Jeff (the gentle, kind soul that he is) pointed out that fact to me recently during a conversation on future goals, amazing plans, business ventures and ultimate world domination involving oceanfront property, beach houses and frosty daiquiris sipped to soft jazz playing in the backgr-…
Sorry. Delusions of grandeur. They get in the way.
Jeff had a good point. People are curious and they like being in the know. So exactly what is going on at Men with Pens these days? Allow me to tell you:
We’ve overhauled, revamped and created a truly extraordinary resource for fiction writers everywhere, and we’ve packaged it up into a very entertaining and useful book called How to Create Believable Characters. You probably didn’t know about this treasure, because I forgot to blog about it. Sorry.
We’re hiring. Yes, the Men with Pens team is in full expansion, and we’re ready to bring new team members into the fold. If you’re interested in learning what kind of person we’re looking for (and possibly becoming that new teammate who’ll rock our socks off), check out the job postings right here. All copywriters and graphic artists welcome.
We’re going to be creating some wicked stuff for you this year, dear readers. You’ve been clamoring and begging for more MwP goodness in the form of books, resources, and courses, and we aim to please. There’s even been talk of audio bandied about, but that discussion happened over a glass of Shiraz and can’t be considered a reliable rumour.
Not that rumours are reliable to begin with, mind you. Onwards.
In an endeavour to win the award for the site that changes its look the most while still looking perfectly familiar, you’ll notice some design and usability tweaks, changes and rollouts over the coming weeks. In short, we’re experimenting. And it’s our site, so we can do that.
We’ll also be experimenting with the blog. What we write, when we write, how we write it and who writes it. Or, maybe we won’t – half of all great ideas (and possibly more) never see the light of day, mostly because they sound great until someone actually realizes there’s work involved.
Your turn: What are you hiding behind the scenes? Any projects you’d like to drop hints about? Go for it; we’re all ears.
Or maybe you have a suggestion for our blog. Why not let us know what you’d like to see around this joint? Our site is here for you as much as it is for us. Want more of this? Less of that? It’s all good. Just drop us a comment and let us know.
