#MicroCommunity

The absolute best thing about a writing community is the support you get from other writers. You quickly realize that you are not the only one struggling to write anything.

Labors of Love and Necessary Life

(Picture Credit HERE) Authors Note: Every author has a labor of love that gets trashed over and over again. It's like witnessing a horrible accident and being unable to do anything about it. The story that follows is my abused child. It has been rejected over 7 times, but I still have faith in it.... Continue Reading →

Warning, Movie Spoilers Ahead!!!
