Word Wars - starts in about 30 minutes ...

Howdy folks! Going to be holding some word war/focus activities this month on Saturday's at 7am PST. This week, we'll be doing 2 rounds (25 minutes each) with time for a 10 minute break in between. Next weekend, I'm thinking a single round with a one hour focus. No idea what weeks 3 and 4 will bring yet :D

So whether you're working on a WIP or something new - hope you'll join us. Graphic types welcome.

Now off to make a couple of playlists so I can drown out hubby's snoring :D

Hi!

I've been gone for a while, getting my head on straight. Still not sure it is there, but it'll come back, I think. After a really weird year, I finally think I can get back into writing, and what better place to push myself than with this group that I came to enjoy back in 2014 :) I lost my enjoyment for writing and reading at the end of 2014 and now that things seem to be settled down, I think I can come back out of the depths of hell and try again! Especially at November brews ahead with NaNoWriMo.

My muse is sorely underused, so I'll try to get back into the swing of things.

Anyway, don't mind me. I'm just gonna go grab a whole bunch of prompts and see what I can get my head back into.

Cheers!

Danielle
