PROMO OP: Guest Blogging!

We Wild Women will be hosting a guest blogger on this blog each Monday, beginning soon!

If you're interested in being a guest on our blog, please feel free to choose a couple of
open dates (in case your first choice is taken) and send us an email with your dates and a subject, if you know one.

The only thing we ask is that the post is actually about something. It can be about nearly anything at all, we're not terrifically picky, but ... we'd like it to have a subject.

Friday: or How to Face the Weekend

Good Friday morning, all. I kinda introduced myself yesterday, but since today is my first "official" blogging day, you get to know a little something about me.

I am an erotic romance writer. One of my favorite writers has referred to erotic romance as "porn with a plot." I like that. Erotic romance is definitely hot, steamy, erotic, "make you cream your jeans" kinda writing...if it's done well. And, there's a wonderful story you can get behind.

My own writing is set mostly in a mystical world, where shapeshifters have only in the last several years been franchised as citizens, where Ravenhart is a night to be feared, where people and shifters together fight for right against the foe. I do occasionally foray into this world...I'm working on something called "Steel Erections" right now... but my first love is worldbuilding. I expect you will hear more than you want of my world. :-)

But.. facing the weekend is what we want to talk about. For some people, the weekend provides a nice respite from the tedium that is daily life. For others, it provides chaos in an otherwise scheduled and orderly world. And, for even others, the weekend's are days just like any other.

What do you do to "face the weekend"? Do you plan a party to celebrate that, once again, TGIF? Do you grit your teeth because people will be home and throwing the proverbial wrench into your carefully laid out plans and schedules? Or do you look around and the only reason you know it's not a weekday is because you can't find the soaps on?
