    Mondays Are Always Fun…

    And Really Hard… Mondays I need to spend a lot of time at the computer. This morning I started off finishing up some work left on laying out Smith’s Monthly issue. Detail computer work. Then this afternoon I did email and some of the homework assignments. More computer time. Gave my eyes a rest by going to the store and taking a nap, but after dinner back doing assignments. Got everything finished on that front by 12:30 am with one break to watch some television. Then off to write a daily short story. Finished the 3,000 word story at 3 am, then came over here to my internet computer to…

    Two Days Left For the Half-Price Sale!!

    Countdown! I figured I should repost what I did listing a bunch of classes available and add a few more. The point is that every workshop or class or subscription is half off on WMG Teachable. And wow do we have a lot of things to pick from. Just find the class you want, hit purchase, then on the top of the next page put in the code: SETBACK And yes you can stock up. Just got to do them one at a time since Teachable does not have a shopping cart. But I did put up four places where you can buy… — Three Regular Workshops — or Three…

    2 Days Left of The Last Sale

    COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS… Just so it is clear. This sale will end on Thursday evening West Coast time and that will be the last pandemic half-price sale. We started these last spring as WMG’s way of trying to help writers stay in and stay safe and learning through the turmoil. We hoped after the first few we would end it, and every two months we did another because the pandemic was still strong. Now, for those who are able to get the vaccine, the pandemic fear is over and we are into recovery. And now time for WMG to start into recovery as well. Like everyone we need to…

    Workshop Sale AGAIN!!

    Back to School, AGAIN… Workshop Half-Price Sale As I said two months ago, I honestly never would have predicted this last spring. Not in a million years. Not many did and those who did warn us of this, none of us listened to. We just couldn’t imagine being locked up for a year. But at least now we have some hope on the horizon with the vaccines going out. But they won’t do much good especially over the coming months. Back when WMG Publishing did what we all thought here would be the last workshop sale way back in May, 2020, we had an expectation that as things opened up,…

    Stay Safe!!

    Covid is Spiking Everywhere… So I really hope that all of you reading this are not taking an chances, staying safe, wearing masks, watching distance and all that. Right now Covid is worse than it has been, and I see no sign of easing up. So focus on the writing, focus on the learning of publishing and writing. Tough to get Covid when sitting alone at your computer writing. We are trying to help once again to keep you learning and in and safe with the half-price sale on the workshops that will be doing until Tuesday night. If you have any questions on anything, write me. Here is the…

    Workshop Things To Note…

    Especially with the Half-Price Sale Going On… — There is a page that I did two months ago with the curriculum of workshops and lectures and pop-ups with suggested order and sorting to try to make sense of all the workshops we offer. I have not included the last two months of stuff yet, but will. You can find the link on the right side of this page in the sidebar.  Workshop Curriculum link… — The special three-week workshops that are given with Kickstarter campaigns are not offered anywhere. They can only be gotten through the original Kickstarter. And right now we have a special workshop offered in our Holiday…

    Last Day of Half-Price Workshop Sale

    Almost Over!!! The half-priced sale is at least. Tonight, late, is the last time the EndofSummer code will work (Tuesday Night.) I sure wish this pandemic, the reason we offer these sales, was also almost over. But sadly, at least here in the States, it is not. And here we just went through a major holiday weekend. Cover of our local paper today showed crowds of tourists on the strip, on the sidewalk, almost all without masks. The casinos enforce mask use in all areas and also social distancing. They are required to do so by the Gaming Commission and the Governor. And they don’t want to be shut down…

    Short Post Tonight

    First Off, Thanks for the Anniversary Wishes… Very much appreciated, both here on this blog and in letters and on Facebook. Kris and I are both kind of surprised it has been that long as well. (grin) Second, the code to get half off of the workshops or lectures or subscriptions is SummerLearning2020 A number of people today had trouble getting that in the right place. Basically you find a workshop or lecture or class you want to get half off for the next three days and hit “Purchase Course.” On the page that comes up, right at the top, it says, “Add Coupon.” Put in the code SummerLearning2020 at…
