A to Z Blog Challenge is here again, and this year I’ve decided to participate. I’ve done it a few years back and I’m glad to do it again. So click the more button down below to see what my theme will be.

First I want to give a shout out to Nicohle Christopherson. She is co-hosting IWSG this month. She is also my first student, and it has been a privilege to teach her. Like many beginners, she was resistant to my teachings, but over time, saw the value of my wisdom. In that time, we’ve watch the first 12 seasons of RedvsBlue (good to watch for great dialogue), and started watching Elementary together, and a number of movies, many of which she thought she wouldn’t like.
I’m very proud of her. She is destined to become an author. So I ask that you stop by her page and show her some love.
This month, I promised to talk about my big project that has kept me very busy. So busy I haven’t done anything else that I really need to do. I do apologize for all the secrecy, but I need to make sure that it is I who releases this, as it may very well help me out of my financial situation.
Start off, I am currently at the halfway point for the current phase I’m in for my project. Likely after I finish this and the next phase I’ll be at the halfway point for the project. I’ve decided that for February IWSG, I will reveal what the project is.
I love the show Elementary. Sherlock Holmes in NY with a female Watson. What’s not to love. It’s a great show and writers can learn a great deal in watching it, especially the biggest lesson one can learn from it.
In one word: Tedious.
You thought writing a book was hard enough, but doing a writing help book is a whole other beast.
We are now in the middle of NaNo, a time honoured tradition of trying to write a story in 30 days. This year I am not participating, but NaNo is still a time for me to celebrate.
So this is a super quick post, primarily because I don’t want to lose my place on the IWSG list. For some reason that is important to me.
I’ve been super busy as of late, spending a lot of time working on my course. I meant to do this long ago, but as you know, things happen. My computer crashed on me. Thankfully, my computer setup is designed that if I do crash, I don’t lose that much. Some stuff was lost. My computer has 3 drives, and the OS drive (or C:\) is only 32GB. Then I have a drive for programs and storage.
I hope next month to announce my actual course, and maybe have a coupon for my readers. It looks like I won’t do another Worldbuilding article until next year. That really pains me, as I have so much I want to write about, but this course takes priority.
I am happy that despite only having one article last month, I still got over 900 views. It’s good to know my website is still relevant even when I am very busy. When one has very little in life, the smallest things are the biggest achievements.
