Killing Them Softly

Last weekend I talked about my #romanceclass2017 manuscript, and how I was ready to drop everything that I was working on just so I could get cracking on the revisions.

So I Finished A Manuscript (#romanceclass2017 Edition)

After several days of struggling with time management, snit fits, and numerous distractions, I finally finished my first manuscript for 2017.

WIP Dispatch, Special Edition: Fair Play (Camp NaNoWriMo 2014)

I used to have this feature on my blog where I talk about the writing projects that I plan to undertake during the year.
