by syaffolee

Seriously, where has the time gone? I feel like I’m perpetually behind. I will say that the April session of Camp NaNoWriMo was a little unusual this year on my part because I went on vacation on the last week of April and then when I came back to work, I basically had a lot of catch up to do.
