Good Grief––Are you still here?

It’s been ages since I’ve written a blog post. So much has happened, so much has changed. This blog has evolved, over and over and funnily enough here we are going full circle. I’m back here because I want to talk about grief. This was my outlet when my...

NaNoWriMo Days 10, 11 and 12 Falling Behind
