I have been working hard to focus back on my writing and have been working on some various projects. Some take more time and effort while others have been more of a breeze. I have so many goals and ideas for my writing. I am so happy to actually be putting in the quality time I need to be successful at this. I am getting closer to finishing out my first big project, which is a novel I have been working on. It is the first of a series and I’m just proud I am getting close to actually completing it.

The unshed tears slowly made their way down her soft cheeks. The woman felt herself crumbling. She wrestled with her thoughts, fought to hold her resolve until all that was left was the distant screams of those left behind.
