It's been a while... again

Sometimes I just have nothing to say... okay, that ain't true, but I feel in terms of writing there's little I haven't said yet. My "insights" may just work for me...

Shattered Fears by Ulff Lehmann
I wish I knew... health issues make regular writing nigh impossible. I write when I can, and am past the 2/3s mark in the second draft.

Jen/The Tolkien Gal/ジェニファー Hello Ulff! Thanks for the friend request. Your book looks awesome, by the way!
