Writing Life Update~Different Layout

I’m on a roll with writing several days in a row and I hope to keep it up for as long as possible. Some of these short stories will become the Patreon monthly story.

I AM writing which is great! I’ve been really inspired lately and it’s taking me no time at all to get a couple hundred to over a thousand words written.
