How to keep writing
My writing class has been over for about a month. It was pretty intense. There were deadlines, brain fog, temper tantrums, and frustration.

Where do I go from here? Where? Where?! I tried writing other scenes and then came back to it. Nothing! Not even aContinue reading “What the…Block?”
Are you super critical about your work? I am. As a self professed perfectionist, sometimes I can get in my own way. Does the same thing happen to you?
