Jack pot




I've been in the dumps lately, but recently started writing again. Remains to be seen if I can keep it up.

I'm trying to pull myself back up...

And not just for fiction writing, which I've been struggling to find the motivation for, but for Op-Eds and even LTEs. I wrote one of the latter trying to expose the outright lies used against a Dem NC Senate candidate, e-mailed it to the local paper a good week before the election, and it never made it to print. And every day that I checked the (online) paper, I was barraged with ads for said lying Republican.

I've tried not to assign ulterior motives to their refusal to publish, because I didn't didn't try to water that letter down, and I understand there are limits. But it really pissed me off.
