Blog Jog Day!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I’m a published short story writer making the transition to aspiring novelist and my blog is a chronicle of my journey, part personal experience and part information-sharing. Please explore all this Blog has to offer, then jog on over to The Orbs of Wonder. If you would like to visit a different Blog in the jog, go to Blog Jog Day.


  1. Good luck with your novel writing, Lisa.

  2. Interesting points of view in your post about choosing markets.

    I always felt behind the eight ball trying to do short stories because "knowing the magazine" meant having to actually buy copies and that got to be expensive when one considered there might be 20 such magazines to explore for prospective submissions.


  3. I have enjoyed reading your posts and would love to continue to follow you as your strive to reach your next goals!
    Good Luck,


  4. Congrats on the shorts. I started out to write a short and ended up with a novel. Keep us informed. Don't forget to stop by my blog, and look around. Then toggle down and vote for your favorite cover.

  5. Glad to meet a fellow writer on Blog Jog Day.

  6. You have an interesting perspective on writing markets. Come check out my blog, WRITING IN THE CROSSHAIRS. I've become a follower, Roland

  7. Best of luck on the contest. I know how it feels to wait on edge to see if you're going to get a contract. I really think your premise sounded interesting and cast a vote for your work. Good luck again and thanks for joining Jog Blog Day.

  8. Hey Lisa,
    I'm sure the transition will be easy for you.
    Thanks for being involved with Blog Jog Day!

  9. Thanks to everyone for stopping by on Blog Jog Day! I'll be looking forward to the next one.

    Thank you also for all the great comments. I'm looking forward to checking out those whose blogs I haven't yet discovered.

    Malcolm, I understand what you mean about knowing the markets getting expensive. Having been immersed in the short fiction markets for so long, I actually have some thoughts on that so you've given me a great idea for a post!

    Holli, thank you SO much for your vote!

  10. Hi, Lisa!

    Congrats on all your writing success. I signed up as a "follower" on your blog and I sure would appreciate a "follow-back" and that you'll visit my blog, "Cynde's Got The Write Stuff" (, too. I have a CONTEST going on where the prize is a $20.00 gift certificate at Amazon.

    It's been nice "meeting" you.

    Have a blessed day!


  11. Thanks so much Cynde. I'm heading over to visit your blog right now!

  12. Lisa, I love the title of your blog. And nice to meet a fellow Hudson Valley resident on this tour!
