I hit my 15k goal for this month, despite taking quite a few days off. I probably hit it several times without knowing, considering everything I’ve cut. But we don’t count new on top of old over here. If the goal is five hundred words and two hundred are deleted along the way, write seven.… Continue reading The End of the Month Update
Whilst I’m going through the older stuff I’ve still got kicking around for Dark One’s Bride, I’ve found myself stumbling into quite a few pieces that just didn’t mesh with Clara’s whole personality.

The whispers of a new kitchen are getting louder. Might be adding a laundry floor to that, too, considering where the new washing machine sits is slowly giving way.
