Writing Update: January – March 2020

Hi all, I'm combining several writing updates because, to be honest, I didn't get a whole lot done in the beginning of the year.

NaNoWriMo 2019

#NaNoWriMo 2019 – Week Four Progress

And just like that, NaNoWriMo 2019 is over. It's the last week (+ two bonus days.) As always, this week overlaps with the Thanksgiving holiday, which means family and food and probably a bit less writing time for most. Before I reflect on NaNo as a whole, I'll recap this week's progress. I started this… Continue reading #NaNoWriMo 2019 – Week Four Progress
