Store and Workshop

Store and Workshop

Another full day at WMG offices (part of which will soon be our new store). I worked on one of the new workshops as well as did a bunch of stuff in the store. Got the second temporary sign hung outside, got some final trim work done, did a lot of work on all the die cast cars.

And then spent the evening sorting through and getting some non-sports cards ready. (They are art cards mostly. But we have a lot of Trek, Star Wars, X-Files and other cards. We have one area of the store that is nothing but non-sport cards.

And dug out some old games. Eventually this store will also have a modern game section, but at the moment just some older games and a ton of clocks.  Walking down the aisle with all the clocks on both sides is kind of creepy, actually.

Tomorrow I hope to have a new topic of the night.

Looks like we are going to pull off this first phase of catching up. Now I just need to get back to writing next week for the second phase.

Sunday Fun

Fun Sunday

It was a fun day today. The writers meeting up at the WMG offices was fun and lasted until five, then I worked in my office on workshop stuff, then in the store. I alternated going from my office to the store until around midnight.

I will have pictures of the new store in just over a week when we open.

Free Originality Workshop Now Here

As I have been working to get some changes done here, one thing I added was a way to watch the YouTube videos here. I put them under the YouTube tab above and then each week of the Originality workshop on a sub-page. So you can go through the workshop in a similar fashion as when it was offered originally.

We got if figured out for starting the catching up of Smith’s Monthly through WMG. One issue will go out electronically on Monday, a second issue on Friday, and a third issue on the following Monday.

Got the proof on the first paper one a couple days ago. The new system seems to be working if I can get back to the writing at pace. Sort of distracted by the store opening in just over a week.

Topic of the Night: Can’t vs Don’t

Tonight I sorted through a few thousand watches. Yes, we also will sell watches in the new store. $2.00 each, as is… The twenty Mickey Mouse watches and the Star Wars watches I found will sell for a little more. (grin)

It is flat stunning how much stuff I have.

Changes to Anthology Workshop

Changes to Anthology Workshop

We have a brand new major anthology series launching in 2017 from WMG Publishing, so we made some changes to the anthology workshop. That major new series will have stories bought at the workshop as well as our ongoing Fiction River anthology series.

And we have a moderately new cast of editors since we wanted to change up things after three years with the same gang. The writers attending were starting to get us all figured out. (grin)

So if you were signed up for the Anthology workshop, you should have gotten a letter from me tonight. If you are interested in attending the workshop in late Feb and early March, the information is under the Coast Workshops tab above. Write me if you have questions.

I discovered there were two spots open as I was going through and sending out letters. Seems I had signed up two people twice. Ahh, well, a good time to catch that ten months ahead of the workshop. (grin)

Entire Originality Workshop Now On YouTube

Originality Workshop Completely On YouTube

All six weeks plus most assignments and responses to the assignments are now on YouTube.

The hope is that the word will start getting out about these online workshops a little bit. We limit them to just five writers per workshop each month (except for the new ones), so I actually get to help people in each workshops if they need it or want it. And two workshops in May ended up with no one in them. Makes it a ton easier on me, but not the reason we are doing these workshops.

I honestly think the 14 or 15 active workshops we have now are what I would have wanted when coming into writing. And the classic workshops are pretty good as well.

So here is the first session of the second week for this Saturday night. And if you haven’t, start from the first video the first week. Makes a ton more sense that way. And do the assignments for yourself to help in that aspect as well.

Kitten Picture and More YouTube

Cat Picture

After some meetings at WMG office, Kris and I took the stray we found that had been starving two weeks ago back to the vet. To try to find out more about her.

Basically, she is deaf, even after cleaning out her ears. But she gained almost a fifth of her original weight in two weeks, which was great. She also has bad teeth we can’t do anything about yet because she is still too weak. And she has a bad lesion on her tongue that we are now trying to cure.

And the vet is still convinced she is an older cat. Maybe so, but she is a love and we’re going to do what we can do to get her back to health. First time I’ve had a cat sitting on my lap since Walter died a year ago.

So here is a two week picture of her. She is a real personality, of that there is no doubt. All four pounds, eight ounces of her.

Topic of the Night: Fifth Week of Originality on YouTube

Second night the topic is just that I got up another full week of the Originality Workshop on YouTube. So below is the 5th session of the first week. There are five weeks up now total and tomorrow I should get up the last week.

