Tik Tok Writer's Block

Do you ever wonder if perhaps some people’s “writer’s block” has less to do with drawing a blank than it does with the number of Twitter updates they send in a day? Here’s a little ditty by published author Jackson Pierce where she calls herself out for that very thing. Anyone else recognize a bit […]
