I credit nanowrimo for this one because it motivated me to write, write, write without looking back. Sure, my novel is only barely readable, but it’s there. It’s a story. It has a beginning, an end, and a plot somewhere in there. And I think my next one will be a little better mayhaps.

How I did it: I finally beat this game. It took me entirely too long, but I it happened. There are several ways to escape the island, but what worked for me was building my own raft on the beach past the the savannah tree house. Read how I did it…
How I did it: Our backyard soil was poor, so we built raised beds and filled them with compost, black cow, and peat. We planted radishes, peas, broccoli, and turnips. We harvested the radishes and turnips (they were great!), and the broccoli and peas are still growing. Plus, it looks really pretty in a boring backyard. :) Read how I did it…
It wasn’t worth it because I ended up not going into my studio hardly at all. It just wasn’t comfortable. So I say this, your studio should be whatever is comfortable to you. If your work requires a lot of space and organization, then go for it. But some people might feel more relaxed working at their kitchen table or in their wood shop. It’s all up to you. A studio was not necessary for me and that room is now in the process of becoming a lounge. ;)
I scrapped my first draft and I’m trying again. I don’t write everyday like I should and it’s starting to look bleak.
