Workshop Day

Workshop Day

Still pretty tired from the schedule getting screwed up yesterday with jury duty, so spent the day doing workshop stuff.


The Day

Nothing really much to talk about. Introduced our cleaning person to the new cat, then headed to the WMG offices to work on workshop stuff. Had lunch with Kris, then more workshop stuff.

Home for dinner around 7 p.m. and then I watched the Blazer game with the new cat on my lap. Then I took a nap, watched more television, worked on more workshop stuff, and am now going to call it a night.

Got stuff accomplished, just nothing exciting. (grin)



May Online workshops are starting next Monday.

That’s right, May 1st is Sunday. Workshops start on Tuesday. And still room in both new workshops that are starting in May, plus the Author Voice workshop that started last month and the Dialog workshop that started the month before.

I am sort of surprised at times how good a list of workshops we have right now.


Topic of the Night: Did three this week. 

Enough for now.
