I know my perceived lack of writing recently has been a huge disappointment to all my fans (see also: my aunts). But fear not, dear Earthlings! Like that single set of footprints in the sand, I have not left you. In fact, I have been poking into the writing world a bit more to see what it might hold for me. I have recently had two things “published” on two different sites. It is difficult to say what this actually means. At first, I was excited, but then I realized it wasn’t actually that hard and maybe they just accept any old crap. In either case, I am asking… nay!… allowing you to read them now.
The first is an old post that you may have read called “Sunshine People,” which has been posted on Better Humans, an inspirationy/self-helpy publication that is part of a site called Medium. The second is my first foray into the world of fiction. A silly short story written with inspiration and permission from a special friend of mine. I’ve entered it into a contest on a site called Vocal. I have very low expectations, but it was fun to write, so whatever!
I would greatly appreciate it if you have a couple minutes to check them out! I hate self-promoting, but if you want, you can make an account on Medium and click “follow.” This will help me a lot and, who knows, perhaps I will be writing more in the near future. Let me know what you think! Also let me know if you have any ideas for what I should write or where I should submit. I’m open to feedback and advice. Thanks, and much love!

P.S. Life update, if you care: things are good. Still wearing masks. Still no covid here. Ran a half marathon. Seeing a girl. Missing home. Still trying to figure out what to do next year… maybe more writing.
