The Economic Value of Writing Original Fiction ~ via Holly Lisle

I had a post planned for today, but I’m saving it for next week.  Let me show you why:

“The Economic Value of Writing Original Fiction” or “a reminder that what you write is never for nothing.”

I urge you to visit that link and read that article.  Not just fiction writers, but creators of all kinds deserve to know that, even if their creations are just a hobby, they’re contributing to their own emotional well-being, as well as the economy and lives of those around them.

What you do matters.  Never forget it.

I’m so behind.

So, with allergies and illness peppering my last two weeks, I’ve been scrambling hard to try to get everything done.  So, here’s a status update:

  • E-Book Exclusive:  Will be out in a day or so.  I had some issues with my final piece, and I… honestly probably should have given Calibre a test drive before I decided to use it.  I’m still working out some snags, but I’m getting there.  So, another day or so.  I promise. <3  ALSO, if you subscribe via RSS, I do not have record of your email.  If you’ve subscribed after May 18th, please send me an email at gogglesandlace [at] gmail [dot] com so you can receive your free e-book!
  • Talion:  All the ridiculous issues with Calibre, the e-book, and the health situations had me so busy I forgot today was Saturday until ridiculously late last night.   ._.;  I swear, not being (gainfully) employed is really killing my sense of time.  This is entirely my fault, and I’ll probably have a late update on Tuesday for you. <3
  • Letters from Blackford Hill:  ON SCHEDULE!  <3  Part 10 will be posted on Monday.

I really appreciate everyone’s patience the last couple of weeks.  You’re all fantastic. <3

Things G&L can offer in the meantime:

  • Check out some of our back Prompts/Exercises, or participate in this week’s Apocalypse.
  • Catch up on LfBH or Talion before their next installments.
  • Sign up in the left hand column for a regular email update of G&L, and receive the aforementioned e-book exclusive!

Thanks again for all your patience, interest, and encouragement!  I love you guys!


Happy birthday to my Dad!

And happy Father’s Day to all you other Dad’s out there!
