I’ve Been Busy…

Tuesday was my last day of classes. I just handed in my second last paper today. I have a final exam on the 22nd and another paper due on the 29th. As such, I’ve been very busy recently. I’ve also been trying to do Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m at 4700 words of my 10,000 word goal.

I’ve also recently been re-updating my plan to get published. With any luck, this plan will get me published.

I’ll try to post more regularly this month, but I’ll be busy until the 29th, so no promises.
