    This looks awesome. I have a problem downloading free programs like this and then never using them. I just love looking at them.

    Is anyone planning to NaNo this year? I just finished an outline so the timing feels right. Maybe.

    I was thinking about it, but I'd be a "rebel" this year and not write anything new, just edit. Because my life has become edit.

    My nephew just came and asked me to critique his story for school since I'm the only person he knows that writes and I thought that was kinda cute.

    My sister just told me she loves my book (she got an advanced copy) and she just posted it on her facebook (just a picture of the front) and all these people I knew in high school are commenting on how exciting it is and how they can't wait to buy a copy and I'm like

    Oh shit people who know me are gonna read this. This is writing related.

    To keep it super writing related here's a NaNo update: I'm really halfassing it. I did a couple chapters of book 2, but got book 1 back from the editor and have been working on what he said to fix.
