Happy 2023, friends! I am alive! Reports of my untimely demise were greatly exaggerated. Although, a part of me has been put to rest ever since I had my baby girl last May. Okay, I swear I’m not being melodramatic (no more than usual). Let me explain.

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Annwyn Park + Life Update

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Your Writing Craft
The best advice I can offer you is to not be your worst enemy. You’ll always find someone out there who is better (or more experienced) than you are.

Remember, if you’re writing, you’re constantly growing your craft. It won’t happen overnight. It’s going to take time, hard work, and little thanks in the beginning (sometimes longer).
