Writing Project, Title Unknown

I’ve started a new writing project. I’ve got three different names for it currently and I’m not sure which one suits it best. Here are some stats on it: Title: Unknown Word Count: 0 fiction / 1700 outline Total Words: 1700 Deadline: March 30, 2016 Genre: Fantasy I’m going to try writing daily and posting…

A New Year, A New Start

I’ve been seeing a lot of year-in-review posts and, since I’ve been thinking about restarting this blog, I figured I’d do one of my own (not that I’ve kept very good track of anything…). 2014 was a very stressful year for me. My PTSD and depression brought me to an all-time low, which greatly effected…

Stress Relief

I’m working my way through some tough depression, stress, and anxiety.
