Miscellany Janey

Guess what! I have a free short novel (a work-in-progress, really) that I am posting in increments on Wattpad. Interested? It's called Racing Through Time, and it's about time travel (duh-doi, right?) Plus I'm active on Tumblr again...Behold! And don't think I haven't forgotten you, O those who have signed up for my kindness/encouragement experiment.…

For five writers, I will put together a daily email of encouragement/motivation/ideas/prompts/etc. I will also individually cheer-lead these writers and review/revisit/revise goals with those five at the end of each week. This will be starting in February.…
