More Running but No Writing

More Running but No Writing

Again today I spent most of my writing time working on workshop stuff.

But in the middle of the day, Kris and I went out for a run. (She did all the running, actually) but I went along for a long walk (6 miles today) and one mile of that I also ran.

I managed to run three quarter-mile legs with walking between, then three 1/8th mile legs with walking between. So today six miles total, one mile of which was running. I’ll take it because it felt like I can do this for the very first time.

New Workshop and New Schedule

Since a number of people have used the reward for supporting the Fiction River Kickstarter drive to buy workshops from November forward, we wanted to get more choices up. So now the schedule for workshops is up through February.

You can still get workshops through the Kickstarter or direct. Workshops bought through the Kickstarter drive won’t start until November, so keep that in mind.

And the new Point of View workshop has now been officially announced as well starting in October. Taking sign-ups now for it or any workshop between now and February.

The description for the Point of View Online Workshop is in the post above or on the workshop web site. It’s going to be an amazing workshop. And if you have taken the Teams workshop, this new workshop might help a bunch with what you learned in that workshop as well.

Now maybe tomorrow I can get back to writing finally.
