I Think I Could Have Written A Novel…

Doing the formatting and layout of Issue Zero of Pulphouse is taking way, way longer than I expected. Mostly because it is the first time through. It will get easier with coming issues. Also I am doing it all to get the voice and attitude.

Today I was at the computer almost all day, so my eyes are very tired and no time to do a short story tonight. I am pretty happy with the twelve stories so far, but hope to get done and rested enough to do a couple more before the 1st.

But I got to take care of my one good eye, and today has been far too long at the computer already.

STRENGTHS WORKSHOPS

I announced that Kris and I are opening those back up again last night for one week. I got one person thinking that was only one workshop. Nope, it is six workshops. Two testing craft, two testing business, two testing sales. All about the same size as a normal six-week regular workshop, only these Strength workshops you do on your own pace.

And Kris and I both read each assignment and give you feedback on where you are at with each area we test. It is an eye-opener for some who find areas they are good at and areas they need to work on.

Link on the right with the other workshop links. Or look at last night’s post if interested.
