Goals for 2021-2022

Now that my 2020-2021 writing year has come to an end, I can feel like I've let go of one more level of 2020. I'm no longer constantly ghosted by what my year looked like then, as I prepare for my 2021-2022 writing year to begin. This year is a little different for me than... Continue Reading →
