So glad you have signed up to receive the For Random Learning Comes Newsletter! This is the ninety-first edition.

Previous editions can be found on the blog's Newsletter page. I send it out weekly, so if you don't get my email on Saturday morning, please let me know! (Check your junk and spam folders too.)
It's very late on Sunday and I'm very late in getting this newsletter out which I try to post Saturday mornings. So it's short and sweet this time.

My post for you is very long, but it's mostly pictures, which I hope you will enjoy. It's a visit to Arundel Castle in the South of England. This Castle has been continuously occupied, more or less, by the Dukes of Norfolk and is an experience halfway between a museum and a manor house/ fairytale castle.

I very much enjoyed this stop after which we moved our stuff to the Isle of Wight, at least partially to put a body of water between us and the coronation hooplah going on on the mainland.

Not much going on writer-wise. I'm still waiting to hear on some submissions and plodding along with my current work in progress.

I did go to a fiction workshop today which was very interesting and fun. I also made a decision this week not to table at the Florida Writer's Association Convention in October though I plan to attend. I had reserved a table but I don't really have anything to put on it, so I let the next person on the waiting list have it. Maybe next year.

A little concerned about the hurricane headed across the gulf this week...Hope things are less interesting whereever you are! Stay cool!
