Dead Reckoning

“So how’s the writing going?” An innocent question asked out of genuine care and interest pierces my heart. As any writer probably knows, any writer who hasn’t been writing, because… because. This simple question shines an unwelcome light into the darkest recesses of my cringing soul, through the secret back entrance that was foolishly left […]

Sleeping Duck

So I just got home from work and it’s already after 11pm. We had a big reception this evening which I had to do a lot of prep and coordination for, then clean up after, so it was a VERY long day! I simply don’t have time or energy to do justice to the topic […]
