Being a human is rough sometimes. I’ve been one for thirty something years and I still screw it up from time to time…ok, maybe a bit more often.
Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual. People are messy. Being one is difficult. Being a *good* one? Even moreso. But we have to try. Because that’s how we learn and grow and get better at it. Practice.
There’s a situation going on right now involving myself and another writer. Someone that I still hold in high regard. We had a decent relationship, but things soured, as they sometimes do. For my part in the situation at hand, I am truly sorry. I wish things could have turned out differently. But here we are.
What I would like to request, if at all possible, is for the community to move past this.
I don’t want divisiveness in a genre I’ve poured my heart into. I’ve tried (and succeeded often) at being a good citizen. I’ve made mistakes, too, but I try to learn from them, and that includes these most recent events. Please let me do that work in peace. I’d like to get back to writing as soon as possible.
Thanks for reading,
