Wow, I loved reading every line of this.
Maybe I should consider embracing the indie-ness of my writing instead of trying to cover it up. There's been an ongoing debate in my mind of whether to embrace my own weird-taboo-voice or to write in a safe, more conforming way.
I think the weird, personal, and uncomfortable stories are so much more interesting to read. I hope you're right, and this space upholds that.
