January 2020: An update

Hey folks.

Looks like 2020 is rolling. That’s good. The “holiday season” is over, things are returning to normal.

The season of string is upon us. I’ll spend endless dark winter nights looking at Phiala’s String Page, and far too many YouTube videos by Bernadett Banner and Angela Clayton. (Ayup, just lost a half hour looking at a 1940s coat construction video.)

Dreams of sugar plums will be replaced by dreams of double-ply alpaca fingering weight wool and kilt-making.

While the days are crystal clear and brutally cold I will spend time writing, querying, and hopefully rounding this mess of a website into something new – or at least up-to-date. I’ll be satisfied with that.

And, I’ll be keeping folks informed of my path of recovery from #cptsd. So, stay tuned for more on the mental health cha-cha. 

(I don’t remember where I got this photo. If it is yours, please let me know so I can attribute it properly.)

Super-secret project

For a long time, the joke around the house was that I was the professional writer. This was based on the fact that I have earned a total of 47 cents with my writing.

You might notice I vanished for a few weeks there. I was working on a super-secret ghostwriting project. Bwahaha. I have finally finished it. I can’t reveal what it was – ghostwriter and all that. But I have finally earned something better than 47 cents.

The pay was low for the work I put in but it has demonstrated to me that I can make some significant money with my writing.

That is a tremendous encouragement.
