I’ve finished my first trilogy, folks – my first trilogy that hasn’t turned into a series, anyway 🙂 I finished Broken Moon, book three in my Aura trilogy, last night while watching The Dark Knight Rises with my roommates. It was very anticlimatic, actually. I finished and went to grab a piece of cake before… Continue reading The Customary Celebratory Post
Well, NaNo’s in the past. And I won! Yay! The final word count was 75k with some change. My older sister also won; I don’t know if my younger one did. But anywho!

Well, it’s 8:11 pm on day five, and I’m procrastinating on homework while writing about aromatherapy and super powers. Interesting mix, no? WORD COUNT: 18,005 I got off to a decent start with 8,000 on day one and wrote (sor far) 5,000 today, but I floundered a little bit for the three days in-between. But… Continue reading It’s Towards the End of Day Five
