I can't believe there are only 12 days until Christmas. I've run out of time to get everything done. I wanted to hand make some things but am really having trouble finding the time.
The good news is that my spare time is being used to work on my new YA novel. I'm up to about 6000 words now. That was my goal for this Sunday. I'm writing some really hard, dark chapters right now and am drawing upon my experience with grief and one of a close friend. It's rather cathartic to take that pain and channel it through a character. I'm letting her say everything I still can't.
