Good Friday morning, fellow warriors. With the start of a new year, a new president, and fresh hope for CoVid19 vaccinations, I find myself wanting to add to these new beginnings.
Most of my time in the recent months has been spent in online classes, studying the craft of writing. If you're not familiar with Ninja Writers (https://ninjawriters.org) or InkersCon (https://inkerscon.com, please check them out. They offer SO much information as well as provide a wonderful assortment of support.
My greatest accomplishment so far by attending these writing sessions is the creation of my Landing Page:
It's no secret how much I despise the marketing and technical aspects of what I do, but I can ignore it no longer. If I want to earn my keep as a writer, these are essential.
With the guidance of yech wizard Meg Stewart, the professional writing skills of teacher/author Shaunta Grimes, and the weekly discussions with fellow Ninja Writers; the inspiring excitement of Inkers Alassandra Torre and her team of experts at Inkers; and my own invented town of Ellison, I have managed to thoroughly enjoy these weeks of seclusion.
I'm not saying I'm not ready to BREAK OUT with a spur-of-the-moment trek to the Mall (Barnes and Noble, look out!), but these new friends and new studies have helped fill some of the darker hours of quarantine. My goal for January is to publish a subscription page to grow my e-mail list of followers. I finished that yesterday. There are still some bugs to be worked out, but it's functional.

Once you've subscribed you are eligible for free stuff and access to a planned newsletter.
Have a grand weekend!
