Jet Lag Took Its Ugly Toll…

Fell Asleep and Burned Dinner…

Not kidding. I put on the potatoes and mushrooms and onions to boil. The idea was to have a simple dinner with pork loin, gravy and potatoes. Nope. It was not to be.

Even simple seemed to be beyond me tonight.

I set my alarm on my phone for ten minutes of a nap while the potatoes cooked and next thing I knew the poor helpless things were dry and burning. I hadn’t cooked dinner, I had tortured it. And the smell coming from the kitchen was not something to make anyone hungry.

Kris sent me back to nap some more and fixed something from the freezer.

So finally, after eating later than normal, I managed to come around and wake up enough to finish answering more email and then do the assignments for the first half of the January workshops and then start the first half of the February workshops.

But even with a wild plane rides and jet lag and burned dinner, Superstars was worth it.

Promotions Special Offer…

We shut the Promotions Special Offer down back around the first of December or so, but we opened it up again for 10 writers from Superstars who might be interested. (A special offer to those attending.) But only two have taken us up on the offer, so if anyone wants to jump in, find the Promotions Offer on Teachable and watch the free video about the thing and read the description under the video. It is open to anyone right now, but will be closing up for good in short order or if we get ten.

    As one of the Superstars attending, I was very glad you were there and am glad you think the burnt dinner and the plane ride from hell were worth it.

    It really proves that newer writers always have something to learn from those who have mastered things we have yet to master because no matter how often I listen to you, I learn something new-

    “I hadn’t cooked dinner, I had tortured it” – and you encouraged my last sip to escape dramatically towards the poor keyboard! So pleased to meet you and learn from you at my first Superstars. Sure hope future travels are easier than this last trip! Please don’t hesitate to return to Colorado next February!
