Interesting that you say that. This piece is definitely more emotional, and also the one that has done the best. I’ve had two different publications ask me about republishing it on their site. It made me wonder if the emotional aspect is what’s missing from other things I’ve written. I believe it is, especially now that you’ve helped confirm my suspicions, but I’m not sure how to go about adding more emotion when I’m not emotional. At all.

Wife and mom first. Writing, homeschooling, Muay Thai, and BJJ fill in the rest.
