Back From NaNo

Today is the first Monday in December. Wow. This year has gone fast! Soon we'll be in 2018, reflecting back on the good, the bad, and the weird of the distant memory that was 2017. For now, though, we still have one month left and, more importantly, it's a Month where I am back on …

Creative Guilt

Do you have too many projects? Ever feel guilty for working on one but not the other? I left today free from scheduled posts so I could write something about me doing NaNo. I could have attempted to make a prediction for how I would be getting on, but that wouldn't have the same impact …

The Hiding Place: A Monday Motivations

Behind the fireplace in the drawing room, once you’d moved the book case slightly to the side, lay her safe space, her sanctuary; a place where the rest of the world just didn’t exist. It served her those nights when her siblings were squabbling, when her mother had been drinking, or when her father was …
