Creating Brilliant Beginnings in Storytelling

I’m thrilled to announce the release of my newly expanded – and retitled – course, Creating Brilliant Beginnings in Storytelling.

I invite you to join me on a journey of discovery, exploring the art and craft of brilliant beginnings in storytelling. Storytellers write these opening words to draw readers across the threshold into the imaginary world of story.

Working to get the Storyteller Academy site back up…

I’m a fanatic about doing backups, so when I realized I’d broken this Website while tweaking the settings and couldn’t fix it, I thought I was covered.

I headed over to the BackupBuddy people to download my latest backup and restore it. And that’s when I got the bad news.

There were no backups available!

It seems I’d set up every site I have with daily backups, and I’d certainly installed Backup Buddy on my WordPress site – but I hadn’t set up any backup schedule.

Operator error! I’ve got nobody to blame but myself…

I fought with trying to import my old WordPress database into the new one for a few hours Tuesday, searching for tech articles on my situation, and kept running into hurdles. Yesterday I was fighting off a monster cold that’s been knocking everyone around me off their feet, so I gave myself a treat and downloaded the newest Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson book and spent the day in bed.

This morning, after another try on the tech research, I decided to go back to the beginning and set up the site from scratch.

[updated 6 Apr 2017 3:30] I’ve got the links to my courses and YouTube videos working, a few other details.

Tomorrow I’ll have to sit down and redo the blog I was about to publish when I broke my WebSite.

Sigh… I’ve been in computers since 1979 and I should know better.

Ah, well. I can always blame it on the cold virus!
