Never Forget Where You Started

I suffered from a tiny cold this past week. The sickness killed my drive to do any work with my writing or my art. I only wanted to sit around and watch Criminal Minds. (I started all the way from season 1 episode 1. You don't want to know how far I got...it's amazing how …

Thursday Tiny Tale 8

I took a sip of the dark liquid and couldn't understand a human's desire for the horrid drink.
