Ha! Thought I wasn’t going to post for week 3 huh? This week was a little more tough than the last two. On Tuesday I started feeling a little off, like I was coming down with something. Needless to say Wednesday and Thursday I stayed in bed as much as I could, I am … More NaNoWriMo End of 3rd Week
The NaNoWriMo website has ruined my NaNo life this November. But that’s a post for some other day and it’s not going to stop me from writing. Plus I’m sure they’ll work out the glitches. So I’ve been updating my progress off the website, slowly because remember I’m not following the 50,000 word challenge. My goal … More NaNoWriMo End of 2nd Week

Summer is here!! I hope everyone is finding a nice sunny place to spend these next couple of months. One thing that I look forward to during this season is the warm afternoons filled with the dwindling noise of the city. I like to wait until it quiets down turns into a serene breezy twilight. … More What are you writing this summer?
