Listening to: The Flobots, “Handlebars”…again. Really like this song. Top Five Reasons Why I Will Never Do NaNo Again After one week–seven days, yo–and 14k words…my brain, it is dead. The funeral is tomorrow. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to The Society for People Who Join Ridiculous Writing Endeavors. I can no longer […]
