What’s Up?

I haven’t been writing for a while. After publishing my first book I was inconsistent in writing in general and then I found myself turning inward. In most seasons of my life, I’ve been able to keep a steady flow of “input” and the result is a steady flow of “output.” I’m getting filled up and…
