I swear I’ll be commenting today though! 🙂  Anyways, here’s today’s and then I’ll go back to stressing.

Editing, Grammar, and Bribes

Editing and Bribes It’s been rough getting started, but the edits on my book-baby are officially underway!  Yay! I’ve discovered (rather quickly, actually) how difficult getting into editing mode is. Turns out it’s a different monster than writing the dang thing was. When I wrote the first draft I worked towards a word count goal, […]

Writing Prompt #8: You find a box in the attic that isn’t yours.

For this one I decided to have some fun and play around with tense. I picked present tense because it’s my least favorite to read and usually write.
