CW Write-a-thon: Week 4

Zoinks. This was a hard week, but I managed another 900, 1000, and 700 words, for a week four total of 5200. The four-week total is 22,100, which is 3600 more than I wrote in all of last year's WAT, and 1000 more words than I had written by this point in my Clarion West experience.

Ari laughed. “I’ve come from the future,” she said in a mock-spooky voice.
You can still sponsor me or a writer similar to me here. Every little bit helps!
