Self-rejection

Self-rejection sounds like the great name for a poem, but my own self-doubt won’t even permit me to pen a few awkward lines.

A 6th Letter from Secrets

Why hello there and welcome to another letter together. For those who have recently started following, instead of answering blogging award questions, I take a different approach to suit my own personal style. I prefer to write a letter, usually providing some insight into my creative process behind a piece that I have recently posted.Continue reading “A 6th Letter from Secrets”
