Writing Life Update~Different Layout

Since I’ve been negligent about posting updates each week about what I’ve been working on, I figured a different format to catch everyone up would be the easiest option.

I AM writing which is great! I’ve been really inspired lately and it’s taking me no time at all to get a couple hundred to over a thousand words written.
