Here is this week’s list of links from my favourite corners of the web.
Yesterday I met a nice man named George McNeese on Twitter who is looking for other short story writers to connect with. Click on the links in the last sentence and say hello if you write short stories in any genre or if you know of anyone else who does. I’m hoping we can form a friendly community online together in the future.

How to Manage Chronic Pain Through a Minimalistic Lifestyle via achvoice. I never would have thought to make the connection between these two things.
My Voice Got Deeper. Suddenly, People Listened. Drop everything you’re doing and go read this now.
How Almost Dying Showed Me That I Wanted to Live via dlhampton. This link includes references to a suicide attempt for anyone who needs a trigger warning. I thought the author did a wonderful job of explaining what was going on in her mind at the time and how she’s changed since then.
