December Workshops Started

Strengths Workshops Closing Again Tomorrow…

If you are signed up or have credits through the Kickstarter offer, you can still get in and take them. But for new sign-ups, the window is closing. Just too much work for me and Kris to keep them open.

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.

Short Story and Novel Challenge

I am only taking five on each challenge starting on January 1st. So don’t miss on this one if you want a great challenge to start off your new year. Details are a few posts back.

But basically 30 stories in sixty days or three novels in three months. You sign up, when you are done, you get two regular workshop credits. (And with me reading your work I’ll be able to tell you which workshops will help you the most.)

Cost is $600 (same price as two workshops, so I read for free). Write me at if interested in jumping in. I will shut it off at five per challenge.

This will really get your resolution to produce more off the ground in January.


December Regular Workshops Started Up

If you think you are signed up for a December workshop through me, and didn’t get a letter, write me. If you signed up through Teachable, just read the instructions and the first weeks will appear either on Tuesday or Wednesday.

And still time to sign up.

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.
