    Dramatic Creative Blockage Talk

    GUYS! There’s a HOUSE OF FALLING EMBERS interview over at The Sunflower Scribbles. Go read it. ๐Ÿ˜€ So…real talk? Things have not gone very well creatively for me this year.

I was so busy, I barely took the time to check in on my other ideas. So naturally, when I opened that gate, I got…
