I hate adding yet another 0 to my thread... But y'all, I slept through my NaNo alarm (🤦‍♀️), been writing freelance articles all day, and we got more bad news about family. (Seriously, make it stop...) Excuses, excuses, I know. But I'll try again tomorrow.

Day 12 was the third day in a row of zero words on my project. Woke up late, again, and worked all day. Nearly 4,000 words behind. Goals for the weekend/coming week: Catch up, and wake up earlier to do the words. Do the words, Mel!
