The Logos & Mythos blog is an area to share what works in my writing process as well as what I have learned on my journey.

I do this not to censor you or keep out negative comments, but to protect my entire Fellowship of Friends, including the younger ones.

While I encourage parents to share my website and blog with their children, especially if they love to write or read, I urge caution. While I will never knowingly post content on my site that I would not allow my own children to see, what I deem “appropriate” may not match exactly with what you deem “appropriate.” As with anything online, I urge parents to preview my site and blog posts before sharing them with their children.

Any external web links should be previewed as well. The internet changes every moment, and I cannot be responsible for a change in another site’s content.
