Change is in the Wind

We live our lives based on the decisions we make—and the decisions we make by not choosing when we had the chance. Jordaina Sydney Robinson, our Friday blogger, has had one major decision to address recently. She was offered a big promotion at work—and she accepted the new challenges the promotion will entail.

One of the challenges of her promotion will be more hours working at that job, leaving less time for other things. Since she wanted to maintain her actual fiction-writing time, something else had to go. Jordaina decided one of the somethings would have to be her active participation in the Writers Who Kill blog.

As you know, she has anchored our Friday spot. All of us at the WWK blog wish Jordaina the best in her new job responsibilities, her creative life and life in general. We hope she will rejoin us on a Welcome Wednesday here and there to continue to share her thoughts.

Her decision has meant the rest of us had some to make as well, specifically, finding a replacement for Jordaina. We agreed early on we wanted to find someone to participate with the WWK blog on an equal partnership with we three remaining founders. We also wanted to add someone to our group with a bit different perspective to provide both our readers and ourselves additional learning opportunities.

We believe we have struck pay dirt.

Starting next Friday, Ramona Long will join WWK and blog on Fridays. Many of you may already know or know of Ramona. For everyone else, stop by next Friday when in her inaugural post she will introduce herself.
