I know I’ve been quiet, but that’s because I’ve been staying busy with revisions on my Dragon WIP (which I still haven’t even thought of a temporary title for, but you will be the first to know when I do, lol).

Dragon WIP Revisions Underway!

Hey guys! So, I wasn’t planning on beginning revisions for this Dragon WIP yet, but I couldn’t help myself, lol.

Writing Update

Hello again! I don’t have a lot to update you on, except to say that I broke 30k total words today 😁. I’m proud because so far, I’ve managed to stick to my goal of averaging 1k a day, but I’m also terrified because I haven’t outlined enough to reach a minimum of 90k when… Read More
