We are 12 days into Camp NaNoWriMo, and I have made some pretty great strides in my goal word count and overall novel writing and structure; I can really see this little project setting itself up and taking on a life of its own. Since I have finished the first major portion of the story…… Continue reading [WRITING] Camp NaNoWriMo Update!
Grab a cup of coffee and a blanket everyone, this is about to get a bit snuggly.
