For the last year I've been struggling with my writing. Between life getting in the way and the loss of  my awesome critique partners due to their lives getting in the way of their writing, I've been floundering. Finding a new critique group has taken a few adjustments and getting used to. Their styles vary … Continue reading Delight Yourself in the Lord
