What Are You Writing?

that's no stairway to heavenThis site has 20 to 50 visitors a day (the 50 happens on Fridays.)

I’d love it if every one of you would do me the huge favor of leaving a comment with a note about your current writing project. I’m curious what y’all are doing as writers, not just readers.

If you like, you can also share whether it’s going well or badly, and why you think that might be the case.

Maybe we’ll get 20 to 50 comments. You are all working on something, right?
