Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
I miss you guys! I do, I do. I had to take an extra day off yesterday (and might have to take another one off this week) because I’m just a few days out from turning in my manuscript, so I’ve pretty much been glued to my computer screen, writing, rewriting, and editing 120-some odd pages of work 😬
To say that I’m full of nervous excitement is a bit of an understatement, especially because I got to see a sneak peak of what the basic layout and design of the book will look like, making the whole thing feel more and more real.
So I hope you guys will forgive my slight absence over the next couple of days, but I promise to be back in full force soon! Until then, here’s some good reads from this past week 😊
