Typical morning routine of a NaNoWriMo writer

Writing for National Novel Writing Month has had a bit of a rocky start. But, like many parents around the world, weekends belong to youth sports, so there’s that.

TMI Monday

Disclaimer: If you’re a delicate flower or easily offended I recommend you stop reading now. Also, I am neither tipsy (yet) nor crazy (debatable). You have been warned. 🙃
