Happy Sunday to 3,421 motivated writers 👋🏼
How’s everyone doing? I’ll keep it short up top today. I’ve had a lot of ‘life’ stuff going on right now. It’s been a busy (and stressful!) couple of weeks. I'll share more on this in the next couple months.
But I still try to get these opps out to you. Pulling this research together every Sunday morning is my ‘me time’.
So from me to you, enjoy 😊

1️⃣ Resource of the week
This is a goldmine. (Except, unlike gold, this beauty is completely free)
Pitching can be the worst. You want it to be relevant and personable, but you don’t want to spent a whole hours over a couple sentences… just to hear crickets back (guilty).
What’s that saying?
“Good artists copy, great artists steal” - Steve Jobs
“Lesser artists borrow, great artists steal” - Pablo Picasso
“Immature poets imitate, mature poets steal” - TS Elliot
… damn these guys just kept straight up stealing each others quotes lol
Get stealing! Check it out
