    I'm Thankful For The Overflow

    Sometimes it gets rather overwhelming, all the ideas for stories I get. I tried to put out a NaNoWriMo novel a few years ago, but that rigid time frame and the discipline it takes just doesn't mesh with my habits or my style. My stories usually have to simmer a while, maybe cool...
