Impromptu Snow Day

Lately, I’ve been back on writing my novel.  It’s a gigantic process in the making and I’ve been writing it for the past 9 years.  Most of the time – I don’t think I’ll ever finish, but every once in a while, I pick up my gigantic stack of research books, look at my old links online and begin to type a page or two.  As anyone who reads my blog knows, I’m anything other than structured when I write and I try not to force myself into doing something I truly enjoy.