As a couple people have told me to say, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel. Still not sure what that does, but people in the know seem to think it is important. (grin)

Riding with the Avengers

RIDING WITH THE AVENGERS

Today, by 3 p.m., I was in a large theater complex in the valley madly working on tearing down a massive floor display for the new Avengers movie that was about to flood the theater in two hours with rabid fans willing to cram in with other rabid fans for the honor of not worrying about spoilers on social media.

Now, no theater is allowed to sell those movie displays and I signed an agreement that I would never sell the display, but only use it for nifty wall decorations in the new store in the comic book room. (Free permanent advertising for the movie and the franchise.)

So I drove into the valley and took the thing apart, barely finishing in time to get the mess cleaned up before the hordes arrived. Then I filled my van with the front panels and the figures, some of them life-sized or bigger.

So all the way back to the coast, every time I looked into my review mirror, all I saw was the faces of The Avengers.

I live a very strange life.

Four New Online Workshops in Three Months

Yeah, that’s right, four. Author’s Voice started in April, Sales Copy and Business of Fiction Writing started in May, and Teams in Fiction Writing starts in June.

Kris and I are very proud of these four new workshops. Two of them we never would have thought to try to teach three years ago. We’ll see how they do. All have openings at the moment.

———-

Topic of the Night: Got Another Week of Originality on YouTube

That’s about it for topic tonight unless you want me to tell you how we gave the new cat her second bath. Let’s just say it was entertaining and since she had gained a lot of strength since her first bath at the WMG offices, her voice had the other cats very upset. (grin)

Riding with the Avengers and bathing tiny cats, all on the same day. Yeah, my life is very strange.

So this video below is the fourth session in the first week of the Originality Workshop. There are now four full weeks of the workshop up on YouTube. Over the next few days I’ll load up the last two weeks.

Don’t forget to subscribe to the YouTube channel so you won’t miss anything. And yes, I do pick the thumbnails. (grin)

Enjoy the session. A lot more educational than a film of a cat getting a bath.

Topic of the Night: A New Online Workshop: Teams in Fiction

Kris and I have decided, once again, to tackle a really, really important area of fiction, but one we believe most writers flat don’t understand or even realize exists.

Teams in Fiction

Basically, when Lester Dent (under a pen name) invented Doc Savage, he broke an old fiction tradition of one character and a sidekick. With Doc Savage, he created five team members that worked around Doc and by doing so set the template for all modern fiction.

Think about your favorite shows. NCIS, the number one show on television, has Gibbs in the middle and his team around him. Captain Kirk and his team. Luke and his team in Star Wars. Harry Potter and his team.  And on and on and on.

So Kris and I decided we would try to see how many people are interested in taking their fiction to another level by learning how teams in modern fiction work. This will be a difficult craft and awareness workshop.

It will be done a lot like the depth workshop, with lots of examples and lots of writing in assignments. We only barely touched on teams in the thriller workshop, barely. We didn’t even begin to talk about how each team member plays a part, a very specific part that readers are expecting to read.

And that villains have teams as well.

If you know how to create the team characters and the center character in your stories to give readers what they want and expect, you will make a lot more sales.

So here is the official blurb on the workshop. We are offering it June, July, and August. Limited to 12 in June and 5 each in July and August, so only 22 spots open on this workshop for the summer.

Information on how to sign up under the Online Workshop tab above.

TEAMS IN FICTION

In the modern world of fiction, teams of characters around a central figure play a critical part of the success of any novel or series. From NCIS to Star Trek to Harry Potter and Star Wars, teams form the center of most western fiction and storytelling

This workshop gives all the techniques and methods of building a successful team in your fiction, a team that readers will want to rejoin again and again, story after story.

This workshop will take a comprehensive look at how teams have come into our fiction and storytelling. From Lester Dent with Doc Savage to modern binge-watching shows, they all have teams.

In fact, in our modern world, readers and viewers are often uncomfortable when a team is not built quickly in a story.

And each character in the team plays a set role that you must be aware of as a writer before you can control the team in your own story. Readers are aware of a team member’s role, so being able to use that reader awareness to your advantage in your stories give you a massive advantage in sales.

This is a craft workshop similar to the depth workshop, with many examples of how teams are put together and built to bring in thousands of readers. And an awareness workshop. Once you see the roles of teams in fiction, you will never not be able to see it or use it in your own work.

This workshop will change your writing, just as the depth workshop did. Don’t miss this one.
