    I have a few work in progresses!

    I feel like I'll never finish them, but here's for hoping. Scrivener seems to be helping a lot. It's actually a pretty great program.

    I've been writing since I was in 7th grade.

    I wrote a full (poorly written) book. now, I can't find myself to like anything I write and I can barely write a full paragraph without shutting the laptop or crumpling up the paper. Writing has been a part of me for a long time and it's slowly fading.

    It left as quickly as it came.

    It was a flash of light in a dark Midwestern sky captivating every vessel in my heart as the world around me slowly illuminated. Now it falls in an empty rhythm on the black in the pavement. We argue at the stop lights. There's nothing left of this.
