Talk about a whirlwind of activity that on the surface doesn't seem to be moving me forward but I suppose is more putting me in a better position to capitalize on forward momentum when it happens. Wait. What? So, yeah. Here's what's been going on: Signed up … Continue reading Camp NaNo
Oh yes, so we left off with me explaining how my recent bout of anxiety attacks is none other than my Divinity giving me a "thunk on the head" that I need to do better with my mental / emotional health. I've let my empathy run me over and it's left me floundering in other … Continue reading Okay, now where was I?

I'm going to sit here for … Continue reading Camp Journal – Day 27: The Summit of Mount Rough Draft

Just going along as I usually do, mostly with my eyes closed listening (transcribing) as my characters deal with whatever situation they have me writing about at the time and then this happens, “And could it be you’ve felt guilty about leaving me all those … Continue reading O.M.G.
It's down to the last four days of the 2 Legit So We Can Quit (our day jobs) Booster campaign. We're one shirt from half-way to our sale's goal of 50 shirts.
