To see the truth, to see it well (dream operator)

sub: 6 rejects: 5 Wrote a new sci-fi story this week at 4,783 words so far. Should finish the draft tomorrow. Wandered around it. Had no idea where it was going.

I don’t remember those needlesContinue reading “Little accomplishments help break the long depression”
