Identifying That Place

September 22, 2021 I tend to write a lot at night. Very late at night. It looks more like scribbles than physical words. As of late the writing-self-challenge has been to locate that place. We all have a place. You know that place! When the sun starts to set mentally things about us begin to change and something from a different place begins to consume our presence. That place. As a writer I’m trying to identify it. To locate the trail. To understand the transitions. To document the...
