When Words Collide – Online 2020

14 Aug

So I’m not sure when I’m going to be around for WWC online, because I’m on nights s so I need to rest some time. Yeah yeah, ‘Sometimes you go sometimes you don’t!’ I wasn’t planning on this year because one of the guys in my station has major seniority and he always takes time off in August. The rotation has to really work out or all I get are nights off, and I could go on abut scheduling and how I never get the stats I want, but it’ll sound like kvetching. I don’t mind working through the pandemic, neither.  We’re very lucky in Manitoba to have relatively low numbers and, I’ll be honest, I’ve been able to be ‘socially distant’ on things like playing tennis and kayaking for the nice part of the year. It’ll get cold and we’ll all bunker down again in a few months, so my main complaint is looking through my old pictures of travel and realizing it’s probably not going to happen until around 2022 (*le sob*).

So writers, readers – those who are just interested in learning about smaller publishing houses, even ethical concerns and some science associated with some literary theory – this is an awesome way to reach out and meet likeminded folk as well as generally network.

But as for me, I’m going to be posting a ton of writing related videos on FB, mostly from Youtube. I encourage you to post back.

For tomorrow, R.J. Hore and I will be at Shelmerdine’s Farmer’s Market (weather pending, it looks fine so far) selling books. I still only have the one title in print, working on it. I have two ebooks ready to self-publish, I need to go to the bank and get some info. Lazy lazy. One’s really just a short story, but you get the idea.
