In Disguise

I recently left my old gym in favor of a new one, and have been making an effort to eat better. I'm in decent shape, but would like to lose a couple of pounds and improve my strength. All about that self improvement, folks. And then, as I was hitting my stride, I got struck... Continue Reading →

Favorite Tropes

Writers are often advised to avoid certain tropes in their writing, but let's face it... some tropes/cliches are unavoidable. And some are irresistible!
