Heads Up! It’s NaNoWriMo Time Again!

  So, last year you may remember me talking about participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). To recap, NaNoWriMo is a month where you sit down and squeeze out a minimum 50,000 words.

Nerves!

Today I handed in my first article.  It was a different experience than handing it into a professor or peer to edit, grade, and return. I sat at my editor’s desk as he read out-loud my article.  I couldn’t help but already nit-pick things that I could of changed, and small mistakes that I had […]
