Writers in the Back Room…
Tonight at 7 p.m., a bunch of writers from around the country gathered in the meeting room in the WMG offices for a mystery workshop taught by Kris. Looks like a great group and I got to spend about thirty minutes with them before Kris kicked me out and into my office where I worked on Writing into the Dark online workshop.
Speaking of coast workshops, a few openings in the Master Class starting on October 21st because of a few cancellations. And also there are three spots in the Anthology workshop in late Feb. If interested, write me. They are invite workshops, but only way you will know if you can get invited is if you ask me. (grin)
Otherwise another busy day.
Interestingly enough, still a few spots in both challenges because I decided to take eight instead of five in each challenge. A few people are thinking about it and I didn’t want to close anyone out.
Also tonight I looked at putting together yet another issue of Smith’s Monthly. Might turn in another this coming week. And as soon as I get files I will be sending out to subscribers and Patreon supporters new issues over the next week or so.
There is still room in the short story and the novel challenge as well. Details over the last few days. If you have questions, write me.
If interested in signing up, just write me. They are going to be great fun.
SHORT STORY Challenge:
— Write thirty short stories in 60 days. You can take the full time or you can write them in a month. Up to you.
— I will charge $600 to be your first reader. If you finish 30 stories in 60 days, you get two online workshops of your choice, a $600 value. (In essence, I will read for free if you do the challenge.)
— If you feel the challenge is not working for you, I will offer you an off-ramp at various points and you can take it and get the two online workshops. So you can try this risk free.
— Write three novels between October 1st and January 15th. You can take the full time or you can write them quicker. Up to you.
— I will charge $600 to be your first reader. If you finish the three novels in the time, you get two online workshops of your choice, a $600 value. (In essence, I will read for free if you do the challenge.)
— Novels can be any length over 30,000 words and at least half of the first one must be written during the time of the challenge.
— If you feel the challenge is not working for you, I will offer you an off-ramp and you can take it and get the two online workshops. I also will give you two online workshops if a life event comes up and you can’t finish.
