That Time I Quit Writing

That time I quit writing… Have you ever given up on a dream? I don’t mean you had a bad few days, and decided you couldn’t do it, then when friends rallied around you with nice words of encouragement, and some pics of funny cats, a video of a baby goat, you picked up that […]
