Spent the Night Cleaning Up Stuff…

We all know how that goes to get ready to write after a while away. Got all the March workshops started up, all assignments done, my brain back over on the book I hadn’t done much with since before the Anthology workshop, actually a week or more ahead of that because of all the reading.

So tomorrow night I will start tracking the writing. It will be a slow start I am sure.

I can warn you all right now, this will not be the easy, smooth process I sometimes make things look like here. First off, I have a huge orange cat that has decided that this time of the night my writing chair is his.

Second, I have a ton of stuff, including trips coming up, but going to write through it all when I have time and detail it all out. As I said last night, I have to be nuts to even think of writing through the next two months, but if I don’t, I won’t hit my 67 challenge.

So going to give it a try and you folks can follow along as well to see how well, or not so well, I handle life events. Might be a learning experience or at least a chuckle or two.


Secrets Workshops…

They are webinar workshops, with a combination of recorded videos and a weekly in-person session webinar. Four weeks long.

Some folks don’t like the series title, but I kind of do because, to be honest, there will be a lot of focus on things most writers don’t know.

So here are a few of the workshops we are pretty solid on in this series. We are open to other suggestions. (Not taking sign-ups yet.)

— Secrets of Selling Short Fiction in 2018/2019
— Secrets of Writing Successful Space Opera
— Secrets of Writing Serial Fiction (Raddish)
— Secrets of Writing Detective Fiction.



The first half are started up. Second half on Wednesday. Still time to jump into any of the workshops.
