Written by    Nov 17, 2017

“People don’t like reading long things,” they’d say. I’d hear the echoes around me, or in my head when I’d sit down to write: “Use short paragraphs, and don’t write too much. This will be cool,” they’d whisper, “This will be fun.” Well, y’all, fine. This blog will be a little shorter than my normal ones. Mostly because as I write this, I have to […]
