Hi friends!

We are wrapping up week two of my month-long daily writing challenge. Posts from Day 4 through Day 13 are linked below. If you missed the first four posts, you can find them here in the previous email.

I feel like I'm really getting into the habit of writing daily and quickly. I'm also cognizant that the results are not as good as a post I might put a dozen hours into and perhaps not as worthy of the audience's time. I think there's a place for both types of writing though. I think of these as my daily thoughts - more of an online diary - as opposed to a researched and wordsmithed article.

If you'd like to follow the posts as the came out, you can subscribe to my RSS feed or follow me on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.

Until next time,
