If I’m being transparent, life’s got me in a metaphorical choke-hold. I agree, it’s influencing the overall tone in my writing and it’s gotten rather condescending.
You’re 100% right though.
There are plenty of benefits writing and, of course, the stance I took in this article is completely irrational. Satire is sort of my way of coping. This speaks to what you said about it being a process — an outlet of ideas and, more importantly, emotion.
I appreciate the thoughtful comment and your concern. I don’t plan on being this crabby forever!
