Winston - thank you so much for the feature. What a lovely Thanksgiving morning surprise! And I hope you enjoy the book when you get around to it. I think in 2023 I’m going to focus a lot more on the process of indie publishing (I refuse to call it self publishing because it takes a village…). I hope you’ll give feedback as you launch on yr indie publishing journey. It’s a wild ride!! Have a happy, pie-filled day. And thanks again.

Like all the creative things you're doing to evolve this space. Diane's indie publishing newsletter looks cool and I subscribed. I already enjoy Ben's writing and I hope people check it out. And I love subverting tropes, so if I can find the time, I may give the prompt a shot....

Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving :-)

Nice!! All sounds like good stuff and solid movement in the right creative direction! I love what you said about needing to write; feeling compelled to write. I just found a paperback copy of BIG MAGIC by Elizabeth Gilbert on the street. I started reading it and wow. She says the same: She writes out of pure joy and because she has to...but not financially or commercially but because she loves it and always has and simply cannot stop. You, too. Me as well. Most writers.

I subscribed to Next Draft. Looks intriguing!

Happy thanksgiving 🦃
