Modesty

This Thing Called Modesty Prologue I started blogging in 2008, mostly short, tentative, stuttering posts. In 2010ish, blessed with some free time away from work, I was encouraged to write, so I sat me down and began. The lesson was swift and cruel. I found I had no idea how to write. Most…
