    There are just some main characters that drive you cra-zy. You know those characters that make you want to throw a book away or toss it in the fire or permanently delete your digital copy… Jerks This is kind of a broad topic. The way people define Jerk can be different, depending on how you grew up, your social standing, your culture, and so on.

    NaNoWriMo update and Blog hop fun

    #NaNoWriMo update Word count update: I’m at 28.000 ish words. I would post Work in Progress excerpts, but first drafts are messy, awful things, and it changes every time I sit down and write. The goal for this November is to produce a draft of events in sequential order. Then I can work with it and hopefully produce something worth reading. So. I just found another blog hop, which is awesome. I hope to post more regularly in order to build community, but life with two daughters is time-consuming. WWW Wednesday: what is it all about? All you have to…
