I made... a small error. You see, I’m supposed to do #MushAnchMonday on Monday. This is Tuesday. Oops. Sorry, everyone! Honestly, it completely slipped my mind.
I have no new updates on the book, but I did, however, get the opportunity to read from it last week at an event at Cafe Cognito here in Moncton. I read excerpts from both chapters 1 and 4 of Mushroom and Anchovy, as well as a touch of my poetry. The reading went well--it was nice and intimate, with a small cafe that was filled with attentive people. If you were there, thank you so much for showing up! I hope to be able to do more events like this in the future.
As always, I have been extremely busy with my Twitch channel, on which I will be streaming 3 times a week for the next month. Tonight is one of those days, by the way--I’m making vegan marshmallows and yogurt tonight at 8:30 PM ADT and I’d absolutely love for you to join me! I’ve become an editor and regular contributor to a Twitch cooking newsletter called Cookery Nation, which has made for a fun combination of my writing and editing and cooking skills!
I have a full monthly roundup over on YouTube, by the way, if you’re curious about my many monthly projects and happenings. I have a convention appearance coming up and will be sharing the promotional materials on my Facebook page once they’ve arrived.
The weather here has been bright and sunny for the past three days. The grass is getting greener and flowers are everywhere. Happy May, all, and I’ll talk to you in June.
May your adventures be fraught with wonder and just enough peril to keep them interesting,
K. M. Cooper
It’s the first Monday of the month, meaning that this is #MushAnch Monday. I know it has still been only two weeks since you heard from me last... perhaps a minor oversight on my part, but hey, at least I’m being consistent!
Because it has, in fact, only been two weeks, I don’t have any updates or info--at this rate, I’m quite sure it’ll be 2019 before I have any news for you. I’ve been proven wrong before, though!
To let you in on some life updates, I’ve been doing a little freelance editing and proofreading of late. If you’re in need of an editor or just someone to bounce ideas and concepts off, please get ahold of me! I really love editing and will give you honest, constructive feedback to help you progress. Give me a shout for my rates and I’ll happily chat with you.
I’m getting ready to launch my next large-scale project, with details on that to come very, very soon. I’m so excited about this project and it’s coming together much faster than I thought it would. So you can be aware of when this is going to happen, I recommend following my Facebook page or signing up for the newsletter on my website. I’ll give you a teeny hint: it has something to do with the Practical Escapist!
As this is likely to be the last update before 2019, I want to take a moment to thank you all for your support in 2018. It’s been a quiet year for Mushroom and Anchovy, but hopefully the sleepiness is building up to a great 2019. I can’t wait to share all the exciting new things 2019 will have in store, and I’m thinking it’s going to be a really creative year.
What are your wishes for 2019? What are your highlights from 2018? I’d love to hear them. Shoot me a comment on my Facebook page or Patreon, or send me a DM through Inkshares.
Talk to you on January 7th for the next #MushAnch Monday. Have a fantastic holiday, whatever you celebrate, and all the best to you in 2019!
My your adventures be fraught with wonder and just enough peril to keep them interesting,
PS: Here is a doodle I did this weekend. I’ve been slowly getting back into art after a lengthy hiatus. Enjoy!
A happy #MushAnch Monday to you all!
I’d like to start by wishing good luck to everyone currently participating in NaNoWriMo. Mushroom and Anchovy actually started off as three separate NaNoWriMo books ten years ago, and now it’s in the process of becoming an actual physical book for you all to read.
I may not have any news, but I wanted to check in and let you all know that my next project is well underway. I won’t go into too much detail, but its name is Mossheart. I will be sure to post updates as I go through my various channels. I am typically posting mostly through my website, the Practical Escapist, my Facebook page, as well as my Patreon page.
Things remain busy here as we try to sell our house before Christmas (eep!), but I’m still managing to get some work done. I hope everyone’s enjoyed a fantastic Halloween--we certainly did.
See you next time, adventurers. Until then, may your adventure be fraught with wonder and just enough peril to keep them interesting,
It seems I completely forgot about #MuchAnch Monday this week in light of all the busy-ness going on. We’re currently selling our house in favour of moving into a bigger one in a smaller community nearby, and that’s kept us on our toes.
Also... WE GOT A NEW KITTEN. Meet Mystery, our third fur-child. Our human-child is absolutely enamoured with him, as are we!
As such, I don’t have any updates for you. I’ve been out of the house, cleaning the house, and doing just about everything but writing in and around the house. I haven’t even been cooking and, unfortunately, a whole lot of takeout has been the go-to, so I haven’t even put any new recipes on the blog--not even ones that are done!
The good news is that this should all be over soon and I should be in a new space before long. I hope so! I have plans for an "office nook", and if you’re interested, I’ll keep you updated on the progress of that.
In the meantime, please feel free to join me on Instagram @thepracticalescapist and on Twitter @ThePracticalEsc for updates. Please follow me on Insragram, because I’d love to hit 666 followers before Halloween... ;)
That’s it for now, adventurers.
May your travels be fraught with wonder and just enough peril to keep them interesting,
