A Time to Pause and Celebrate

Not so long ago, I used to participate in a blog fest every other Friday. It was Life List Friday. A group of writers known as The Life List Club would exchange guest posts with each other. The mission of the Club is to encourage its members to create a Life List, share it, and cheer each other on as they achieve the goals on their Life List.



That Was Then. This Is Now.
Things have changed since then. The Club is still here but we are no longer a scattered bunch swapping guest posts. Under the fearless leadership of Marcia Richards and the vision of Jess Witkins, the Life List Club now has its own blog to promote the membership and showcase their writing. Our readership is growing and the blog makes it easier for our readers to keep up with us.

We Have Reason to Celebrate.
Today is a special day for two reasons. First, it’s our regularly-scheduled Milestone Party where we assess our goals, lament our shortcomings and celebrate each other’s triumphs. Second, it’s the Club’s One Year Anniversary. Sherry Isaac was kind enough to prepare and post an interview of the membership. It’s a flash summary of what each of us has been up to and there are links to each writer’s page so you easily can follow along.

My dear friends and fellow Life Listers, Sonia G. Medeiros and Lara Schiffbauer are also celebrating with us today. Stop by and say hello to each member. You may end up winning a prize for simply saying hello.

Our Readers Are a Big Part of It.
We appreciate the comments and feedback that our readers share on our posts. In large part, it goes towards making our efforts worthwhile. To show our appreciation, the Club is sponsoring a $50 Amazon gift certificate for one lucky guest poster. There are other prizes you can win on the other member's blogs as well.

One poster on this blog will win a $10 Amazon Gift Card.

The comments must be received between 6 AM (EST) June 29th and midnight (EST) July 5th.

All the the winners will be announced on Friday, July 6th at LLC and the writers’ blogs.

  2. Hey, Gary! The LLC is so lucky to have you! Everybody is saying they love your inspirational posts and I agree! We have a great group and I hope more will join us. One thing I know for sure, the contributing writers at LLC can relate to ALL of our readers--whether it be success, procrastination, adjusting goals, ripping up one list to begin another -- whatever, at least one of has done it!
    Wishing you all the best on the coming year of reaching for goals!

    1. Hi Marcia, Thanks for the vote of support and the good wishes. I'm glad some like my posts. Most times, I'm not trying to be inspirational, it just ends up that that way.

  3. How's the WIP going Gary? Hope you've been able to give all those great tips and tricks you write about some practice at home too! Keep us posted!

    1. Hi Jess, always nice to hear from you. All the how-to stuff is easier said than done! My WIP is coming along but certainly not as fast as I'd like. I think I need to add another item to my Life List along these lines. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. I stopped by the LLC's blog earlier today. It sounds like this year has been a good journey for all of you. Congratulations to each of you for goals you have met. Glad to hear your own WIP is going well.

  5. Thanks for the visit, Elizabeth. I'm making steady progress on the WIP but it needs a little more attention from me. I've been devoting a lot of time to the project we spoke about in the interview.
