Hello everyone,

I won’t be posting this week but I will be posting next week. Catch up on your writing and check up on some of my previous posts. I know that many of you will be having Spring Break so use that time wisely. I plan to catch up on my writing and try to figure out why WordPress isn’t allowing me to post pictures.

I also want to start reading a new book.  Maybe I will have to check on Tom Green’s Fault of Our Stars.
