Writing Session 1: English BreakfastAuthor/Genre: JD/rom suspenseWords written:  71Total Words:  7,197Time Spent:  15 minutes (break)  Notes: Not quite the blazing start I’d hoped for this morning, but the particular style of writing required for this little section takes more work, or it does for me.
