HAAARRRDDDDD

November is ending. While this brings me closer to VACATION and FUN, it also brings me to the end of NaNoWriMo…. My grand total of words is so grand, I am not repeating it on here. In my honest defense; Writing. Is. Haaaaardddddddddd. (imagine that word coming from a five year old as she slumps […]

DRUMbeats

(dedicated to Nick) The crisp blue air smothered her lungs. The first warning bell rang through the quad and the students trampled over the grass, a constant, moving, chattering mass. Crushed grass smelled like a tangy November. Blue, red, and vintage rag-cloth bags hung off backs like so many ladybug shells as they disappeared into classrooms. The […]

May the Writer: One day.

May leaned forward to tap her head against the desk, rocking back up then down again and again.

It suddenly occured to me to go back and check the wordcount for the story that I am rewriting. Here was my first thought. WHAT!?!?!? DO I REALLY PLAN ON REWRITING 86,283 FREAKING WORDS!?!?!?

NaNoWriMo Starts Tomorrow (I’M JOINING!)

Today is October 31st, as many of the children knocking on your door will reassure you.
