Thank you for visiting, and I hope you take away something to inspire your next creative project.
This weekend, I hope to get my next chapter update done before NaNoWriMo hits. Also, while I should get next week’s curation scheduled as well, those will be the last until December 8th. I will, however, post my progress, weekly. This year, as last, I will be a NaNo Rebel, because I will be working on the revisions for Reality Bomb. I’m focusing on getting a project completed before moving on to the next, these days, and I’m not at all ashamed to say that this year has thrown my writing for a loop.
It takes the time it takes.
Until the weekend, then, be well and stay safe, be kind, and stay strong. The world needs your stories!
