To my returning readers, you may have noticed that I’ve changed my blog theme and logo to green. I feel like that signifies a new era for my blog, with less stiff writing and more personality in my posts lmao. I’ll also be engaging and posting more on my Twitter and LinkedIn, which is something I’m looking forward to!

Love these quotes! I think I need to keep reminding myself that it’s so important to just get the writing done for the first draft first and focus on pretty words and prose when editing 🙂
