June is here!

I finished Story-a-Day May! I wrote every single day and ended up with probably 29 stories or scenes I can polish up or use somewhere.

To state the obvious, I haven’t posted here in a good long time. I could say I’ve been busy. But we’re all busy. I think I’ve developed a bit of a phobia about blogging. You can’t have missed the vitriol spewed over the Internet. Just take a look at the Facebook fan page for the … Continue reading
