Funky Writing

I’ve been in a bit of a writing funk lately.  The thing is, unlike most writing funks, I know exactly why I can’t produce.  Some members of my husband’s family are currently dealing with some pretty scary shit, which is drudging up a lot of painful memories of my own.  This is as far as I … More Funky Writing
