Branding My Skin With Fear – Literary Agents

Hey guys, I hope you're all well. As always, Jen here. In February, I started this blog to write solely about the writing journey as an aspiring author.

Colder Than Winter, Meaner Than Demons

  Hello everyone, Jen here. Once again, this week, I found myself where I didn't want to be.

Shining In The Truth of Me

Hello everyone, Jen here after a small hiatus. Let's get right into it, as I've no idea of a smooth transition into this topic.
