You’re awesome and I congratulate you. If you are a bit behind like I am, you’re still awesome, and you deserve commendation for persevering despite your discouragement. In case you need a bit of a writing pick-me-up, here are some of my favorite writing quotes. Continue reading “Favorite Writing Quotes”
This is another excerpt from a short story instead of The Shadow Raven.
Fiona’s eyes flashed open. The room around her was still, but it only took her a moment to identify what sound had woken her. The front door had opened.
