I’m really excited about the short stories I’m working on now. They’re right up my alley – alternate history; supernatural; action ^_^.
Chipping away at them made me think about other writers who may be doing the same. Not to mention NaNoWriMo 2020 is underway (Nov 1 – 30).

It’s okay, the words will come. Just start. When you need some time, step away. It really is okay :).
