April 12, 2012

I don’t care if you’re a journalist, an author, a poet, a blogger, or simply a wannabe (don’t worry, we all start as wannabes), you should write every single day. Every single day. In fact, writing every day is so important that I’d go so far as to say every one should write every day, […]
