I have just completed my National Novel Writing Month project for July. It was touch and go on a number of occasions but I am proud to announce that the first draft of The Gift Shop is now complete. It’s one of the most personal stories I’ve ever written and, as tends to be the…… Continue reading CAMPNANOWRIMO – July 2019
Had these printed up this week. Reminds me of what I’m missing by being back home. Live, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.
