Novel countdown: Chapter 13 went out to first readers.Posted: November 22, 2011
I knew, when I joined Critique Circle, that it would take time to write thoughtful critiques. In fact, it’s taking more time than I expected, but I’m glad I did it.

I knew, when I decided to start platforming by launching The Paranormalist, it would take time to develop a voice and establish connections. In fact, it’s taking more time than I expected, but I’m glad I did it. It’s been fun to work with short pieces again. NaBloPoMo, has helped me maintain a daily writing habit. And I feel like I’m making new friends.
Nothing feels as good, though, as making progress on the novel.
