A Writer’s Ego

I’m a horrible, narcissistic, egotistical human being. I think people care about my experiences and what I have created. I feel I am gifting people with insight when I write. Now, there are numerous times, especially lately, where really I’m writing for my own…

Brave

An aside: as I take care of my uncle and aunt’s pets, I’ve had a realization: I have lost my touch. Slowly I lose my admiratn for these creatures as they poop on the carpet despite being let out. The cat went into full…
