Round 2 begins! I’m excited to harness the active energies of spring and move toward my favorite season, summer. I have some ambitious writing goals for this Round. They’re also really fun, so hopefully that will keep me motivated.
I’ll come up with some more specific word count breakdowns around my main writing project soon.
Without further ado, here’s the list. Wish me luck!
