My name is Victoria, but most of my friends and family call me Tori. Feel free to do the same.

If I can't manage to find it in me to work on anything though, I'll take some time out to do something else without thinking about writing for a few days (read, watch movies, etc). By the time I've done that, I'm usually ready to work on at least one of the pieces I have on the go again.(less)

#WriterWednesday: #WritersLife + Writerly #Quotes - #AmWriting 12-08-20

When I first learned I'd be without internet for a large chunk of time in July, I had visions of getting plenty of uninterrupted writing time.  Well, it didn't quite work out like that.  I did get some writing in though - even if not as much as I'd planned - and finished the first draft of one of the shorter stories I'd started last year, plus wrote a couple of new poems, so I'm pleased with that.
