    I really like this. I’ve been wanting to post more often, but whenever I open up a draft I get writer’s block. Might just have to steal this. Shhh, don’t tell anyone. :)

      Don’t worry, I stole it too ;-) And I totally get what you’re saying, sometimes despite our best efforts, there are just no words pouring out into that empty draft.
