#NaNoWriMo 2014: Day 15, Weekly Report

NaNoWriMo 2013: NaNoWinNer!

It’s October 31st. Hallowe’en. But more importantly… it’s the day before NaNoWriMo 2013 starts! Yay! I’ve had… not the best luck with NaNoWriMo the past two years; I kept getting sick partway through Week 1, and never caught up afterwards. … Continue reading
