When you just don't give a fck! Some days be like that. Some days everything seems to be going wrong.

What keeps us from writing is, lo que diran!!! There is something that happens when we pay more attention to the outer/inner critic. Who are we bringing into our writing space before we even begin? What was that moment you first picked up the pen? What brought you to the page? Who do you write… Continue reading Day 14 ~ Writing for the Audience of ONE
When will we get out of our own way? How can we be more intentional about creating the time and space to do more of what we love? How will you prepare for the week?
