A Reader’s Holiday

As I write this, we have a little under 2 days left on the WMG Holiday Spectacular Kickstarter for 2020. I really do think that this Spectacular will help all of its subscribers get through the stay-at-home Zoom holiday season that’s coming up. We have three Calendars of Stories in the Spectacular. The one I focus on is the winter holidays section, because it is […]

Business Musings: Moving Forward

Well, that happened. Thank heavens. Seriously, 2020 has lasted, by my count, 4,852,376 days so far, and of those, 50.000 of those days occurred last week. As predicted, all business slowed to a crawl as the entire world watched the United States finished voting on November 3, and then tallied the votes. Hardworking people in municipal and state governments all over this country stayed up […]

Something To Look Forward To

During the last few holiday seasons I spent in Oregon, I was so sick that I couldn’t go to most holiday celebrations. I’m allergic to much of the universe, I guess, and in the tiny Oregon town where I lived, I couldn’t go to any restaurant because they cross-contaminated. Not to mention the fact that they had terrible ventilation systems, so if someone showed up […]

Half Off All Workshops!

But I realized I have some cleanup to do. I need to let you know things, which I will do over the next week, so you don’t feel inundated. I know I’ve […]

Recommended Reading List: October, 2020

What a month of distractions. The election, weather weirdness, an actual run!, and so much more. It’s been tough to find the time to read at times, just because the days are so full. Still, I managed. I tried very hard to read a book by a writer whose work I adore. The book had what we call anti-reader cookies for me. A plethora of […]

Business Musings: Difficult Times

I grew up in difficult times, not just for the world, but for my family as well. My family’s difficulties paralleled the difficulties around us. For example, my nephew, the first baby I ever held, died the same week as President John F. Kennedy. As the country reeled from his assassination, my parents and my brother and his wife drove to my grandmother’s home in […]

Holiday Writing Workshops Half-Off Sale

The headline here says it all. Because those of you in Europe are going through the second wave of COVID, while those of us in the States are still in our first wave (inundation) thanks to the worst pandemic response in the world, WMG, Dean and I decided to do another half-off our online writing workshops again. This time, the sale has a holiday twist. […]
