Hi all,

I just wanted to blurt. ;) For our newer and, perhaps, some of our older readers and inkslingers, if you haven't taken the time to go look at Litdotorg's monthly newsletter 'Majestic' - you should. Stuart has done an incredible job of juggling a large number of projects and 'Majestic' is certainly a worthy one - indeed. I say that not because I write a column there, but because these amazing others do.

All the columnists are posting writers on Litdotorg and have all used this site to further their writing skills. The columnists on 'Majestic' are:

Karma Tsering Lhamo: 'Exposed' a wonderful and revealing look at writers and poets here on Litdotorg. She is a master at offering well thought out ,personal, and uncomfortable questions. Always terrific.

Linnie Red: On humor.Probably one of the funniest writers out there and she hasn't gotten how good she really is.

Ócháni Lele: Our committed and inspiring Boss. This is the last month he will be the editor for Majestic. He will be concentrating on the new magazine - 'Four Seasons'

Sandra Yuen MacKay: A brilliantly lucid and adroit writer shares her 'Musings' column - always interesting and enjoyable. Sandra will ,no doubt, skillfully take over as the editor for 'Majestic' next month.

Steven Cherecwich: A sharp mind examining the world of 'Graphic Novels'. I have learned and found myself intriguer by this modern medium. How in the world can I guy hold that much insight in his head? It must hurt.

Beckett Grey: If you haven't taken the time to read his story postings - you are missing a treat. He is one of my favorite writers and I pray that his work will soon be on book store shelves, so that I may have the honor of owning one of his books, and the bragging rights, to say that I knew him when. Just go read this brainy and imaginative writer's column. You will be enriched.

Ken Lehnig/Jonpenny: And then there is me ,the vagabond raconteur. A ramshackle raddle of rambling and ruminations on Poetry and lyrics. But mostly about you'll. I pick out and highlight great poems and lyrics from the posters on Litdotorg. I also comment and post the participants in the monthly 'Song Challenge' - so climb on.

Just go to the blue column to the right of the home page. You will see 'Majestic' click on it and you will be sent to the "Majestic' pages. Enjoy!

Bless you all.

Why is doing what you love the hardest thing to do? Is it because failing what you thought defined you would be too devastating a thing from which to recover? If so, we stay where mere accident has left us.

@ jonpenny
Thanks for the kind words for everyone, and good thinking for mentioning Majestic here on the front page. Also...a ramshackle raddle of rambling and ruinations? Better be careful, Ken, or they'll take away your alliteration license ;)

Thanks again!

Wow! Great PR!

If I must say, I think Majestic rocks! Thanks for posting, everyone!

Initial thoughts, not another on-line mag for writers, been there on other sites and not been captivated and my time's precious!
Anyhow they even advertise it in the blue right hand column as a Montly Newsletter, so does it deserve a read if they can't even get the wording of the link right?

Because of persistant pressure from some of the writers who I respect (as in this post) I decided I needed to at least take a look, and get rid of my guilt complex as I seldom comment on their work (mainly because I feel unqualified to do so or my simple brain seems to only accept rhyme)


This Newsletter grabbed me from the start and wouldn't let go. The columnist speak in a language that even I can understand and the topics covered are interesting to say the least!

Be warned though, the book review has already cost me money and if there are any more reviews of this nature I will have to start missing this section in order to save money.

May I thank and congratulate all the people involved in this and become one of those pushy people who insist if you haven't been there yet you are missing out....

Ivor - oops;-) re: MAJESTIC
I mentioned it to Stuart, and he said he will be fixing that misspelling as soon as his schedule allows sometime tomorrow. Thank you for pointing that out. I never noticed it until you pointed it out, and Stuart has been so very busy these days (his publisher has kept him busy).. so this little typo flew past him too... the way, it is thanks to Stuart and our great writers here that MAJESTIC has been revamped again, and it is a great link and one heck of a good read with a little something for everybody.

As far as a REAL MAGAZINE goes; Stuart is currently working on a Lit.Org, the real life in the physical print magazine by subscription mailed snail mail or picked up at your local magazine stand, it is going to be called "Lit.Org's FOUR SEASONS", a quarterly magazine, Stuart says he has had many submissions thus far and it should get off to a great start. That will be our real magazine, the MAJESTIC truly is our monthly newsletter, but it is one heck of a good one thanks to all the talented columnists involved (myself excluded-I have no talent, but I always manage to get great writers/poets here who allow me to interview them, they do all the work, all I do is ask the questions;-)

Thanks for reading:

If you've not read it lately, you have been missing out and you should be ashamed of yourself. Its chock full of great insight and entertaing looks into the writing world and its just a click away.

Run, don't walk and check it out!

about Majestic
Thanks to you all for posting your thoughts. So we are left with one conclusion. Go read
'Majestic' You will like it! Besides, it is posted 'Montly' and that makes it special. ;)
Bless you all.

"Montly IS Special"
Lol, JonPenny...Stuart says he will get to it, but you know, he is swamped with emails and demands from his publisher. In the meanwhile, we can enjoy reading the full monty of our MAJESTIC cause it is very very very montly, it is HUGE and filled with talent of columnists such as yourself and others! hehehehee!

Our Montly newsletter!
Hi Guys!

I'm a techo-hack at best . . . and it takes me a bit of effort to actually get in and make changes. Right now I'm so overwhelmed I can't see straight. My publisher only gave me 2 weeks to write 14 new pages off material and rewrites on the 25 page introduction; work is taking up 60 to 72 hours a week of my time; I'm editing material for "Four Seasons" (it goes to the design editor in less than 2 weeks); and, I'm planning my PERSONAL magazine: Odu -- A Journal of the Lucumi Faith.

As soon as I get a free day, I will get in and redo that bit of code. I promise!

In the meantime -- it all adds to our rustic charm! And I'm so glad everyone is enjoying it.

Ivor -- thanks so much for the kind words. Everyone has worked so hard. And under Sandra's leadership, I'm sure the newsletter will get better!

Now, I'm off to take care of sick people.

thanks Ochani
Thanks Ochani. I hope you can meet all those deadlines!


( Posted by: sandra [Member] On: December 17, 2009 )

@ Ochani
"I'm editing material for "Four Seasons" (it goes to the design editor in less than 2 weeks)"

Does that mean that anyone who hasn't heard from you by now should assume their work won't be in it?

( Posted by: Beckett Grey [Member] On: December 17, 2009 )

@ Beckett
I'll be contacting people via email in the next week or so as well!

Don't worry -- you're in it! Everyone else will just have to wait a bit.

I'm SERIOUSLY overworked!


PS: Did I mention I'm going back to college for my BSN yet? Classes start January 11th!

( Posted by: OchaniLele [Member] On: December 18, 2009 )

As I leave "Majestic," a new writer joins! But to find out who that writer is, and what he's writing, you'll have to wait until the January 1st issue.

Sandra will be letting everyone in on the secret then!


PS: Sandra -- I need to email you directions on how to validate the newsletter so things appear in order, don't I? Email me privately to remind me to type out directions for you!

( Posted by: OchaniLele [Member] On: December 18, 2009 )

@Ochani and Beckett
For those others of us that submitted work for "Four Seasons", does this mean that if we didn't make for this issue, perhaps we could work on some editing for our submission and possible resubmitt it for the next issue? I only ask because it looks like we wouldn't have time for this issue.

(Beckett: I told you that you had nothing to worry about!!!!! ;)
