Take the Make Art Not War Challenge and Change Your World Once More Into The Breach This is going to be a ridiculous month of writing and holidays for me. By "ridiculous", I mean old contracts and zombie projects have reared their ugly heads. I'm SO ready for this, though! I did have to turn off the news and most of social media. Outside of work, I do feel a touch disconnected, but I've also noticed how many headlines have been blaring across the waves lately. That affected my focus without realizing it, and the ability to basically shut everything out to pound out massive word count is something I can't afford to lose.
