I literally jumped around my room cheering at the end of this writing week. Act 1 is complete. Yes, your applause is welcome. Last Thursday I absolutely smashed it out of the park. I tackled four difficulty scenes and hit a word count of 2828. I can't believe I was able to tick off so … Continue reading Act 1 is Done!
This week I have felt like I wanted to watch a sad movie and cry everything out. It has been one of those weeks. Absolutely crazy at work. I’m not exactly sad. Just stressed.
