I hate to just drop a bunch of links and not hang, but I have been in serious FULL_HERMIT MODE, where I’ve mostly been reading for STEAMPUNK PARIS when my cat will allow me, and all the other [INSERT VAGUEBOOKING BLAH-BLAH HERE].

I just wanted to pop in right quick to thank New North Country Girl’s Lesli for participating in the Writing Process Blog Tour that I tagged her in. She wrote some really lovely thoughts here, and they are very much worth the gander for writers. I especially liked this: “One thing that’s true about the writing […]Read more "New North Country Girl and The Writing Process"
