Year 2, Month 11, Day 2 of this Writing in Public challenge.
A decent day all around. Got a bunch of writing and hit my 10,000 steps.
Last day to sign up for the June workshops. Two are now closed. The other eight are still open for a sign-up.
I spent a bunch of time tonight reading assignments for the May workshops. Some good stuff.
Basically we had a WMG meeting at 2 p.m. and then I worked on shipping some stuff for Patreon supporters. Those who gave me their snail mail address who are at a paper level will get four volumes of Smith’s Monthly in the same package.
Sorry it took so long but wanted to wait for #19 to arrive.
Then home to do assignments for the workshops, then Kris and I went out for a long walk, then back here to write.
Melody Ridge moved onward again tonight in nice fashion in four sessions, just as it happened last night. First session was 1,100 words, then I went and watched some television.
Then another 1,200 word session, a short break to walk for a time, then another 1,500 word session, then more walking to get my number over ten thousand steps. (My day on my Fit bit is from 7 a.m. to 7 a.m.) Then back for one more session of 1,400 original words.
Novel is humming along. Considering how complex it is and that I have no idea where it’s going, that makes me happy. (grin)
So 5,200 words tonight.
TOPIC OF THE NIGHT: Another Last
Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the June online workshops.
And tomorrow is the last day to get the fantastic story bundle with all the writing books in it.
So after tomorrow (Wednesday) a bunch of learning opportunities go away. Poof.
Don’t miss this bundle, folks. Some amazing books in it. Doug Smith’s Playing the Short Game is quickly becoming the bible on writing and selling short fiction all over the world. Worth the price of the bundle alone in my opinion.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) is the last day to get it.
