Seeing the Light in the Dark


Writing a story with the dark setting of a post-apocalyptic world is hard for me. It gives me nightmares.

But every time I put the story away, it haunts me. Kind of like an infected tooth. It wants to be finished. When I pick it up, again, the words flow.

The two things I’ve found that help me with this struggle are:

  1. Writing poems for Lexi
  2. Writing a light novella on the side.

Today I’m sharing another of Lexi’s haikus. Hope you like it.
