Out With The Old, In With The New

A Dose of Adulting

When you write a book, it's amazing. Or at least, I find it amazing - a sense of rightness, of knowing that this is what I'm meant to be doing. I'm not really me if I'm not crafting a world, a story, pushing characters and polishing sentences. It's hard work, but it's the best kind… Continue reading A Dose of Adulting
