NaNoWriMo, Week 4 Update

I did it! I’m really pleased with myself not for just reaching 50k, but for not putting it off and then being forced to write an exorbitant amount in the last week like I did last year. I’m happy that I made a plan and stuck with it, which I’m not always great to when […]

NaNoWriMo Thoughts: Why am I writing THIS book?

Guys, I’ve never seriously considered hexing someone. Hexing is Ouija board shit, man, you don’t mess with it, that’s some dark kind of magic and nope. No thanks. But I swear to the goddess. Yesterday, I was having a good day. I did some housekeeping work in the morning–read a few blogs, did up the […]
