The Writing Palliative
Writing calms me down and relieves my pain.
I’ve been writing on a daily basis now for about 11 years. I made it a habit because I wanted to make a living as a writer. Well, if you count the correspondence I write at work as customer service, then that counts as writing for money.
Since March, I’ve been dealing with a persistent cough most likely due to silent heartburn, or GERD. The cough keeps me up at night and so to avoid rousing other people from their sleep, I’m here, writing.
