For anyone wondering what happened to the Kill Your Darlings essay series, thank you for reading it. At the time I started the series, I was at a low point in my life. My writing reflected anger, bitterness, and jealousy. Ten years later, that negativity is almost gone and I'm much happier. I've learned more from creating than I ever did from complaining. I've complained enough, so the series must go.

Also, my computer does this weird flickering thing when it's on this site, which it doesn't do on other sites. I worry about that. After I Don't Love You Anymore is done, I will fully transition my fictional stories to a different platform.

PM me if you'd like to know where to find my work!
