It must be the unusual 'heat' that we are having (it's been in the upper 70's now for almost a week straight!), but I'm fumbling getting both of my new projects started out 'on paper.' In my Hemingway project, I have a lot of beginnings thought out, I even sketched out one, but I wasn't happy with... Sign in to see full entry.

Just Some Thought Processes As I Prepare to Move Forward

After three solid months of writing about hate, murder, and blood lust, my pendulum has swung back the other way.
