I have decided to turn "Excerpt Vlog Fridays" into

Movie Monday!

(See the resemblance?)

This is the first time in my life I've been a writer/full-time worker/student/querier/critter/blogger/twitterer/friend/girlfriend/pet owner at the same time, so bear with me as I sort out a proper schedule.

Excerpts will remain the same, except I hope to have Hollywood funding sometime in the future.

The current (tentative) schedule is:

Jean Davis - February 7
Ellie Garratt - February 14
Mysti Parker - February 28
Donna Hole - March 7
Liz Fichera - March 14

And you?

For newcomers, the idea of an "excerpt vlog" is to submit 250-500 words of one of your writing projects, and I'll turn it into a mini-film. Sometimes costumes and accents are involved. So please join in the fun and submit to:

esolodow at gmail dot com

I look forward to excerpting.

I also want to point your attention to Fiction Mingle, an awesome site that combines a photo, 100 words, and an audio sample to create the ultimate creative experience!

I submitted 100 words for their Valentine's Day special, which should be up sometime today. Keep an eye out.
