Today I've been trawling through every file on my computer, Dropbox and Google drive in an attempt to find something I started writing 3+ years ago. I remembered that it had been an attempt to write something with more of an 'action' feel to it, and that it began as an exercise in a creativity … Continue reading An abundance of M’s
I did it! Successfully managed to write to my goal of 20,000 words for the month, which means I 'won' Camp NaNoWriMo.
