A Poem: Today I did the dishes

It's MONDAY! Which usually means I share a book review or something about what I'm reading. Today is a little different. I'm not even 1/3 of the way through Sword of Shannara, which I'm reading, and I'm laughably behind in Jon Tyson's The Burden is Light.

Hey Everybody! One week of NaNoWriMo is over already!

I tipped over 11,000 words yesterday and these are some … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: 1 week update
