#100WritingDays Roundup 3: Three short stories fresh from the oven! Revealing human emotions in all its raw, ugly, beautiful glory. And also some thoughts on human traits and books. | A Chronic Voice

Three short stories fresh from the oven! It was very embarrassing for me to reveal my biggest jealousy on so many levels (inside my head), but I’ve spilled the beans on digital paper here. This week’s edition also includes some reflections from books I’ve been reading, and a fun little metaphor for chronic illnesses. Happy reading! 🙂

11. Character Handicaps in the Biggest Game of All

"Every single person in the world has their own set of strengths and flaws. It’s about maximising our potential. That’s what strategy is about, and life is the biggest game of all. Some levels can get frustrating, but it can also be lots of fun, and advancing to the next stage is exhilarating." | A Chronic Voice | #100WritingDays
