Hey! πŸ˜ƒ Quick update I'm not sure you're ready for Chapter 9. I wasn't! Things get serious for B. And for me, too! I'm starting to grok this writer thing, so I'm becoming more aware that this is just the first draft and the final work will need several rounds of editing anyway. Hopefully, this will allow me to write a bit faster. One more thing: from now on only subscribers will be able to see public posts on williamghelfi.com. This won't change anything for you, because you receive a direct...

A mom, seen from the side, her face in the shadows, keeps a newborn close to her heart.

Hey! πŸ˜ƒ Quick update The book is going fine. I'm staying consistent, and I'm writing at least 300 words most days of the week. The "nightmare chapters", as I call them, are almost finished. There's one more, Chapter 7, then things should become easier to write emotionally speaking. Enough messing around! Here's "Chapter 6: Mom". Old friends, new nightmares. From now on, I'm going to directly share the permalink instead of the text of the whole chapter. Read the latest version right from the...
