For over a decade, the name ChickLitGurrl has been a part of my life.
Originally, the name came from this simple thought: I am a girl who loves literature by chicks.
For most of my life, before and after the creation of the name, this has been true.
It was only appropriate that now, as people see the name and think of Shonell Bacon, that I would finally come home to the name, create a site, and try to blend all the things that make me, me into one digital home space.
That is what ChickLitGurrl.com will attempt to do.
On the site, you will learn about the various aspects of my life, my worlds as author, crafter, editor, and educator.
You will be able to buy books I write, crafts I create, editorial services, webinar courses, and more.
You will be able to read blog posts about my goings on, editing and writing tips, celebrating women, and more!
Below are the blog series you will regularly experience.
Once a month with Rock the Tiara, I will feature a woman who is living her passion by any means necessary. You’ll learn about her, her life, her passion, and what she’s learned along the way–and perhaps we can glean some good info from her and make her journey that much more successful!
Every day, we are making things. We are making our bodies, minds, and spirits better; we are making stories and art and movies and crafts; we are making our lives–from home to work–better. On Making Mondays, I blog on the various ways in which I make.
On Wednesday’s WORD, I will share stories about my faith and tips and thoughts on writing–including my personal writing journey.
Sometimes, you just have to let loose. Things happen in the world that make you feel, and you have to release those feelings. In Bacon Bits posts, you can see posts on current events, faith, humor, tragedies, love, and literally every and anything.
Here on ChickLitGurrl, I share my journey.
Come join me.
About Head Chica in Charge of ChickLitGurrl: Shonell Bacon
Author. Blogger. Coffee/Tea Addict. Crafter. Editor. Educator. Writing Coach.
A Jacqueline of all trades and a mistress of some, Shonell Bacon’s primary goals are to educate, entertain, and excite.
As an author, Shonell’s women’s fiction, mysteries, and rom-coms leave readers satiated and hungry for more. At the heart of everything she writes creatively readers will find broken women made strong through their determination and actions.
Shonell’s love of the written word moved her to not only take on the task of editor in 1999, but it also pushed her to pursue her MFA in Creative Writing (fiction) in 2001. Since then, she has helped 100s of writers develop their writing craft through her editing services, articles, and online projects, like Writing Boot Camp. The result, which Shonell loves, is seeing her clients excited to write that phenomenal next book.
Shonell’s desire to help develop strong writers fuses with the work she has done as an educator of English (Developmental Writing, English Composition, Advanced Grammar), mass communication (Writing for the Media, Emerging Media Practices, etc.), and creative writing at the university level.
