When you can’t get past an experience

  I had my first DNF (Did Not Finish) today. The reader couldn’t get past THAT Scene. You know the one that shan’t ever be mentioned here or over on Facebook. I tried to encourage her to keep reading, to reassure her that life gets better for the people she had taken into her heart. […]
