The Writer and the Stress Monster
The start of school this year as been harder than usual. I haven't gotten much writing done in the last five weeks. I haven't gotten much done at all.

The Lost Writer

I did make it in to the land of the cognizant for a couple of hours to watch Deadpool with a friend. (Great … Continue reading Writer and the Cold
