I dread those meetings with my editor. She is rather harsh. Just the way she looks down on me. I have a new manuscript for her to review. I just cannot predict how she will react. This was our last meeting. This is my go at a new ds106 Sound Effects Story: Tell a story […]
This should be the last piece of media for my Dorothy ds106 story.
