For being the shortest month of the year, did February drag on for anyone else? I mean, jeez!
I have been writing…. A LOT. Like, seriously, I’m pretty sure there isn’t a day this month where I didn’t write something. Which is good! We also had a lot of upheaval at work this month, so I didn’t read as much as I would have liked to. But alas.
I published two short stories on Patreon in February, one of which is FREE to download! I highly recommend you subscribe and read all of them, but I’m biased. If you can’t subscribe, you can buy them on my Gumroad a month after they release on Patreon!
