NaNo 2014 Complete!

  I’ll be honest, there were a few times throughout this month that I didn’t think I would get this badge. Many excuses could be used but the biggest one was just that I was just not feeling it. Thankfully, I managed to pull through and complete the word count and I am so happy Read More

NaNo Update

Image courtesy of adamr at FreeDigitalPhotos.net I’m genuinely shocked with how long it has been since my last blog post.

Back at it!

Well, it’s been awhile but I did it. I got back into editing, seriously. I set aside everything else I would rather do (i.e. sleep) in order to make sure that I make it a priority. Isn’t it funny that when it comes down to it, no matter how important it is to you or Read More
