Every time I stop writing and get back to it, I make a promise that I’m going to keep up with it. And here we are, a solid two months since my last published piece. So this year, I won’t make promises. I will just do my best and create a plan (and stick with… Continue reading Brain Spiral: What’s Your Motivation?
