I will dig down into the why of what happened, the writing ways Kris managed to keep going, and so much more about publishing and surviving as a long-term professional. This might…

    Writing Classes

    Here Are The Pop-Up Classes… Kris and I have been working on a bunch of Pop-Up classes the last few days. We are first getting out the four stretch reward Pop-Up classes from the Pulphouse Kickstarter and at the same time I am working on the stretch reward Pulphouse anthologies.

    SPECIAL OFFER FROM ME…

    Workshops Are In Second Week!! I realized that yesterday after doing the post about the workshops closing later in the week, and then tonight I was doing assignments and starting the second weeks. As I was doing that, I realized that almost no one would jump in after missing the first week and the first assignment. Especially with the Collection Classes. So I talked to Kris about my idea and she said, “If you don’t mind the extra work.” So my SPECIAL OFFER IS THIS… If you jump into one of the Regular Workshops, Collection Classes, and Advanced Pacing Class, and send the first assignment with the second one this…

    Today Everything Has Started…

    Stunning Amounts of Stuff… Wow, was this a busy start to a new year for new workshops, Kickstarter, diet, and exercise. I signed up for the tracking of trying to run/walk 2023 miles in 2023. For me that is just over 11,000 steps a day without missing for an entire year. Yeah, that’s a streak. Down two pounds on my first weigh-in of the year on Monday, so considering the holidays, a total win. And I am slowly trying to bring up the running a little without damaging my old knees. Mostly just walking the 5.5 miles a day at the moment. The eye is slowly improving but still really…

    Coming Out of a Fog

    Finally Coming Back… Been dealing with this eye injury for about a month now, then got a horrid cold, worst one I have had in years, actually, that made my eyes blurry on top of the injury. So a fun couple of days being mostly blind and sneezing. Joy. But as the cold slowly clears, I feel like I am coming out of a fog bank and seeing the sun again. And clearly, under the cold-caused crap, my eyes are slowly improving. Yay! A couple more days and I will only be dealing with the eye issues again. So sitting here at this computer tonight, with the screens blown up…
