Thursday Writing Tips: When the writing won’t come

There is just something about Thursday that feels good. For one thing, I am always busy at my job, which makes the time fly. Then of course, I meet with my mastermind group on Thursday evenings which always jazzes me in the writing department. I need jazzing too, let me tell you.
