The break is over. Time for a fresh start.
The writing has been a little slow to start this month, but I decided late last month that August would be the perfect time for a fresh start. I’ve had family obligations keeping me busy, and although I wanted to get a lot of writing done in July, it turned out to be unrealistic. OneContinue reading “A fresh start for August”
I didn’t even make it one day. That’s the bad news. (I’ve heard bad news should always come before good news.)

One thing led to another and I just gave up. I couldn’t even handwrite the notes I wanted to make about oneContinue reading “Funny how negotiable non-negotiable is when you’re tired”
I’ll take whatever opportunity I can find for a fresh start.
