“Every first draft is perfect because all the first draft has to do is exist. It's perfect in its existence. The only way it could be imperfect would be to NOT exist.”- Jane Smiley Folks, we quote this all the time because it's SO true. What do you think? 📖 #writingcommunity

Spent 20 minutes yesterday on my hands and knees shooting the breeze with a local cat in my garden. Just seen him again this morning and realised that the reason his collar is so bulky is because it contains a cat cam. I can never leave my house again.
