And then, I vomited. Right then and there. All the nasty stuff I had been harboring for so long projected out of my body and there Brook was, ready to catch it.
At age 17, I committed to college to study creative writing. At age 19, I started work on a new novel. At age 21, I graduated with a minor in Creative Writing and bookshelves lined with writing help books. And now, I sit at home on my laptop and do all sorts of "productive" things— except write.
I did not want to come back home. But I am so glad I did.
