Women and Words Overview

4-10 Nov. 2017


Jove had a NaNoWriNoMo day because of tech issues; Andi would like someone in Australia to invite her for Christmas so she can experience it in shorts but agrees with Jove that an epic road trip across Australia would be cool, too. Also, serial fiction is seriously awesome.


4 Nov.: Women and Wordster Ann Etter did a reader’s perspective on books with family themes.
