News and Updates

So, it’s been a while since we had a big “Where is Jen and what is she doing?” update post, but there’s quite a few things going on in the coming weeks and months, so I wanted to do one…

Writing Journal #22

So, NaNoWriMo is going well. By which I mean, I’ve written approximately four times and am only about 3,000 words behind. That’s nothing, though; I’ve recovered from greater word count deficits every time. I have now run out my outline,…
