Update 03.12.14 
Winter Storm Vulcan has hit Upstate NY!
Blizzard conditions, white outs and 45 mph winds. 
Being stuck inside for 4 months has given me a serious case of 
"Crazy Cabin Fever"
{Good thing I'm a writer, otherwise all this talking to myself would seem weird.}

Writing News:
~ Learning a bit of Latin
~ Playing around with a new story idea that involves Witches and Magic
~ Becoming more interested in this new "Steampunk" style, 
although I'm not sure I understand it all yet.
~ Right now, I really want to pick up "Blinding" again
as the current weather deems it appropriate.
~Written a little poetry
~Been doing my 365 Day Blog Challenge
~Started working on a Memoir a few weeks ago
It should be... interesting when complete.
