First Day of a New Year…

And the last days to get into both the short story and novel challenges and the Promotions Package.

Hope everyone is getting off to a good start today. I sure did. After watching the ball drop and then one or two songs afterwards, I went into my office, sat down at my writing desk, and fired up on a new novel. The novel is called MARBLE GRANT and I wrote the prologue to it tonight plus some more.

Fun to be back at it.

LAST DAY TO SIGN UP FOR THE STORY CHALLENGE?

There are still two spots open in the novel challenge starting January 1st and two spots open in the short story challenge. You get two regular workshops out of it no matter how you do. But you will do fine if you try it.

Two writers who took the novel challenge ending January 15th are just extending their challenge for another three months after that date. Nifty idea because the challenge is getting them focused and to the keyboard. And they get workshop credits. (grin)

Ticking clock… TODAY IS THE LAST DAY.

Promotions Package Ends TODAY As Well

Two spots still open in the Promotions Package offer from WMG Publishing.

Ticking clock… TODAY IS THE LAST DAY.

Everyone who is signed up should have gotten the first very preliminary questionnaire from me. If you didn’t, write me.

January and February Online Workshops Are Now Up on Teachable.

I sent out all letters tonight to everyone signed up for a January Regular Workshop through me. If you signed up directly on Teachable, no reason for a letter. Just hold on and the first week’s videos will appear on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on the workshop.

If you have credits from the Kickstarter, you need to write me to sign up. You can also sign up through me and use Paypal just like normal. Or you can go directly to Teachable and sign up there for any workshop using either Paypal or a credit card.
