Never thought I’d be a D&D player, but here we are.
Random thought of today – Any writing is good writing, right? (write?)
I’m joining a D&D campaign later this month, and after being provided a hefty dose of world building (Thanks DM!) I ended up writing about 4-5 paragraphs about my character. Pretty fun, and I realized how much I actually missed writing. I don’t suppose anyone would like to read my tentative background here, but if you are, leave a comment below and I’ll be glad to post it.

I briefly wanted to tell you about how I’ve been planning my last two novels. Ever since I started writing, I’ve been planning my novels out.

Here’s today’s snippet after the break.
Not much to report today, other than the fact that editing has so far netted me about 250 more words – one of the challenges with picking up a novel after leaving it for so long has been to actually remember where I was when I typed the first part! No worries, it will get there!
