Oh, Dear Reader

Oh, dear reader. So, this is a bit of an impromptu post, even though it's something that is always on my brain, it feels like.

I’m Not Serious About This, Am I?

Last year, I wrote a post in February where I talked about my writing goals for the upcoming year. If you fancy a trip down memory lane, hit up here. Before I write any more of this post, I'm going to go read that one and see how I stacked up. *reads the post with a… Continue reading I’m Not Serious About This, Am I?
