Excerpt Time!

I just broke 42k words on my novel this week! I’m so excited to be so near to the end. It feels a little scary that there’s less than one-tenth of the first draft left to write, but if I forget something, there’s always second drafts, right? XD Also, the message of the novel is … More Excerpt Time!

My Poor Characters

You guys, I’m getting a little concerned for my characters. Their author just keeps piling things on them. O.o.

XD By my nearest count, I … More Halfway, HOORAY!

Batteries and a Book Club

I’ve already writen 5,000 new words (distraction free!) on … More Batteries and a Book Club

My 2020 Bookish Goals

Happy New Year, again! 😀  I’m seriously loving how the numbers “2020” look. It’s satisfyingly symmetrical. XD  For the past two years, I’ve been setting word-related goals and sharing them here on my blog, (see how I did on last year’s here), so I thought I’d do it again. 😀 And this is more of … More My 2020 Bookish Goals
