The Big Shake-Up & A Fresh Start
I've decided to really shake things up here at The Next Chapter: The Happy Book edition and I'm excited about where it's taking us!
As of today, everyone who would like to can join us in playing through The Happy Book by Rachel Kempster and Meg Leder! Every Friday I'll pick a random page in the book and that will provide our focus for the week (Thanks for that great idea, Helen!) Then in true Next Chapter tradition, on Fridays we will share our thoughts and experiences on our blogs, using the Mr. Linky (just as you see below) to add a direct link to your post so that we can all visit one another.
The Big Next Chapter Shake-Up
(Now, really that should be a dance move!)
- For Everyone Who Would Like to Play! Everyone is welcome to join us in working through The Happy Book starting today! If you are a new participant (i.e. not in the mail-around), please sign up using the form in the upper left-hand corner. Even though it may take you some time to get the book, in the video I explain what you can do, starting today. (Mail-around folks, you do not have to sign up again. New people, please do)
- For the Mail-Around Circles: If you are already signed up for The Happy Book Mail-Around, you should have received an email from me asking that you reconfirm your interest in participating. For reasons explained in the email and video, you must confirm by September 7th in order to stay in the mail-around circle. (I think I say the 3rd in the video but I said the 7th in writing, so the 7th it is!)
- For the Mail-Around Circles: The first circle to get their book back to me will win Your Creative Spark. Yep, every single person in the circle!
Next Friday: We'll share the results of our first assignment (I give the details in the video). I have been smiling about this one since I opened the book and saw what we were doing. This one is a beauty!
New to the Next Chapter? If this is all sounding a bit confusing or if you have any questions at all, check out the FAQ. If you're still stumped, please leave your question in the comments. That way I can answer and clear it up for anyone that might be wondering the same thing.
Okay, this is feeling better already! Sometimes it's good to shake things up. I'm so excited to play our way through this delight-full book and connect with all you awesome people while our four Happy Books continue their world travels!
