Watch This Space

 Attention: Our attempt to go live Monday failed due to  a delay in the transfer of domain name to our new host.  Meet the new host, same as the old host…  In any event, we’re doing all we can to speed our comeback.  Please keep trying.  I have been “assured” that the worst possible case will be Saturday the 23rd.
Since popping into existence on or about the 25th of January, 2010
, Uphill Writing has gone through several changes.  Now—fasten your seatbelts—we’re about to go through a total remake, remodel.  None of what you come to UhW for now will be lost, and we will continue writing about writing, issuing challenges, and saying things designed to provoke, but we’ll be adding so much more.

Look for UhW to be a clearing house for writing resources, opportunities, news, reviews, and all things writing.  Look for the latest on contests, how to enter, and what it takes to win. 

This will be more than just a facelift, it is our intention to give you as much support as possible, because we believe there is no need for you to be Writing without a net.

NOTE: WE WILL NOT BE CLOSING DOWN, BUT WE DO NOT EXPECT TO BE PUBLISHING NEW POSTS FOR AS MUCH AS A WEEK.  WATCH FOR US TO BE BACK SOON!

  1. I wait with bated breath, Rik. Show us what you’ve got!

  2. I’m with aard’ You always ‘go the extra mile’.

  3. Let’s see, it’s been a few months since a makeover – you are totally due. Just kidding, can’t wait to see the new look.

  4. Have fun with the Construction!

  5. Sounds like it will be a place writers will want to visit often.

  6. Just StumbledUpon this. From a list of quotes on writing. Really a lot of fun. But I’ll be glad when you back! Looking forward to the tips and traps. When will it be? Today? Anyway, here’s the ‘provocative’ quote:

    “Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.” Cyril Connolly

    (It reminds me of Pascal’s wager on whether or not there is a God! grin grin An either-or doesn’t always work for me.)

  7. Hi, Loreen. Thanks for stopping by.
    I’ve been on the phone with the two hosts involved in my transfer daily, and everybody points to someone else, and lately they’re both pointing to an entity which is shrounded in darkness: Tucows. Tucows actually held the domain name UphillWriting.org, but was supposed to release it. They are a minion of the dark because it is not possible to reach them in anyway. No email, no phone.
    The latest is that the transfer will “automagically” take place sometime tomorrow. I sure hope so. I’ve missed UphillWriting, and am looking very much forward to the new version to be made available.

  8. I’m sure we all look forward to having your Blog Back. A new version. A new beginning. All the best.
