TO LOVE OR NOT TO LOVE?

  I don’t know if it’s the weather “à la merde” here in Montreal or if it’s the winter blues because my brain is frozen. I cannot sit down and write. Every writer has a moment where inspiration lets him down. Everyone knows that a blank page has an open heart to blame. Loves makes […]
