests will be Cami Ostman and Susan Tive who will share about their anthology, Beyond Belief: what happens when women of extreme religions decide to walk away. Choices is their last stop on their Women on Writing WOW blog tour. 

I’m particularly excited about this subject matter. One of my friends, Izzy Eichenstein, has written about his experience of walking away from his ultra-orthodox Chassidic Jewish roots in his memoir, The Rebel and the Rabbi’s Son. His story got me very interested in this topic. So please help me welcome Cami and Susan on Wednesday, August 25 – right here.

In the meantime, I’ll post a few photos from our recent trip on safari in Kenya and Tanzania. I love ending my blog posts with pretty pictures.
