I left the only writer forums I was a member of back in September and October of 2018. Life since then has been good.
So. I kind of burned some bridges yesterday. I think that’s a good thing, in this particular case. I’ve been dealing with some angst about KB for a while as I’m sure some of my previous posts here have made clear, and it had all turned into an emotional sinkhole and I needed to climbContinue reading “Burning bridges and all that”

Why do I do this to myself? Anyway, down to 9 pages of posts and 2 of those pages are deletedContinue reading “Stuck in some kind of OCD loop right now”
