Sandbagging is key in my writing process.
Mental health bilge accumulates around my person daily. Make no mistake, anxiety, panic and OCD are filthy disorders, and sometimes their seepage is extreme.
In these emergencies, the sandbags are hauled in and placed strategically around my stories. Yesterday, it was my Cozy Mystery’s turn to be protected against my mental sludge.
My work will always reflect my battles, but it will not be spoilt by the gore.
