2015 in review

No major new writing projects were completed. No sales. However I practiced my writing a lot. I’m about to go away on a 5 day retreat. It was a treat to myself as a birthday present. I hope to reassess my writing career in that time.

Season’s blessings and a Happy New Year to all2015

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 650 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 11 trips to carry that many people.

Writer’s Retreat.

Attended a writer’s retreat at a beautiful remote spot. chanco It helped me boost my writing productivity.Here are some of the things I learned.

  1. I am a writer. To break writers block, just write. Seriously.
  2. Pace yourself. I used the timer so that I wouldn’t get cramped from sitting too long. I found that it ultimately kept the muse going. I didn’t feel nearly so wrung out.
  3. I should get a housekeeper. The only thing I did up there was clean out the sink and shower after myself. I made a pot of coffee once.  Other than that I ate snacks or what other people made; wiped a few counters and tabletops.
  4. And last of all.  ican
