Today was a bit, well, mixed up. I posted a post this morning only to realize this evening I wrote about the same subject already…whoops.
So then I posted something else…only to find out I actually posted it back in April and it somehow got reverted back to draft mode, which I don’t remember doing.
Then, in the midst of trying to figure out what to write for today before midnight, I got to thinking. And I’ve come to a decision.
I’m going to postpone tip posts for an indefinite amount of time and instead, test out several ideas I have as serial novels or novellas.
Anyway, just wanted to let you all know. Have a good night and keep on writing!
