The last week has been…well, a year in stress and changes and everything else. I’ve been blogging about it to help people through the changes. Those blogs are currently on Patreon, but will hit here, starting tomorrow night.
It’s becoming increasingly clear that people worldwide are staying home. Inside. With computers and streaming and books to keep them occupied.
Last week, Allyson of WMG, Dean, and I discussed a way to provide weekly content to readers and writers. The Stay At Home And Chill Newsletter will tell you about deals and discounts...and if you sign up now, you’ll get two free books to help you relax through this crisis.
That was last week’s idea. This week, as the crisis magnified, and it became clear that everyone would be at home, and going ever so slightly stir crazy, we were trying to come up with something that would focus the mind.
I am taking a Spanish course, just like I did last fall. The course was in person, but is no longer. However, I have found that doing the homework has really taking me away from monitoring the virus statistics, worrying about my friends with compromised health problems, and compulsively watching the news. The course itself focused my mind.
So, as Allyson, Dean and I discussed various things we could do to help people remain indoors, we focused on our various online courses for writers (and one or two might be of interest to readers). We finally came up with letting you choose what level of distraction and study that you need. So here’s what we came up with:
For the next 48 hours only, we’re offering 50% off all of our online programs, from classes to lectures to pop-ups. To see your choices, and to get something that will keep you focused, go to WMG Publishing’s Teachable page on Teachable.com, and use this code:
The 50% off special will last until 5 pm PDT on Thursday, March 19. Again, to access click here: WMG on Teachable.
And please, feel free to share this with all of your writer and reader friends.
Stay safe, stay healthy. We will get through this—together.
