It’s a new year, and a great time to reflect on ourselves – our goals, thoughts, ambitions, etc. This week our writing theme is centered around Mindfulness. Being mindful and living with intention can help us learn to make informed decisions about our lives, as well as help us become more calm, relaxed, and grounded people. Along the way, we’ll learn about some other writers and their creative processes. Today's featured book is Obviously, Stories from My Timeline by Akilah Hughes.
