#WriteWithMe: Musing About A Prompt

Spent my #WriteWithMe journey writing time on a prompt that took an unexpected turn this morning. Sometimes the prompts hit deep, other times they dont, and then there are days when I go “oh this is a simple prompt” and as I am writing it turns into this… “F*ck, that sense of “unworthy” runs so g-d damn deep. I am […]

#WriteWithMe Reflection: Week 5
