Week Fifteen Check-in!

Hi to any and all who are reading this. Welcome once more to my blog, where I'm currently keeping tabs on my weekly writing goals. My goals have been the same for nearly four months now, being that I want to achieve a word count of 5,000 words each week. I also have a secondary…

Week Fourteen Check-in!

Hi to any and all that are reading this. Thanks again for checking in with me and keeping me accountable. Keeping this word count goal going can be difficult at times. This past week is a good example of this. I'm sorry to say that I fell way short of my goal for this past…

Dear Journal, I'm writing this in the middle of the night, sitting on my back porch. It was a long night at work, long but productive. And though I was exhausted when I got home, there was more work to be done. I had been lingering at the end of this manuscript for a couple…
