Insight Into My NaNoWriMo Project Featuring Periods

Periods suck. No, not the punctuation, my friends. Yes, that's right, I'm talking about the monthly cycle that plagues vaginas and the humans that own themĀ for over half of their life.

This book was freakin' awesome. *Minor spoilers abound after this point* It was particularly awesome because I had absolutely no idea what… Continue reading A Promise of Fire
