I didn’t sleep last night. Or, rather, I slept maybe four hours last night. Then between crazy dreams and rambling thoughts that tossed around my head when I was awake, I ended up waking at about 2am – and never going back to sleep. In hopes that tonight that I get some sleep, I present…
Exorcising the Beast
Truthfully…..I’ve been sitting on this post for at least 10 days now. I wrote it in response to a lot that I saw and was feeling and was realizing – then chickened out in posting it. But I feel the need to speak this into the ether – into the universe. In many ways, it…
Months ago, I was listening to a podcast on my commute when one of the people, a writer, commented that the important part of writing is knowing when not to write from a place of pain. Writing from a place of pain and publishing it is just never going to yield the results you want….
