With all things being equal, the adage is you should write everyday.

Is that always possible? No.

Yet, you should write everyday!

How?

Voice memos and the speech to text feature is going to be a big part of it!

If your can scroll for 15 minutes on your phone, you can jot an idea for 15 minutes.

Maximize your time! Future you will thank you.

October 2022: Skip To The Good Part

The first time I dyed my hair I smiled as I never have–mystified as to how gorgeous I looked as a red head! But it’s always the waiting for the change which is what gets on everyone’s nerves.

One of the elemental things in this life is change. Writing, I believe, powers the change imperceptible. It forces you to reckon internally–whether as writer or reader–with what the world has offered you, and how it has allowed you to bloom or shrink.

I believe in the exploration of yourself, bringing that boldness to the page, you allow the world to peek in your head. Examine your heart, agree with your motives and morals (or lack thereof!), hoping something shared reminds the reader of their own strength, power, and ability for better.

Writers are change agents–whether we want to admit it or not.

For the want of perfection, some writers will never begin.

One of the chief things you must remember is you don’t need the process to be perfect, you only need to begin.

With that in mind, remember that you can make a work perfect…after you being.

There are no shortcuts.

With Love & Ink,
