News

Kate Wilhelm, a writer of mysteries, suspense, science fiction, and p*ems, died at age 89.  She raised six children and published sixty books.  Wikipedia provides a list of works.

Victories

Aime and Randy got royalty checks.  Combined, they would buy a small meal.

Ciuin sold a book.  She has been hired to edit a book.

Education

A surprising number of stories fit well into the structure of The Hero’s Journey (wikipedia-monomyth) and they aren’t all epic fantasies.   Vladimir Propp was one of the pioneers of the idea as applied to folk tales.  Elizabeth Sims discusses the structure and how a Sherlock Holmes story fits it.  Here’s another comparison using Star Wars and The Matrix.
