When I was an aspiring writer growing up, as a way to develop our storytelling skills, my friends and I all had a game we would play. We called the game “Prove It”.

Sorry, gang. As you may or may not have noticed, I have not been around WA lately. I have been dealing with a family emergency that virtually turned our world upside down.

I have been a physical, emotional, and spiritual wreck for weeks, as has my wife.I am back, however, and I wanted to use that experi
