Auction and Other Fun Things Today

Thought I Might Get Started On a Novel Tonight…

But nope. Spent the late afternoon out at the two south stores and then the auction until after 8 p.m. Then I headed up to the office and ate dinner while I worked on workshop stuff, not getting home until after midnight. This switching workshops to teachable takes some time.

Then I watched some television and got a bunch of stuff caught up and did some reading on the challenges from October.

Remember, new challenge if you are interested in jumping in starting on the 1st of January. I am only taking five for the novel challenge and five for the short story challenge, so don’t delay too long. All the information is in the post I did yesterday.

So no start on the novel tonight. Maybe tomorrow, with luck and a little better time control on my part. (grin) I have no idea which novel I want to do. Just want to get started on something.



A reminder, if you have any desire to take a Strength Workshop or two, you have until Monday the 4th to sign up. Just two days. You can go through the workshops at any point in the future.

The Strength Workshops are six workshops. You can one, two, or all six. Check the link on the right side for deals.

You want to see how you are doing in different areas, there are two craft, two business, two  sales. All about the same size as a normal six-week regular workshop, only these Strength workshops you do on your own pace. You might be amazed at what you know and what you need to work on.

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.

Remember, these STRENGTH WORKSHOPS are only open for sign-ups through Monday, then we shut down sign-ups. Once in, you have as long as you want to take the classes.



Speaking of workshops, I started the Writing Fantasy Coast Workshop email group list. The workshop is taught by Kris and it is an intensive writing workshop that lasts a week on all the aspects of writing fantasy.

That workshop has been full for six months, but now has three spots open as life events with some people have caused them to drop out. Workshop is in April. Check the Coast Workshops link on the right for a ton of details about it and the other coast workshops we are doing. Write me if interested.



December Workshops will be starting on the 5th. If you are signed up, I will send you a code to get into the workshop Sunday evening.

There are now two ways to sign up for the Regular Monthly workshops. Either write me directly and have me sign you up on the list or simply click sign-up on Teachable.

Those of you with credits from either the Kickstarter or the certificate special we just offered, you must write me to sign up.

Those who would just like to sign up directly can do so on Teachable at any point. December workshops are there.

Nice to have some options on signing up finally.
