It’s not the best work I’ve done, but the chapter is finished. I already know that the chapter might need (will need) major work done to it but for now it’s done and I can move on. This means there are only two chapters to go and I should be finished the entire manuscript no … Read moreDay 52: Chapter 13 Complete
With all the pushing and shoving to get a WordPress.com account, it’s amazing we’re all still alive. I say this in jest, of course. It you haven’t got an account, or even if you do and you want another blog (we can never have too many blogs, can we?), then maybe you’ll be interested in … Read moreDid you know?
