I’ve been going through a scary time in my personal life. But that’s my personal life, not my professional life, right?
When I sit down at my desk at the day job to work, when I sit down at my desk at home to write…the fear creeps in. Sometimes we forget—or, at least, sometimes I forget—that the mind we use to work, to create, is the same mind we use to cope with the rest of our lives.
The support we have around us, friends and family, can be critical to being able to set aside the chaos of our lives when we sit down to write. When I sit down to write.

Until next time,
