On Writing Experiments and Birthdays

I’ve been writing. Honest. Actually, more than I have in quite some time. At the end of May, I felt myself fall into a funk that even writing couldn’t improve.

For unknown reasons, the idea of peer pressuring myself via social media floated across my conscious and I tried it out. Turns out, many of my friends think I’m a good enough writer to send me encouraging DMs and leave sweet comments on my posts, and I have redeveloped a love for the process of morning (and evening) pages.
