I never did a wrap up for August, but that’s long in the distance. Safe to say, I re-released all seven Topic Workbooks and did a lot of promotion for Legerdemain, and taught virtually at a conference. September was pretty busy, too.

Quarterly newsletter out

Kept up with script coverages

First arc of LEGERDEMAIN polished/uploaded/scheduled through early Dec.

Episode-specific ads created/uploaded/scheduled

Kept up with book reviews

Kept up with Gratitude and Growth

Kept up with Ink-Dipped Advice

Graphics for Topic workbooks campaign for October -December

Organizing creative projects for 2023

DROPPED/MOVED:

Withdrew from Authors Guild in-person conference due to lack of COVID protocols

UNEXPECTED ADDITIONS:

Substack

Submission calls

Short story outline (lighthouse)

DISAPPOINTMENTS:

Project management software does not meet my needs. It lacks the flexibility I want.

Had to drop the idea of meeting some submission calls because I could not prioritize the time to write the pieces necessary.

Lack of COVID protocols at conference, which meant I had to withdraw

Lack of synopses for stage plays (on the list for the coming months)

Behind on posting links for the Topic Workbooks

Injured by fireworks

The amount of time it took to recover from the booster

Recruiters (so sick of them wasting my time)

Fire in the building

Retrogrades

SUCCESSES:

Creative Ground

Bonuses from Script Coverage

How was your September?
