Everyone Thinks They Can Write a Book

Deep inside I’m willing to bet that everyone feels they have a story to tell. It’s when they start judging that urge that they’ll second guess themselves and wonder who would ever read it. Or how it would ever get written with their other life commitments. Or who would buy it. Or this one: “Everything … Continue reading

I Love/Hate School Lunches
