Hello. I'm back but only for a minute or two. You see, I sprained my stupid wrist. At work. Picking up a book. I've had some pain and stuff. Now, I feel like I'm back to full typing speed. Sadly, I'm tapping out for a bit because I was accepted to a residency!! My first … Continue reading What’s Been Up…
On Account of My Sheer Stupidity
At this point, how dumb can you get?
Let’s Talk About Ghosts, Man.
I’ve had an idea for a ghost story in my head for a year or so now. Then, I sprained my wrist and became a hunt and peck typist., of which I am not. Thus, it became hard to type forever.

Critiques without Tears (part 2)
(being published earlier than normal-by popular request!!) Then, it happened... I joined not one but THREE different critique groups. Oh, my disease to be liked and to please overcame any rational thought. I tried to do the run around and help everyone because I was getting what I wanted, what I thought I needed-FEEDBACK! People … Continue reading Critiques without Tears (part 2)
