Good good links #108

Weekend, you’re too short! I could do with another day of sleeping in, just rolling with the flow and neglecting my to-do list for a little while. But alas, the show must go on and the daily grind will have us back soon already. Not before making the most of today – whatever that means for you – and trying to live in the moment.

On another note I was overwhelmed by the feedback I got on my last post. How are the posts I spend the least time stressing over drafting actually those that you enjoy most?? I guess I need to go with my guts  and let my thoughts flow more often rather than letting my overthinking brain get in between. Easier said than done …

Enough of me for now, though, as there was a plethora of amazing posts by many other great writers out there once again. I’m especially curious how you like the posts from the first category so let me know if you get/got a chance to read them.

Happy Sunday!

      We’re both hoping then and so far it seems like all was not lost. I might be naive but I believe that as long as we stay passionate about writing and it’s visible in our posts we’ll have people reading.
