When I hopped in my car to begin my drive, I broke down crying. I cried for the first half hour. Not just because I would miss my family (there’s
“Is it true that Brownies play tricks on people, Wesley? Like spoil milk and break dishes?” the little girl asked. She sat, legs crossed, beneath an oak tree. Wesley scrunched his nose. “Brownies?

The good news = I finished basic edits. The complicated news = I’ve added a few major changes that I’m still working on. New goal = to have a completed MS by July. *sigh* Why do these characters keep telling me things? Having said that, here’s an update on my submission goals for 2018! April: Sub
