I have no tasks except writing-related work to do today. Meeting a friend to brainstorm. Good heavens–is that Bon Jovi on an Advil commercial? Sorry–tangent. I’m meeting a friend to brainstorm, and I’m writing. I have two ideas I’m working on right now, and one is starting to flesh itself out as if it’s meant […]

Hello, Monday
