    Thank you for writing this. I’ve been having a hard time finding the spark to get behind a keyboard lately, there have been some life changing events in my life, filling me with doubts. You helped me to remember, “a writer writes”. Thank you for continuing to contribute, you have already done so much. It’s good to see you still writing.
