Week in Short

I'm going camping starting Sunday. Five days with no showers, no bathrooms, no internet, and most importantly, no writing. Though of course I'll be taking along a notebook and pencil. I'll schedule posts tomorrow before I leave but there will be no teaser or Week in Short.

Song of the week: I'll Make a Man Out of You from the movie Mulan. I'm addicted to it right now. I blame Mae for sharing an epic Doctor Who video set to the song. I swear the chorus could actually have been written for the Doctor.

This is the part where I usually talk about how my writing is going. I'm going to skip that today and talk about it when I get back. Hopefully by then I'll have decided what's going where.

Have an awesome weekend!
