Did a Ton of Stuff Today…
Started with the normal Sunday writer’s meeting up at WMG Publishing. Great fun, as always.
Then Kris and I headed out for a walk to get our steps. Then I went back to WMG and worked on workshop stuff, including the first new lecture.
Then home for a nap, cook dinner, and back in here to do e-mail and read some stories. Then after a cleaning break and another nap, I wrote up the stuff about the new workshop that is above. One time thing.
Kris is doing a great series on branding on her blog and Allyson and I thought doing a quick branding workshop to help a few writers with their covers might be a fun thing to do.
After writing that up, I decided that instead of writing tonight, I would play with editing. So off I went to work on Pulphouse Fiction Magazine issues. So made progress on that tonight, putting Issue Zero and the first four issues together. Got a long ways to go, but got a foundation anyway. A start.
So a fun day all the way around. I hope to push on the book and get it done in the next three or four days and get going on the next one.
NEW SPECIAL LECTURE SERIES STARTED
In an earlier post I detailed out the new lectures that I will record in May and through June. One new lecture per week in this special series will be added. Each lecture will consist of between 9 and 15 videos.
These are Advanced, Advanced lectures, taking up where the Business Workshop leaves off. The intent of these is to let writers know this stuff even exists when the time comes.
Special Lecture Series is called ADVANCED BUSINESS FOR FICTION WRITERS
— 1 Corporations for Writers $50.00
— 2 Taxes for Writers $50.00
— 3 Movies and Television Negotiations for Writers $50.00
— 4 Estates and Estate Planning for Writers $50.00
— 5 Copyright and Control for Writers $50.00
— 6 IP Valuation Dangers and Possibilities for Writers $50.00
For a week or so only, you can get all six new lectures for $250 subscription or 12 lectures in total for a $400 subscription. (You can bank the extra ones or take any existing lecture.)
All the details and planned new lectures after the business lectures are listed under the lecture tab. More detailed descriptions added as the recording starts for each one.
If you want the subscriptions, write me directly with lectures in the subject line. Very short-term offer. After that you can just get them on Teachable for their regular price.
