So I fell behind a day again – yesterday was too, too beautiful here in South Jersey to spend time looking at a computer screen (which is how I write), so instead I spent the day digging in the dirt in my backyard, preparing the ground for a garden. But I am caught up again, thanks to a quick hour and a half of writing time tonight. Today’s drafts are really not great, but I am at least capturing the ideas for revision later. 

Also! Don’t forget – it is not too late to donate to The Bullycide Project – see details here
