News and Copyedits

This isn’t my typical Writerly Resource post. Instead, this is a celebration post! Because it is so important to celebrate our victories, no matter how small they seem. And I figured maybe some of you would like an update on how my own writing progress is going.

Today’s victory… I’VE FINISHED MY COPYEDITS!

Community is the Key to NaNoWriMo

 

Hello everyone! The first FULL week of Nano is coming to a close. How is everyone doing?

I knew this month would be a challenge with classes AND the commitment of working on my NANO, but so far I’ve managed to do it all *knock on wood* thanks to some great time management, some sleepless nights, and some amazing communities who encourage me every step of the way!
