How do you still write when life is a little too much in the way?
It's just a letter, 'cause maybe you need a little more love than a savvy, talky, DIY, everything's good blog post. 'Cause yeah, we've all been that writer, one who's got so much life rolling around there's no room for anything else. #writingtips

Creativity isn't always there to save us in a tough spot. She's this wild, elusive creature, and you can never count on her. You can read all you want about how to find her, but is there really a way to capture her? Can you still write without Creativity?

You know those times when you were expecting company and things just didn't seem enough? Your house wasn't enough, your food wasn't enough, your plates weren't enough, YOU weren't enough? Yeah, and how can you EVER be enough? Maybe it's just the sharing of what you have that makes the darkest nights light and the chilliest soul warm.
