I completed my first draft of my memoir

I completed the first draft of my memoir last night. This morning I started my first revisions and additions. I had planned on taking a week off and to start another project. However, when I woke this morning, I sat down in front of my laptop and began the revision. I guess will continue onward. … Continue reading I completed my first draft of my memoir

If you have been wondering

If you have been wondering why I haven't posted any of my usual insights, or themed excerpts of my life, you should know that I have been busy writing my memoir. I wrote 5,000 words yesterday and rebuilt one of the chapters I lost Thursday night. I don’t want to give great detail on the … Continue reading If you have been wondering
