Cat’s Got Class

Coming Soon…Can I Sleep First?

Yup, I was down to the wire, but met my Camp NaNoWriMo goal again in July. 3630 more minutes on Book II of The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone. I’m working hard to get it out to you this Fall! …but now it’s Nighty-night time. Zzzzzz

A Couple Key quotes- Miss Livingstone Book I

“The journey for knowledge and the experience of the heart is a path worth pursuing, my dear. All the mechanisms in the world can’t replace what you know and feel.” -Father

“So many thinking people are taken with mere mechanism and dry observation. I would be ever grateful that he brought me to be with him in the West — for education, and affection.” -Miss Livingstone

Woot! I Won Camp NaNo!

Seventy-six hours of editing in 30 days! My goal was 75. It was a lot of work, but I’ve really got a handle on the second book in my Witty Miss Livingstone series and a better grasp of the full story arc of the other 3 books to…
