It’s Just Me and My Word Children.

Parents. I don’t know how you do it. After just a taste of it, I find it difficult and mentally draining. Okay, so I haven’t actually been doing any babysitting, nor have I adopted any kids. The taste that I speak of is actually my writing — my “Word Children”, if you will. I have […]
