I plan to post more, have more contests and use EC a bit more as a blog as well as a zine. I ran the blog Diamonds and Toads for years, and miss the joys of regular blogging. I miss visiting other great blogs and commenting. I miss looking for art on a regular basis. I miss the great community of fairy tale lovers that thrives online.
Enchanted Conversation will continue to hold monthly writing contests. That is not changing. And prizes will remain small. The changes in my life will not include having more money. But there will be some more giveaways.
You will also see some new features here involving fairy tales and food and fairy tales and the home. These posts will be an effort to bring the other side of my writing to the fairy tale side. For more years than I care to count, I have been writing about food and home care issues. I actually get paid to do it! The articles currently only appear in a weekly newspaper popular with the Amish and Mennonites, but I get a real pleasure out of the job. So, from time to time, you will find a recipe from Cinderella or a home keeping tip from, hhhmmm, maybe Cinderella.
No matter what, the mission and tone of EC will remain the same. Thank you for sticking with Enchanted Conversation. Let's make some more magic!
