IWSG - Got Blog Fog? Call Charlie's Scribes: "You Snooze, We Muse"

Aloha,




 
Yes, it’s IWSG time again, so thanks as always to Alex J. Cavanaugh, aka >>> The Dude in the Black Jammies <<< who founded the Insecure Writers Support Group.

("Yes, hi, everyone. My name is Mark and I'm a Trash Talker..."
"Hi, Mark.")

This month, I'm joining Elizabeth Seckman and Tammy Theriault in a special announcement.

("Take it away, girls, oh, and me, too.")

###

Have you ever mused over your lost muse – and wondered, “Is she coming back?”

Ever needed a break – after yet another epic fail?

Ever felt so blogged down you feel you’re gonna drown?

Ever yearned to relearn that writeous feeling of fingers flying and keyboards smoking? (Or need an extra hour in the week to crack that WIP?)

We may not be professional Hula dancers, but we know what you’re feeling!

 And, by gosh, we are here to help!

Charlie's Scribes is a new (and say it loud and proud, people) FREE service featuring the angelic smiles of Mark Koopmans, Elizabeth Seckman and Tammy Theriault.
The professional women of Charlie’s Scribes (and Mark, too) have only one goal: To fight writer's block, writer’s overload, and the need for some vacay time by filling empty post slots throughout the blogosphere with our charm, wit, and Mark’s Hula skills. You’ll be amazed – or your next post is free!

At Charlie’s Scribes, our motto is “You Snooze, We Muse.” To begin, our free services will focus on guest posting for people on vacation or anyone needing a bloggy break. (E.g. we’ll send over the completed post or polished interview, you schedule and we’ll manage the comments on Post Day and P-Day+1.)

 If you have a need, we can do the deed – with speed.

Charlie’s Scribes are the chocolate to your sweet tooth. We are the filler to the soon-to-be cavity. And best of all, we are the wig to Mark's shiny lovable head.

(If you don’t need us now – that’s okay. Feel free to print this page and pin it to your fridge next to those other emergency contact numbers.)

And now for some awesome fine print in 12-point Times New Roman.

 

·         Meant as a fun, pay-it-forward endeavor, the Scribes will, at first, focus on only one project at a time.

·         Requests are on a first write, first served basis. The more time we have to be funny, the wittier we are. (Mark often requires a ten-year lead-in time.)

·         All Charlie’s Scribes posts will be light, fluffy and non-pasteurized. No meaning of life posts will be considered, written or submitted (for fear of blood seeping from the Scribes’ eyes.)

·         Requests for specific topics are encouraged, but please note who you are dealing with. (Seriously!)

·         Should the Scribes continue to get along (and not have a strong, adverse desire to build a voodoo doll of other Scribes,) co-hosted Cover Reveals/ Book Launches and more free services may be added.

·         Question? Suggestions? Please reply via comments and one of the Scribes will reply within 364 business days.

·         The Request Line for Charlie’s Scribes help is now OPEN and all requests should be made to charliesscribes@gmail.com

Oh, you are sent from heaven I tell you! Come to my blog anytime. Specifically, I'll be away in March and in April, so if I need to book you, consider this a booking request. :) I would love posts on anything related to spec fic (so reviews (inc books, movies, TV), publishing news, or anything related in some way to those things - like awesome authors/offers, recommendations. :)

Voodoo doll of the other scribes - hilarious! Hope you can all just get along.
Rather wear black jammies than my wife's puke-green sheets.

Cathrina Constantine said...

Haha, I like. Great idea.

M.J. Fifield said...

Oh, I love this idea. And what a terrific team you've assembled, Charlie!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Oooooooh, I love this!

I seriously have to take you up on this. In April, I will have a book launch coming up (with guest posts of my own to write) AND a deadline to turn in my third book in the series (which I haven't finished writing the first draft of yet).

Sign me up for April!

Silly trio. You're making me laugh already. Say, can you pay a visit and get some chocolate stains off of my keyboard? I'll wait 10 years. Thanks in advance.

Voodoo dolls! That would be funny. I want to make an appointment for voodoo dolls training for my dwarves, please. I know they would love it.

cleemckenzie said...

