Write 31 Days-2018

Welcome, beloved readers.

This year I’m doing something a bit different. Because I haven’t written fictional prose in quite a while, I decided I’d start writing a story, just breaking it into rough sections daily. It could possibly turn into a short story or novella (that’s always the dream, right?), or it could just stagnate here as a failed attempt to follow my inspiration. We’ll see in a month’s time, won’t we?
