the long wait

It's been 13 days since the PitchWars submission window first opened and, if you're anything like me, you're feeling the anticipation.

Draft 4 Update: Hooray for Summer!

Hello again! As expected, I have read two books since last week's post. I finished The Archived and read Matched. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't all that great, to be honest.
