The dream: a tattered notebook bursting with snippets of fairy poems and the first paragraphs of a bewitching short story… and enough inspiration to fill 5 more journals of retold wonder tales and new myths.
2021 reality: writer’s block, exhaustion, anxiety, and a blank page that you mostly want to rip into teeny, tiny pieces and/or set on fire and/or feed to a dragon.
We feel you. We see you. And we know, deep down, you still want – need – to get words on the page, to make something, to capture that creative spark and let it lead you under the hill, through the mists, and down the rabbit hole.
Words are spells. Writers are witches.
