Because I work for a university, one of the epic perks is a long Christmas break.  Since we’re off until after New Year’s, it doesn’t ever REALLY feel like a new year until I get back to work and into the normal routine.  Today is that day and I’m raring to go.  I’ve got eleventy […]

Posted on

Okay so I’m late with this #ROW80 update, but it’s because I have started a new shiny.  The holiday themed story that was SUPPOSED to be a Meet Cute has evolved into a full novella.  Because OF COURSE.

#ROW80 Round 4 Goals

Posted on

I feel like all I’ve been doing for the last month is spinning my wheels, constantly behind and trying to catch up, without a lot of success.  This is…not a good thing.  I get All The Things done because I have a carefully balanced system of spinning plates.  When new elements are introduced, that balance […]
