Things I have learned in the last two days. First: I am SOOO glad I finished my Novel for NaNoWriMo before Thanksgiving!

As I have written my story, it has taken quite a few … More The existential dilemma of whether or not to follow your characters wherever they might lead.

I see a lot of $$$ myself because I can just see that has lawsuit written all over it. I … More Does it count if it’s still “tonight”?
