Hello! I really struggled to encapsulate all of these gentle writing advice bits into the form of an essay. So, instead I’d like to present to you a numbered list of softly-delivered personal lessons I’ve learned thus far. Many of these lessons did not come easy; I’ve had my share of joys, but I’ve also made mistakes, too. The sad thing is, I found myself cutting several bits because I couldn’t stop writing them. Hah!
