Writing in Public – Day 11 – 4theWords is Back!

I’ve become addicted to writing on 4thewords.com. It was down for three planned days for a complete upgrade and I missed it powerfully. I think if you check the writing numbers you’ll see how my productivity suffered. So what is 4theWords? According to their Wiki: “4theWords is a roleplaying game, in which you accomplish battles…

Writing in Public – Day 9 – Arctic Story Underway

I’m planning to backpack for my birthday this year so I’m practicing backpacking while Steve runs. My pack and boots are holding up well. Steve bought a new backpack for himself and on Thursday we will get him some boots and the few items we still need for a comfortable night in the woods. The…

Writing in Public Day 3
