Thoughts on Writing

Welcome back to the work week, everyone. Here’s a brief post for the day, inspired by a long, rejuvenating weekend where I did only the things that nourish me, including writing.

Whether you write professionally, for personal enjoyment, or journal, Corrine Kenner points out that “any blank page can be intimidating.” In her book, Tarot for Writers, Corrine devotes an entire chapter to breaking writer’s block.
