It's been a while since I posted (read: 6 months). Sorry about that. The thing is, I'm not entirely sure if Rachel Also Writes has a place in my life at the moment. When I started this blog, I was writing A LOT and I wanted a platform to share what I was working on … Continue reading Where Do We Go From Here?
This July, I reread Harry Potter for the first time since I was younger. I loved Harry Potter when I first read it, but I don't think I ever actually reread them (at least not the later three books) after they first came out. I've watched the movies plenty of times, but for some reason I never got … Continue reading A Successful July

I wish I could start this WIPpet Wednesday gushing about how productive I've been and how many words I've written. But I can't.
