Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 59

It's a clear morning, and it's cool. There are no clouds in the sky, except for thin ones low on the horizon, sitting behind the trees like mist. A crow calls. Bugs hum and chirp in the branches, making the air vibrate with sound, a reminder that it is in fact still summer, though it … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 59

Another NaNoWriMo won and done and in the bag *brushes off hands*. I finished at 1 am on Thanksgiving, fueled by brownie cheesecake.

I feel like I remembering it being warm so it could by May 41st. But also....like I can remember when the lockdown began but not when it actually ended … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post Vol. 32

Writing Like a Freight Train (I might kinda recommend it)

This is kinda of a long story so I'll try to sum up as nicely as possible. *ahem* A while back I had the idea to write a novel in a style I called "stream, of consciousness" or "brain dumping "(I know I know.
