First, a quick update:
I am finally finished with the difficult, months-long process of selecting the essays that will best shape What a Woman is Worth into the book I hope it will be– one that will both open people’s eyes to so many ways women are caused to disbelieve their own worth and offer inspiring messages of restoration and affirmation.
We had an incredible turn-out, and in order to make the book a manageable size, I was only able to accept less than half of the submissions. The thirty essays that will comprise the book come from a wide range of authors– from gifted, veteran writers to women who wouldn’t call themselves writers at all but who simply had stories that needed sharing.
So after just a very quick breath and a little celebratory fist pump, the editing phase of my job began. I’ll continue to be busy working with the authors over the next several weeks to get their essays into their very best form, and I’ll also be writing the section introductions to weave this whole project together.
And that doesn’t leave me with a whole lot of time for much else. So, as they have for several months, guest posts will be essential to keeping this show running for a bit longer. I hope you’ll continue to be generous with your comments and clicks for the people who are kind enough to fill in for me here.
And now, for some fun:
My friend Tyler Tarver made my Killer Tribes video for me, and, because there’s no end to his generosity or wit, he also made me one of his trademark to-do lists, personalized just for my busy life. Sort of.
