    What I’m Learning About Self-Care | Writer’s Perspective (Part 1)

    The term "self-care" has been on the lips of many for some time, but not as often as since the election of 2016.

Putting the election aside, I want to look at self-care from a writer's perspective. Based on my working and writing life experiences, I'll share bad choices I made in caring for myself. Over the last 14 months have had time to ruminate over the past and how it played a part in my current situation.