Great idea. I'd love a break if someone like these gals took it over.

Melissa said...

Pardon me while I press a dripping, sweating glass of southern iced tea to my flushed cheek. All this talk of need, deeds, and speed got me a little flustered.

:P

I absolutely LOVE this idea. I will definitely have to let you guys take over my blog at some point. :D

IWSG #298
(Yup. I got culled and had to start all over. *blush*)

Robin said...

Love this! Everyone takes a vacation (or should) and doesn't want their blog to just sit there decaying. You are all Angels. I mean, Scribes!

Morgan said...

Oh. My. Gosh...

Dyyyyyyying...

This is brilliant. Bloody brilliant. (Apparently so brilliant I just became British! )

Love it. Love you guys. Love the pic. :)

Elizabeth Seckman said...

What an awesome idea! Sign me up!

Hardy har har

Tara said...

This is so full of awesome. I love it!

LD Masterson said...

Fantastic idea. Now, about that shirt...

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Oh yeah this is amazing. Definitely interested in trying this out one day. Can't wait to see who you'll help.

---Greetings from a February IWSG Cohost.

klahanie said...

Sir Mazza,

What's happening? Indeed and can I take any more compliments, it's "IWSG" aka "I Was Seeking Gary", time. Thank you so much, kind sir :)

I have never mused over a lost muse. A thoughtful offer. However, when I need a break, which should be often, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar takes over.

Wish you well in helping bloggers with blogger's block. I don't know what that is. After all, if you start typing about having blogger's block, you don't have blogger's block :)

And cause I'm so nice n'stuff, I shall go to Tammy's site and leave a vague comment. She loves that. Then I shall go to Elizabeth's site and mention grass skirts, she loves that :)

Cheerio, old bean.

Gary :)

Patrick Stahl said...

This is very admirable of you (plural). I'll try my best to remember this in the future.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

You guys just made my angels list. Terrific idea. You'll be hearing from me.

Nicki Elson said...

I LOVE this! So clever and fun. And really, really appreciated. I've got you on my speed dial. ;)

Michelle Wallace said...

Excellent idea. What a line up! You guys are going to rock!

Donna Hole said...

Oh man, my blog could sure use some light and fluffy posts about now. This sounds like a lot of fun.

........dhole

Meradeth Houston said...

Love this idea! You all are going to rock this :) And I'll be in touch when I need some fun stuff!!

BECKY said...

This is REALLY funny to me because I just saw this on Elizabeth's blog and thought it was something you'd been doing for a long time! I just sent an e-mail to your scribes address, too. PLEASE take pity on me!!

Misha Gericke said...

This is a wonderful idea! I hope it's a huge success. :-)

Stephen Tremp said...

What a very cool service! I'll keep you in mind should I accidently slip on a banana peel and fall into a rogue woemhole. Its hard to find a good connection deep in the vortex of a wormhole, you know.

Kimberly said...

Oh my goodness, you all are cracking me up and I love it! I might need these services. Such a cool idea!

readfaced said...

Oh Mark, That is just the greatest idea. You lot are amazing.

Leanne Ross ( readfaced.wordpress.com & @LeanneRossRF )

Suzi said...

What a great idea! You guys are so cool. I wish I'd thought of that. Well except that I can't even keep up with my own posts, so I definitely couldn't offer to do other peoples. :)

Julie Musil said...

Wow, you guys are amazing!!! I laughed out loud at the 10 year lead time for funny.

Susanne Drazic said...

What a cool idea. I'd definitely welcome a guest post or two on my blog. : )

M. L. Swift said...

I had to make sure to tell the three of you what an outstanding idea! And hilarious promo.

You're too cool. The whole lot of yas.

M.L. Swift, Writer

Trisha F said...

Just saw this on Tammy's blog as well. Noice work!! :D

~Sia McKye~ said...

I love it. I'm so fine with fluff and fun. Keeps blogs from being deadly dull to mix it up. I may be hitting you guys up for a few blog posts soon.

Sia McKye Over Coffee

Nicole said...

Oooh! *stretches fingers in evil pondering and considers calendar for next blogging break* Awesome offerings, guys! I'm sure I'll be taking you up on it in the near future.
