Second story publication of 2018

/ May 21st, 2018 / No Comments »

The end of a chapter in my writing career

/ May 2nd, 2016 / No Comments »

Since mid-April, I’ve started a new chapter.   Not so much in any particular writing project, of which I have several ongoing, but in my writing life as a whole.   This “new chapter” feeling comes not from fresh goals I’ve set for myself, but
