Act 1 is Done!

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 [...]
