The nice thing about writing your plans down is that you then don’t lose track of them.
The nice thing about writing them down on a blog is that neither does anyone else.
So, because I’ve been head-down and grinding for some months, and will continue to be for some months yet, I wanted to take a moment to let you know what’s come of all this grinding.
There are some new writing classes
How To Write A Series has reopened, and I’m writing a brand-new, much better VERSION 2. IMPORTANT: If you owned a previous version, you own this one.
- Check first to see if it’s in your classroom. We now have almost all previous owners added back in.
- If it isn’t, take your receipt to the Help Desk.
I’ve brought out the new workshop 24-Intensive: Find Your Writing Voice. If you’ve struggled to find your own voice in fiction, you’ll see significant improvements in both your writing and the ease with which you do in in 24 working hours.
I’ve finished the first draft of Longview 4: The Vipers’ Nest. I’m now giving it a cool-off before revision.
I’m writing Lesson 9 of How to Write A Series, and will have that finished tomorrow.
Dan and I are now working on the final front end layout for HollysWritingClasses.com. I can’t give you a date for the site moving out of beta, but we’re close now. This is the last step.
We have the affiliate program, and are integrating it in with the site.
And the finished version of what we have now will become the basis for the ReadersMeetWriters.com site. Not gone, not forgotten.
My dreams have not changed. Some of my paths to reaching them have. But that’s a story for another time.
I need to go work on finishing a lesson now, and then go in and talk to some writers, and then see what Dan has done on the stuff he installed for me yesterday.
But I wanted to take a moment to say that when I get really quiet, it’s usually not “nothing going on.” It’s usually “working too hard to talk.”
Read with hunger, write with joy, live with passion.
