Welcome back! I've been in a crazy-editing zone recently, so I haven't been posting much else on here. I'm hopeful that by the time this goes live I will have finished my first edit pass of the novel!!! I already know it needs another full edit before I pass it along to my first beta readers, but I'm excited about where it's going and how it's getting better. :) Just a quick update before you all wow me with your stories this week. So get to it!
