Beings that I have no inspiration for my own writing topics at the moment, I feel like doing one of these will help spark that desire to start writing again (after all, that’s what this blog is for, right?)
I probably won't end up doing these every single day, especially with finals coming up next week. But I'm definitely going to try and do them during my winter break before my big move to Florida :)
