Countdown to launch

August 26, 2009 at 9:22 pm

If you’re wondering about the daily struggle of living with cystic fibrosis, here is another blog for you to check out. I’m going to add some of these CF blogs I’ve found to our list of links. I hope reading something about the reality a person with CF faces every day will inspire you to work a bit harder to reach your goals in the next few weeks.

And speaking of inspiration, we have  a great line-up of guest bloggers who will be talking about reading and writing. Writers include, aspiring author Jessica Scott who is currently serving with the U.S. Army in Iraq where she has managed to keep writing. New York Times bestselling author, Angie Fox will talk about writing with young children in the house.

We also have some super-readers lined up. Besides our Pacesetter, Michelle Buonfiglio, we also have Smart Bitch Sarah from Smart Bitches Trashy Books and Super Librarian Wendy Crutcher.

Wendy Crutcher’s post will appear tomorrow, August 27. Please stay tuned. To be sure you don’t miss any of these wonderful posts, we have two options for you. Look on the sidebar to the right for links to “Subscribe to Unleash Your Story Make a Difference by E-mail” or  subscribe to the RSS feed.

Hope you’re about ready to start writing, reading or both. Launch is just five days away!
