Please wear your masks, respect social distancing, wash your hands, and stay safe.
July is winding down and we’re heading into the dog days of summer: August. We’ve already had more than our share of hot, humid days—fact, I’m not complaining—and I’m trying to make the most of each one. I hope you’ve been making meaningful progress in your creative projects.
It’s time to reward yourself with some informal writerly learnings 🙂
