I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Homophonic Monday - U, V, W, X and Nothing for Z

My NaNo word count stands at...(drum roll please) 22,258.

This is the end of Homophonic Monday. I hope, if nothing more it's been a bit humorous and/or interesting.

You're sure to be able to find your way, unlike those in the days of yore, or wore armor when they went to war; the compasses went crazy!
