I’m in the midst of a 30-Day Challenge to develop a lifelong daily writing habit. Today is Day 13, and I’m having major writer’s block. I told Pierre and he remarked that there’s plenty of content I could derive from my full day. Nothing in particular inspired me to write – but as a whole, my day kinda rocked.
