Glad tidings, Member Writers!
We are looking to kick up our efforts into the next few months, in a few interesting ways:
OMTimes is looking for fresh, new, cutting-edge, change-related material and topics. I'm not sure if you have noticed on your end, but a good bit of our articles lately have become "how to" articles that tick off a handful (or two) of 'easy steps.'
In this time of major growth and change, we grow with challenges and contrasts before us, not by resting on what is 'easy.' While the 'state of OM' is one of presence and consciousness, and there is certainly plenty to be found in this state, as leaders in the conscious topics, we must forge ahead.
A forge is home to the fire element...as are the months ahead, filled with increased warmth, greater Sun, a time of growth, maturity, and passionate ACTIVITY. We SEE more of us DOing...everything. Our articles need to reflect these new and changing activities that have a wide and conscious reach.
Remember, too, the multimedia abilities of OMTimes and our ability to reach a receptive audience all around the world. Also know that these plans are to prepare materials AS WELL AS AUTHORS for the TED talks. Our material needs to be focused on quality work that reaches into the hearts and minds of our audience. Content editors will not only welcome articles, we will also be very selective and particular about moving OMTimes into the next phases of audio, multimedia presentations (TED), and beyond.
Think of the ways our being here, as both witnesses and catalysts to these changing times, may be an aid to others. It really goes beyond just getting the next article out with 'easy steps' and calling it done. Our writing, and mindful use of words needs to elicit the participation and continued growth of our audience, in more ways than one.
Maybe it will be up to the Spotlight Writers to double our efforts; maybe we will have to brainstorm in the content groups a bit about where we all are heading; maybe it will require digging deep into our own interests and bringing them into the forefront? These are offered as possibilities because our universe has possibilities in abundance.
What we all must be is totally committed to quality. Those who are shine brightly in the pages of OMTimes and within our unique community. It is not up to any of us to single out a particular person or group who does not consider themselves worthy of being counted among the OMTimes family. All are welcome and included, and those who are not happy here? Well, we do have an open door that works well in both directions.
Know that we are all being called to greatness and I am grateful to participate with every OMTimes contributor! The time of Fire is at hand, and we are being vulcanized to ready our efforts for these next levels of our journey together. Stay tuned to continued ~ Blessings ~ from our combined energies.
Great timing Kathy, I had been thinking for the last few weeks about writing on Change Makers. As I opened up your suggestion and proposed direction to the Writers Community I got the confirmation I was looking for. Thanks! Courtney.
Thanks, Courtney--they say that nature or the universe provides things in just the right time. Always glad to play a small part in that. We will be having a general writer conference call again soon, and I hope you will be able to join in. Happy Passover and Easter Weekend to you ~ Blessings! :)
Awesome ! I look forward to a continued working relationship with OMTimes Magazine. I am not afraid of the Fire! Like the Mother of Dragons...I will bravely walk through it.
I think your vision for an enhanced version of OMTimes is spot on. It seems that everyone "out there" in cyber space is writing "how to "articles. I welcome the opportunity to write and submit deep, thought provoking, and conscious articles that reach into the hearts, and minds of our readers.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with OMTimes.
