I’m going to copy and paste what I sent to my therapist on Wednesday because I feel like it’s solid gold. It really captured a big moment in my NaNoWriMo journey this year!Continue reading
NaNoWriMo 2016 Wrap Up
Recap: I did NaNoWriMo unofficially this year. Why not go official and get the cool certificate? Because rules.

Happy National Novel Writing Month!!
First, a confession: I’m not officially doing NaNoWriMo this year. I’m in the middle of writing a project that’s been in the making for years. Continue reading
