Camp NaNoWriMo Prep

Camp NaNoWriMo Prep

I’ve been busily preparing for Camp NaNoWriMo here at FaerieFits — I’m kind of treating the prep work as a warmup exercise or something so that I can full-bore when April gets here. Picking my pet Project I took quite a bit of time deciding which project I was going to work on. In November, […]

Audiobooks are Taking Over the World [Random Ramble]

I was busy adulting the other day and trying to keep up on real-world current events when I saw this heading in the Wall Street Journal: “One for the Books” Not terribly specific.
