Developmental Editing Webinar

Hey friends - I've been away for awhile, mostly blogging at the Brevity lit mag site, and writing a couple of books.

- If you're still in the Despair stage post-election, you might like this blog post in particular: Chop Wood, Carry Water.
Inspired by kathrynrose and about how to move on in our creative work in the face of the unthinkable.

- December 3-4 I’ll be teaching a webinar on Developmental Editing - it’s aimed at editors, but it’s basically the exact same advice I give writers navigating the structure, plot, and story of their book. You might enjoy it, and the price is listed in Canadian dollars, so if you are American that’s a 25% discount in the exchange rate!  Find out more and/or sign up.

Do note that the webinar will stay online, so if the live stream is not a good time for you, you can watch it at your convenience. And please feel free to share that link far and wide :)

Other than that, I'm living happily in Dubai, loving my husband, and writing full-time, which has been pretty fun. Ironically enough, I am doing my best work in a co-working space--showing up every day at an office, sitting at a desk, wearing big-girl clothes. So much for my wild free spirit. It'll have to content itself with the amount of work getting done.

How are you?

I am very, very mixed. I'm a well-off cis able white guy. Personally, I think I'm going to be fine. But I'm seeing a road that looks a great deal like I saw in 1981 where we lived in terror and corruption reigned and lots of people I knew and cared about died.

I am, daily, becoming more convinced we are living in Weimar America. The question of "where would we go?" has come up more than once.

Personally, I also just expressed my desire to run over 2016 in the parking lot as it exits because nothing responsible for this much bad should continue to exist.

But we're all healthy, and I'm employed, and only one person I can actually touch is dying right now, so that's not as bad as some things.
