Hey everyone. How's it going?

 

Today is the day to be thankful, so I thought I'd share a few things I'm grateful for. I'm grateful for spellchecker because, believe it or not, I'm terrible at spelling. You want me to prove it? How about I write the rest of this without one.

Today marks the first day I'll be going over the book 3 draft. This read-through's goals are to see if the story makes sense, adding details where needed, and doing quick edits.

What's going on, everyone?


Well, guess what? Book 3 draft is done! Holy crap, it's done. From one struggle after another, I never thought I'd actually make it this far. Time time, I made sure to have a word surplus.
