One thought on “Challenges and Projects

  1. Lee J Tyler says:

    I adore your blog and have contemplated putting my closed sign permanently on my site and just reading. I’m reading Nom de Plume currently (Carmela Ciuraru) and it is no slouch at all. Very in-depth look at the lives of each author and the reasons never thought of for our craft that we should consider, even as writers, but do not. I have a whole library of books and am too busy to update my Goodreads account; otherwise, I would display it on my page. I like how you have laid this page out, dear and am going to follow your blog. (I’m on as well only spend my time tinkering with code over at org šŸ˜‰ sigh…) Lovely job. I would sign up for the challenge, but the list of books that I must review is frightfully long and are all in the present time. ;( Best! Lee
