Back in 2008, a small company was started. It was started to meet a very specific need, namely to keep food on my family’s table, and a roof over our head. I had been laid off, yet again, and with mortgages, skyrocketing bills, and no prospects in sight, I knew that something had to change.
I had to change.
So The Writers Thread, in all its glory (trust me, there wasn’t much glory) was born. I used my love and passion for writing and editing and slowly built a valued business that not only helped to sustain my family and me through some rough economic times but also gave us the chance to rediscover the idea of “what if” once again.
Over the next ten years, I worked with some great clients, some I probably should have stayed away from in the long run, and grew in both my sense of business and my sense of self. It got to the point that in 2017 I knew that if I didn’t expand my horizons and take on new challenges, and new help that I would be stuck where I was.
And there was no way that I would let that happen.
So enter the Team, and the successful expansion of The Writers Thread to not only include writing and editing but design services as well. True, the company has gone through some growing pains and had a few false starts and missteps along the way, but for the most part, we’ve done remarkably well.
And I have the team of Walter Brown, Ailsa Rose, Tom Nyarunda, Hailey Popovich, and Michael Seeber to thank for that.
So what does the future hold for The Writers Thread? Where do we go from here? Well, simply put, some things will remain the same. Such as our commitment to the business, doing quality work, and making sure our clients get the best that we can give. But like all businesses, if you don’t evolve and adjust your plans, you’ll never get anywhere.
So Writers Thread is evolving yet again, especially where our website is concerned. As we speak, our team member of Alisa Rose is putting together a new website that offers quite a few new features that are specifically designed to make it easier to build a more secure, user-friendly experience for our clients. One where collaboration between the clients and the team is streamlined and designed to make sure that everything works well.
I don’t want to go into too many details since I don’t like counting my chickens before they hatch, but let me promise you. The changes will be awesome.
One change that I can tell you about that will be coming in 2019 is the fact that our fiction section, The Writers Thread Showcase, as well as my published books, will be finding a new home. Don’t worry, they’re not going far. I’ve just made the decision that the great fiction, including our upcoming anthology, would be better served under their own banner and company.
One that is truly devoted to the magic of the written word.
So as things progress, expect to see a few changes around here. But don’t worry. One of the things that will never change is the commitment to making sure the magic of the written word (and design) works for you.
