Really! I’m not! What I AM is really, really busy. I’ve completed 2 Shitty First Drafts so far this year. They’ve been cooling their heels for a month, and I’m going to start revising them on May 7th. In the meantime I’ve been working on a 3rd Shitty First Draft…I’m ALMOST done with it, but… Continue reading I’m Not Dead!
I do not like New Year’s resolutions. At least, I don’t like those vague wishes to be a better version of yourself. They don’t work. They don’t stick.

I am so fucking glad this shit-show of a year is almost over. But enough of that. Today I want to talk about why… Continue reading Challenge Yourself, or, Difficulty Setting: Hard Mode
