While trawling Facebook today, I came across this apt comment:
😂 Now I have to wonder who on earth would accept ballots as stakes. . . . #brbnewstoryidea
Yes, this election has been anything but uplifting, and still not having closure to it is aggravating. I'm glad someone can find something in it to make us smile.
Remember, it's okay to feel and express the things you feel, both verbally and in writing. At the same time, feeling stuck in hopelessness and frustration stinks, and most people don't like reading things that make them feel that way. So every once in a while, try turning a mischievous eye on your subject. It'll do your writing—and your soul—some good.
