Camp NaNo Progress Made Yesterday
I sifted through and revised 3209 words as I redrafted a chapter in Surge of the Soul Eater. I didn’t add those words to NaNo tracker since I was reordering scenes with a ton of copy/paste with tweeking to smooth it over. Continue reading “Camp NaNo Progress Made Yesterday”
