It's the last day of November which means it is finally time for me to have a day to not really do a whole lot. Unfortunately in my world these kind of days do not exist.

Only yesterday I got an apology message for the way someone had approached the news that I had already hit the 20,000 word mark. It’s getting worse for everyone else because today I hit 25,000. … Continue reading NaNoWriMo – Day 6
For Arcade Fire fans this is the fourth coming. Win, Regine, Will, Richard, Jeremy and Tim have pushed aside the boulder that was their own tomb once more to reveal the shiny and beautiful Reflektor LP.
