Well, I thought things would get back to normal after my son got over Influenza A, but nothing is ever that easy, is it? Poor kid had one good day last week, then came down with the stomach flu. 😦 Fortunately, he's come out on the other side a little tired, but functional. Ready for… Continue reading Writing and Goals: An even minier update?
Just had sort of an ah-ha moment listening to the the Writing Excuses podcast.
