The Mentor Ship, positivity passes, and other writing shenanigans
Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a great week so far. Here in Nova Scotia it's finally sunny, so I'm just getting ready to go out and enjoy the weather. However, first I thought it would be helpful for some of my readers to get a quick update with respect to some of the programs I'm starting to offer on Wattpad.
The first program is called The Positivity Pass! The purpose of this program is to encourage and support authors at all stages of their writing by providing a positive review of their story and its fundamental aspects. I truly believe that there's something positive to say about basically every piece of creative content made on this site, and I'm determined to find it! Whether it be your creative use of language or pretty descriptions, The Positivity Pass is a review book aimed at helping you grow and learn and love the passion of writing.
The second program is The Mentor Ship! The purpose of this program is to encourage and support authors at all stages of their writing by providing a positive, safe place to work on their stories with an experienced mentor.
I'm sure you've noticed a bit of a theme: encouragement and support. One of my favorite things is helping new and old writers alike hone their craft and love of writing, and through Wattpad (and the use of Google Docs), I'm able to offer this service to a few individuals. If you're on Wattpad, I really hope to see you apply for one of these programs. PP runs on a weekly basis, updating on Sundays along with this blog, while TMS will run sporadically every few months as I have capacity.
To those of you who tune in to my Instagram (@alexashleybooks), you may have heard me talk about my newest three projects over the last few days - "the water anthology", The Stars From Me to You, and "the New Year's Eve anthology". The first one is now done and submitted to the publisher which is really exciting, and I sure hope they like it because it totally went in a direction I was not anticipating! Now I have the other two to check off my list. TSFMtY is available on Wattpad now with the first couple of chapters, with the other anthology entry on the sidelines until I have an idea.
Finally, I've posted A Darkness of Wolves to Swoon Reads! I'd love to see your support over on that site as well with a vote or a comment (or both!) to help me gain traction and visibility on that platform. This is a real opportunity for me to get published with my dream house, so I'd really appreciate all the attention you guys are able to give.
That's all I have for today, but please note the following:
Beauty and the Book comparison product updates will be on Sundays.
General writing updates will be on Thursdays.
If you like the blog, please consider becoming a member of the email list so you can be the first to hear about new announcements!
All my love,
