This year I have been writing a novel. There are about 2 ½ months left on my projected timeline. Wow! Where has the year gone? Where am I at with my novel? This summer I became the owner of some silverware sets. The sets came in nice old wood boxes. One of the sets was… Continue reading Where the words live
This year I am writing a novel. Some of you may recall me sharing a few posts ago that I am unhappy with my chapter one and that at some point I need to go back and do a hardcore edit or re-write it completely. The problem has been that I haven’t been sure of… Continue reading No more haunting
