#CampNaNoWriMo April 2015: Progress? Bit Not Good

So, it’s the second week of April, and what have I done? Not much, I’m afraid. Started out okay, though not great, on the first… and then didn’t write, and didn’t write. *sighs at self* As of yesterday, I only … Continue reading

So, as it says, we’re at T -27 hours and counting for NaNoWriMo 2014, here in Newfoundland and parts of Labrador. And the Plot Bunnies are going, “Dragons! Dragons! Dragons! Hip hip hooray!” (Or something to that effect. It’s distracting.) … Continue reading
