I just wanted to give a quick update that I’m still around. I have plans to work on my superhero novel in September and finish Signs of the Hunted in October. If I don’t make those goals, I’ll be doing it it for NaNo. I would rather not start another project, while I have two unfinished for right now.

It truly inspired me, so I’ll try to do that soon.
Good luck to you and your projects.

I’m just here to give you an update about what I’ve been working on. I recently created a twitter account for my writing, and I have to say that I’ve been enjoying it so far. I was so hesitant about using Twitter at first, but the writing community is so welcoming, supportive, and helpful that I’m glad I made the plunge.
