    LOL! Yours looks so neat and tidy compared to mine! Currently, my 8 seating dining table is FULL of stuff like that for my manuscript! Piled up, it is well over half a foot thick. Today is my day of attempting to organize "the shtuff."

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
