    Really nice mock cover. I made one for my current writing project (art crime mystery set in Egypt), and it inspires my story (still at the plotting and research level). You noted you felt behind in everything just now. I hope you are feeling reassured. The twin stresses of the coronavirus and the trying-to-be-peaceful demonstrations really do upset our sense of what our world is just now, but we do need hope. Your energy will see you through that long to-do list. May the coming month be a good one for you.

    Love the ship on your mock cover! Congrats on your writing progress. Sounds like it will be a creepy fun read. Good luck with your courses. A two-foot Banta – wow, that’s great. Star Wars 4, 5, and 6 will always be it, for me. Love those movies.

    Hmmm. I posted a comment but it didn’t look like it went through. Anyway, you’re so busy! I love your Ghost Pirate cover. You rock!

    I love your mock-up cover. I wouldn’t even attempt one. That takes talent, Juneta. And the idea of you teaching courses is fabulous. Sorry I’m late. I couldn’t get on yesterday.

    Oh my goodness, but you have so many irons in the fire! No wonder you have tough times juggling all of them. I’d love to create a course on life storytelling, but I just can’t get myself to focus on it. Looked into thinkific. Not familiar with Podia, but will look it up. Thanks.

    Grats on all the things you’ve been accomplishing lately! That’s awesome. And I totally get the time related angst–something I know all too well myself. I hope your courses are as smashing success and you make great progress on your novel!

    I’m thrilled to hear you’re writing. And I LOVE the title. Ghost Pirate. How cool!

    I love the cover! Great book topic too! I love rock opera bad hadn’t thought of pirates! Star Wars has always been my first movie memory. I admit though, I was not a fan of Jar Jar Binks. My kids love him though 🙂

    I’m sure that mock cover will inspire and keep you focused. I’ve heard of writing a single descriptive sentence to stay on topic. Never thought of using a picture. Excellent idea. is a great resource.
    Wish you total success with your classes. Stay healthy.

    Congrats on the progress on your space opera! I love the cover – I make them for my projects for inspiration, as well. Good luck with your course development. What a great addition to your writing career!

    Best answer I’ve read, Juneta. I had trouble with this one and as I visited others, it seemed most of us did. We either didn’t want to share secrets or couldn’t come up with one worthy of sharing.

    I like your Ko-Fi button.

    I knew there was something off with Star Wars 1-3, but couldn’t put my finger on it. You nailed it. It explains why I slowly lost interest in the series.

    You own a Banta – too cool.
    I like the sound of Starlight Galaxy: A Space Opera!

    I adore your mock up cover for Ghost Pirate. That would make me snatch it up in a heartbeat. I’m with you on the Star Wars rating. Loathed 1-3! No one will shame you for your collection (it sounds like my son’s basement room/museum of collectibles!). I envy you your ability for brevity – I need 90K+ to tell a story!

    Your mock-up cover looks spooky in a good way. Sounds like a good premise.
    Your short story class also sounds good too. Can’t wait to learn more.

    That’s great you’re designing that course. I love the cover of Ghost Pirate – it’s very creepy. And delaying the release a bit is probably a good idea.
