SoulScribes: Fishing Fight, Friday Edition!
@vicorva I think we are fishing on Friday? I figured I would send a reminder now just in case you want to but didn't remember. 😊
SoulScribes: MOAR FISHING (writing game in closed alpha)
I think @aldersprig and I are doing fishing today!
I am also supposed to do day job for 5 hours, so we'll see how much actual fishing I get done. One minnow so far!
Apparently ALL of the #SoulScribes fishies wanted to show up to have their portraits done! o_o
I write books and goof off, not necessarily in that order.
