Off and Running

Also Getting Back Into Shape…

The goal is 13 weeks from this weekend to run/walk in the Las Vegas Marathon and complete it around four hours. So not only with the writing goals, I have an exercise and health goal. I considered today Day One, and got off to a good start. Did well over 10,000 steps (5 miles plus) of which a half mile of that was running.

I want to do about 40 miles per week of walking. Then over the next 13 weeks really ramp up the totals on the running.

Can you tell I am getting settled in here in Vegas? (grin)


August Regular Workshops Have All Started…

And I will have up the September workshops later in the week, then the August workshops will vanish, so don’t miss out on them.

There are very few signed up for these August workshops. Remember, the workshops only take a few hours a week of your time, so even for a month like August it should be possible.

And September there will be a new workshop or two announced. And some new lectures as well coming in September. And the reading list will go out for the first Study Along Workshop in September as well.

And September starts the new short story and novel challenge. Still spots in both if you are thinking about it. The goal is thirty short stories in sixty days or three novels in three months. You get two regular workshop credits for even giving it a try, so basically you get me reading your work for free.

So lots of stuff coming up and it all starts with the August Regular Workshops. Just sign up on
