No Patience Today.

No Patience Today.

Once a freaking ‘gain there are formatting issues. I have a great piece planned for today, but I’m not in the mood to have it come out in a big, messy jumble. Writers are funny about things like that. We have paragraph breaks for a REASON. I’ll save the cool article on losing yourself in […]

Victor Vasnetsov. The Magic Carpet. 1880. Oil on canvas. The Art Museum of Nizhniy Novgorod, Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia For a time, my critique partners and I were having a blast writing haiku poetry.
