The Journal, Saturday, 12/31

Hey Folks,

THIS JUST IN FROM KRISTINE KATHRYN RUSCH: If you have ANY books with All Romance Ebooks/OmniLit, read Kris’ post here: This is an advance look at her post from next week.

Two other links that might help are these:

All Romance Ebooks Closing

All Romance Ebooks Suddenly Closing

I hope none of you have books with ARE/OmniLit. So now back to the normal post:

Happy new year’s eve. And I hope 2017 is the best year yet for all of us.

I will write for awhile today and I’ll watch some college ball because, well, it’s college ball.

I guess I can still say I’m a writer. (grin) Details below.

I wrote a bit, then carried a load of recycling stuff to the center, then back to write a bit more.

The Peach Bowl started a little after 1, so I’m off for the rest of the day.

Please see Dean’s Once More… For the New Year… Pulp Speed (

Also see his 12/30/16 Daily ( It’s worth the time.

Today’s Writing

I wrote a good opening for a really weird SF story, all writing into the dark.

A phrase popped into my head — “the day before the Sturgis Metal Run” — and I was off and typing.

Back tomorrow.
