Let Go Of The Outcome

Hey, lovelies. So, I'm slowly getting back into the writing groove again. After struggling with some mental health stuff for...a while, I didn't realize that it had seeped into my confidence as a writer, as well.

The Darker Side of a Dream

My boyfriend is really lovely in that he's super supportive when it comes to my writing career. And it includes all facets of it: cooking dinner so I can finishing up drafting a short story, listening to my confusing ramblings as I try to verbally work out plot holes as I'm editing my novels (even… Continue reading The Darker Side of a Dream
