Generally speaking, I don’t like to share what I’m working on because it messes up my mojo when I do. I end up not finishing whatever I said that I would do because I’ve already told you about it so what’s the point in seeing it through now?

Every time I’ve sat down to do some journalling over the last two weeks, my plans for the summer have been top of mind.
