Going to End Up With Twelve
Life Just Didn’t Allow For More…
But honestly, I wanted 15, figured I would get 10, so I’m okay with 12. I’m going to be busy again tomorrow and then on the 30th I’m going to clear the decks for writing some novels in December.
By the way, if I don’t write another short story in December, I will have written 50 short stories in 2017. Exactly what I needed for 12 issues of Smith’s Monthly.
I did get Pulphouse Fiction Magazine Issue Zero formatted and it will be going out to all Kickstarter supporters and subscribers on Thursday. Amazing amounts of work. I still hadn’t started the assignments tonight when I was still up at my office at WMG at 1 a.m.
So I will be tracking my novel writing in December here as well, so stay tuned if interested in that.
And I have three books this week coming out in my 67 challenge. I will do a newsletter next week about them.
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. Or look at last night’s post if interested.
Remember, these STRENGTH WORKSHOPS are only open for sign-ups until next Monday, then we shut down sign-ups. Once in, you have as long as you want to take the classes.

Dean, will this Pulphouse issue on Thursday have stories from the first run in the 90’s? Or a mix of old and new?
It will have stories from everywhere. Amazing bunch. Top short story writers.
