I got married but got divorced six months later. In hindsight, I shouldn't have gotten married after dating a girl for three months. But I'm bipolar and impulsive, so getting married to a total stranger I met in a bar is the type of thing you can expect from me. Anyway, after the divorce she moved out with half the shit in our apartment and I got to stay in it all by myself. The days really got lonely and the nights became unbearable. I spent all my time thinking about us and why things had gone wrong. Until a friend at work told me I should speak to a psychologist to manage my grief. The psychologist told me to fill up my time, that way, I wouldn't be thinking about my ex-wife so much. So I went to my local community college and signed up for a creative writing course. I figured: maybe I could creatively write my ex-wife out of my life.

I totally agree with you, Michele. Writing is very therapeutic. By the end of the story the protagonist will write something true, and feel better about himself. Thank you for taking the time to read me, Michele.
