NaNoWriMo 2020 – Day 29

I started planning my novel again today. In the grand scheme of things I didn’t do much, but I did start getting out all of my ideas. This is something I’ll continue to do for a while so I have enough material to put into a book. Some of these ideas won’t work. Others will […]

NaNoWriMo 2020 – Day 24
