Ghostwriters Have Feelings (Too)
We Are (Unique) Selves! — Writing is a solitary pursuit. Most of us writers enjoy our time alone sitting behind the bush to see people dancing by the fire.

I have learned so much. — Experiencing a full month of frequently writing stories on Medium changes the way I look at others — as well as the way I see myself. The communities within the platform are very supportive. I just could not think of anywhere else to be besides here on Medium. At first…
Lamenting over the Loss of Free Will

Dating, Economy, and The Politics
Yes, The Politics with capital T, because why not? — I am not opening this story with any snarky remark. I am only going to say, “Welcome to the world of options!
