You Are Not A Failure

I am writing this post as much for me as I am for you, my readers. Midnight of May 1, 2018 is ticking closer. This is probably my eighth or ninth time attempting National Novel Writing Month–or, in this case, Camp NaNoWriMo (the April + July versions, as opposed to the traditional November version, for… Continue reading You Are Not A Failure
