I Am Officially Back

1 Dec

Hello people of the world! I am now returned for the rest of the year!! Hooray! INTERNET PARTY!!
And yes I am painfully aware of my fail to keep up with the blog in November, but it’s a fresh month and a fresh start. I am back on track to posting every day, and the Word of the Week will be continued. :3 (Jessie says she also wants in on the fun so every once in a while she will be putting her paws up on the keyboard.)
To all of you NaNoWriMo people, I sadly didn’t win, but I gave it my best shot and it was a great learning experience. I really enjoyed it and next year I will be trying again, fingers crossed! Yes, I am sad that I wasn’t able to win, no, I do not regret spending all my time on NaNoWriMo and not here, but you weren’t forgotten!! I would give you all my readers hugs so you know how much I love you guys but my computer screen is blocking the way. Stupid computer.
But anyway, the game is back on. The future will be filled with entertaining tales of the school year and all the stupid things that come along with the holidays. Enjoy!
