Part of Getting Ready…

This living at Pulp Speed Five 10-novel challenge has me really thinking about my new office. I really, really love it, but it dawned on me a couple days ago it is not well-arranged for writing long projects. Oh, oh, I think 10 novels in 100 days is a long writing project. (grin)

I am in a fairly small space, which I love. My past offices were way too big. And here I am surrounded by three large iMac computers with extra screens. Six screens in total. I flat love that.

But my writing computer is not in the right spot for comfort for long hours of writing, so I am going to switch it and its second screen with one of my business computers tomorrow. That desk will fit better.

And even more importantly, it will give the writing a feeling of separation from the business computers since I actually have to scoot my chair to get to that desk. And when I am writing, my back is to all the business stuff. Perfect!

So slowly getting ready while clearly the decks. Starting on Sunday.

Follow Along Living at Pulp Speed Five.

I announced this a few days ago and have a number already signed up. Limited to ten. You can read the post about my crazy challenge to myself of writing ten novels in 100 days, plus write a book about it at the same time. But here are the basic details…

— Cost $500.
— Limited to first 10 paid.
— A letter every day from me for 100 days about the process of writing novels starting September 9th. (even on my bad days.)
— Questions about the process when you want.
— Early read on every book I write.
— Anything you start and finish writing inside the hundred days, you can send to me to read after the challenge is over.

To pay, just send the fee to Paypal at dean@deanwesleysmith.com which is the WMG account and then write me that you have done so. I will announce here when I get ten and this closes. I would have killed for something like this as an early writer, so don’t miss this one. I will not be doing this again.

(Write me if you are in the other challenges and want to join this. I will give you a discount.)

All the September workshops have now started. If you think you were supposed to be in them and are not, write me. Still time to jump into these and a ton of room. Four of them have no one in them at the moment. Typical for this time of year and when new workshops start.

Our Fiction River Kickstarter Is Going Strong.

As I write this we have gone past our first stretch goal and headed for the second after only one week. So people will get lots of cool books who support this.
