Three Issues of Smith’s Monthly to Patreon Supporters
Three issues got to you today through Patreon and subscribers should have two by now and the third goes out on Monday. Paper subscribers will be a week or so, since the paper copies are still on their way.
I want to thank all Patreon supporters for your continued support. It means a great deal to me. Thanks!!
And today I got some words done on the novel as well. Moving along on it.
And I got my 10,000 steps. Decent Friday.

Classic Workshops and Lectures are also available at any time.
Week #1, Session #6 of the Essentials of Making a Living with Your Fiction online workshop. This was recorded in 2012, one of the first we did, so be kind to the audio and video parts. And if something is dated, ignore it.
And remember, I had nothing at all to do with the ads over the videos and do not indorse any product.
The second week is now also available. This is the last main video of the first week. There is an assignment video but I am not posting it here.
If you like what you see in these two free workshops on YouTube, remember to look to see if one of the August workshops that are modern would help you. I always suggest that when starting our workshops, start with the Depth workshop for craft or the Business workshop for business stuff.
