Hi kids. I have no idea what I'm doing. Absolutely none. What. So. Ever. My focus bounces constantly between work, to school, to writing, back to work again. I've found that I can only handle two of the three at a time. For the beginning to the middle of 2018, I chose work and writing. … Continue reading The Constant Process of Re-Evaluation

And here we are again, with yet another addition to the Fearful Flash Fiction family.

Wanna hear a secret? I despise writing dialogue.
