Rising from the Dead…

Hey everyone!

Sorry no podcast this morning. I was so swamped at work that I didn’t get a chance to record (or write) last night. Looking at the deadlines for today, it looks like one of those days too. There may or may not be an episode tomorrow. It all depends on if I make it out of this alive.

Wish me luck!

I’ll wish you luck for your workweek too.

Happy wordsmithing!

Joy

A Short Update

It’s been a little crazy here at the DeVore Business and Industrial Park. Despite the fact that I didn’t have the time to post a podcast episode this week, I have been able to write (priorities).  I’m also thinking about different platforms and ways I can promote myself once I start publishing books. I even started a Substack account! It’s shiny, new, and empty as of yet but you can find it at https://joyshouldbewriting.substack.com/.
