A Three-Year Peekaboo

Writers Crushing Covid-19

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I last posted, like three whole years. It's entirely possible that I've forgotten how all this works.

I'd love to know how everyone is doing. Please, bring me up to speed. What have you accomplished? Started? Stopped? Any great things happen lately? Bad things? Made any momentous choices?

In Jeff news: My Flowers For a Dead Man story was included in the Writers Crushing Covid-19 anthology, available via Amazon and others. (All proceeds go to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation.) This effort was undertaken by the Piedmont Authors Network, a local writing group to which I belong.

I even did a reading of my story via Crowdcast back in August--a first for me. Numerous contributors assembled to read for the cause on three consecutive Saturdays. (I was the final reader in week #2.) There were some great readings all three weeks, certainly worth the viewing time.

And of course, my own personal goddess, Isis, allows me to serve and adore her as is only befitting her station (and mine). Better than six years running now, so she's got me rather well trained.

Isis will abide your adoration as well

I'm still writing; actually, I'm rewriting "book one" of my epic fantasy. I'm still sketching and painting with acrylics, although whether I'm improving is debatable. I've also been dabbling with digital art and 3D Modeling. It's all quite fun and relaxing. Here's a sampling of my dabbling.

But mainly, I just wanted to drop in and say howdy to everyone, send out my hopes and wishes that your health and happiness has flourished despite everything 2020 has thrown our way. Never give up. Never give in. No matter what. Character is forged, not adopted. You don't get diamonds without a whole lot of pressure.
Stay safe!
Remain positive!
And write the world that suits you!
