Setting Up for the New Year…
I am bringing forward some older blogs that I think might help many of you get ready for the coming new year. I will do Step Two tomorrow in a blog, but these older blogs have been updated for 2017 and should help also.
You might remember reading them, but you might be in a different place now to hear something different this time around.
As for my day, spent the afternoon and evening at the WMG office and north store, mostly working on workshop stuff. Home to cook dinner around 7 p.m. and in here to do workshop assignments.
Then after a long nap (the second one of the day) and some television, I went to my writing computer (late start) and actually got a long session of 1,400 words done.
Then updated the two posts from the past to make the for the coming year.
Now, after I post these, I’m going to go put Smith’s Monthly #37 together to get turned in.
