After what has been a wild and crazy-busy few months of deadlines and more work than someone my age should be asked to do, it is all finally coming to a slow close. Tomorrow (Saturday), the fun starts with twenty professional writers showing up to study POD publishing.
I’ve been looking forward to this workshop for three months now. It’s going to be fun, with a lot of talking and ideas and creating cool books.
After that, with luck, things settle down and I will be back at the short story writing challenge. I do have the four online workshops going on, but considering what I have managed these last three months, that’s going to be heaven. And I have another novel deadline for a traditional publisher (yes, I took another) in December, but that one will be easy, maybe ten days of fun writing.
So watch out, I’m almost back. I warned people when I started the short story challenge in July that I should have waited until the end of September because of all the work facing me, but I didn’t want to. I wanted to get going, and honestly I’m glad I did. I got some stories done, some of which will be up here as part of the challenge. And I got six books out in July, eight in August, and it’s looking like another six in September. I’ll talk about the short story as paperback experiment in a couple of months.
Also, I have three different articles in progress for here, one of which is about promotion. But I’m going to wait until after the POD workshop to finish that one and put it up because I have a hunch my views will not be popular with the myth-believers out there.
So stay tuned. I’ll write a couple of posts here this week about things in the POD workshop and what I’m learning.
Wow, it feels great to be almost in October. Sleep is in order as well. (grin)
