If you're living on this side of Earth, you've heard that Harry and Meghan have decided to significantly change their status with the royal family. (I won't link to any articles because, whew chile, the bias.) In other words, H&M want to step back from being senior members of the royal family, become financially independent, [...]
I haven't written anything creatively in a long while. Fiction is my thing, my jam. You know that. But it's been excessively hard for me to hunker and write. I have some suspicions as to why. Let's talk them over. No inspo. Like most artists, inspiration is so huge for me. I need that flow, [...]
