What have I been working on?

  1. Edited and uploaded March Patreon story
  2. Finalizing the Chronicle proposal: Market Analysis (which wasn’t easy)
  3. Wrote the sample chapter for proposals
  4. Changed the Storey proposal to A to Z Knitting and put that together.

What’s in Edits right now?

  1. Edited March Patreon story before uploading
  2. Edited Sample Chapter of A to Z Knitting Stories before adding it to proposal packet
