As I sit down to write tonight, I'm already irritated because I can't find the list of writing prompts I thought I'd saved somewhere on my laptop. I'm annoyed because the screen is too bright, even when I finally figure out where to go to turn it all the way down. I'm frustrated because I … Continue reading What is my life?
I'm talking about fear, of course. In going through a stack of paper shoved on a shelf, I found what's written below.
