I was as sick as I have ever been in my adult life the last two weeks, but today is the first day I not only felt well when I first woke up, but managed to accomplish a few things and still feel alright when I got done. For the last week, I woke up feeling fine, then the fever returned by mid-afternoon and laid me out.

Since I have lost so much time, I am going to break the rules here today and publish a whole lot of stuff; I usually only post a few items a week, and never have I published more than one post in a day, but desperate times call for desperate measures. I told you a while back that we finally got some sponsors and with those sponsors come deadlines; missing the last two weeks put me way behind and since we just landed these guys, I can't afford to make a bad first impression.

We actually have some "breaking" writerly news, as well as some of our regular grammatical features, and at least one entry into our Blogging the Write Way series. I am also going to get some more market listings out to you, because those are always good to have. I am still working on the layout, as well. You'll notice more and more features, links, and great stuff throughout the coming weeks, because this is not just a blog, this is the writing section for The Weirding.

Sorry the info dump, but it has to be done. While there will be a lot of ads close together this go-round, this is not the way we usually do things, so I apologize for that in advance, as well; in general, there are only 1-2 ads for every 2-3+ non-sponsored posts, but I have deadlines to beat, so they're going to come fast and furious this week.

Welcome to all our new readers and subscribers - we hope you stick-around because this is just the beginning of a great department on The Weirding. I am that rarest of writers - a working one - who actually enjoys what I do. With over 25 years of practical, hands-on experience, both online and off-, I have managed to collect a few awards and paychecks, along with a wealth of resources, and I not only have advice, tips, and tricks to offer, mine are actually good.

But the best piece of advice I can give anyone looking to break into writing is also the simplest: don't. Just quit right now - right this minute - and never look back.
