Snippet Sunday – Let It Go and Come Alive

I’ve done a sad amount of story writing this past week, and what I do have is either full of spoilers or not particularly well-written (the latter is probably mostly me being self-conscious, but whatever), so instead you’re getting the beginning of a blog post I shared Friday on the group blog I’m part of, Our Mind Palace.
