NaNoWriMo: Nearing the Finish Line

There are just a few days left in NaNoWriMo 2016.  As of writing this, I am less than 3,000 words away from a win of 50,000 words.  I am by no means near finished with anything.  While I have mostly put aside my work on Northanger Farm, I have had some major developments with theRead more
