NaNoWriMo Drop Out

I wish I could say I did it – completed or stayed on par with the 50000 word goal of National Novel Writing Month but alas it has beaten me again. I’ve been writing, loads more than many previous months, just not all towards the novel and not the minimum word count requirement per day. […]

I’m not sure the author does this intentionally and it doesn’t really take me away from the story but finding stories with stronger woman is something I’m always looking for. I […]
