Seems unlikely, but what happens once Connor Crow takes on his latest case is even more astounding.
A short story from my #MFA thesis that's been picked up by a new, exciting, and local literary mag is just what your midday needs... I promise.
I am sorry.
I am sorry that you desperately tried to fix others, when your own hands were shaking. Stop for a minute. Forgive yourself . You have been a little too hard on yourself lately. I know you are trying to grow into a new being but you gotta be patient. Everything of value takes time to build. Stop feeling like something is wrong with you; you dont need to guilt trip yourself. You don't have to blame yourself for the mistakes others make.
I am sorry i didn't give you enough time to heal, that i let you seal wounds of everyone else whilst your own were bleeding. I am sorry that there were days when smiling hurt, but you forced yourself to laugh. I am sorry that you gave all your time and effort to people who didn't give you back. I am fucking sorry that you opened up to people who ended up judging you. I am sorry that there were times when you were suffocating and wanted to let it out, but i stopped you from crying. I am sorry that sometimes you cried yourself to sleep that no one gave a fuck. I am sorry that the people whom you trusted once, are betrayer now.
I am sorry that i never let you bloom properly. I know sometimes you don't know what you are feeling, there's too much going in your head. But hey you aren't alone. And it's okay to feel that shit.
You have already faced the demons, now you are just trying to find the right path. Thank you for being so patient and transparent, that the world sees you when you feel invisible.
And sorry for all the time, that i didn't love you, like you deserved to be loved.
I appreciate your heart and your stubbornness. Take care.

most of the struggle in our lives, I think, comes from the fear of what people might think of us. thinking what people will think of me has never helped a single soul but it sure has crippled many. you’ve gotta accept that you can’t change what people think you are, you can only be who you are and trust that person. you can’t aim for making world be in love with you, you can only love you and a few more people who love you toO /Li
Insecurity has become a buzzword these days. And the surprising part is that its becoming almost a badge of honor, a way of confessing our humility and self awareness. But when we really pause and think about the problem, we see that its a pretty deep seated issue. Why are we always so obsessively self aware? And why are we so consumed with how others see us? How do we battle insecurity in a culture where social media constantly puts us on the stage?
At the heart of it, insecurity is an obsession with the self. More specifically, its an obsession with our own ability to prop up a certain image, an image that makes us feel strong, confident and worthy. The ironic thing about it is that as much as we try to prop up a certain self image, insecurity causes us to be tied to the responses of others around us. We are always enslaved to their opinions and perspective, no matter how tough and independent we try to come across.
This is why truly dealing with the issue starts with asking the question: where do I get my sense of self? Who’s perspective is the one that actually matters? And how does the story of Jesus both shatter and rebuild my sense of self?

Well yesterday was such a gorgeous day out that I put my writing aside and got out my fishing rod again. My skin now a little burnt and my mind calm again from a day at the river I am now ready to write again.
I am at the point in my first draft where a pivotal loss is coming to my character that will set her on her journey to save her world from evil. The path she will take will have her crossing paths and creating allies she never thought possible.
Writing has become a huge part of my life this past while and I wanted to give you all a peak into my work shop.
I do not have a desk.
I cannot afford epic writing software. But my set up consists of my imagination, a shelf from my book shelf on my reading chair to make a 'desk' and my information book on #projectdarkmoon . I also always love to have my current read with me so when my mind gets too out of sorts I can read and realign my thoughts.
A reader proposed PART FIVE of JB’s date. Here at the Candy Shop, our readers’ thoughts are a major part of what we write about. Do you feel that JBs date is unfinished??? Want more??Vote in our story!
Objective Complete: One of the goals when I bought the bookstore was to connect the store and our customers with a best-selling author. After having 27 awesome local authors visit the store in the past year. I will be hosting an event with our first National Best-Selling author, Devin Murphy!
