Challenge,  On Writing,  publishing

Writing and Lost Track of Time

You all know how that happens…

I planned tonight to write one of the longer blogs on one of the questions from last week. So I’m banging along on a fiction project and I had taken a few breaks, but didn’t think to look at the clock until I realized it was 5:30 a.m.

Those longer posts take me an hour or more, and a clear mind. Not happening at this moment. (grin)

So soon.

Time… when you are writing a story and having fun, it sure zips past. (grin)



Workshops start next Tuesday and Wednesday. Yes, it is February already. Still room in all of them, but a couple are close to full.

Full lists at:

Any questions at all, feel free to write me. And if you are confused as to which workshop to take first, we have a full curriculum posted on its own page.
