My first writing round-up! Writing round-ups are life, guys. I love writers who share other people’s work, articles and blog posts.
Every month, I’ll curate a writing round-up of my favorite articles that I think are:
- Different – and by different, I mean stepping away from how-tos and advice-oriented, and more inspirational.
Let’s get started!

I LOVE writers who are honest. And what’s more honest than a writer saying, ‘I can’t write what you want me to write.’ Being an author means being true to who you are. Not every reader will love your work. In fact, many will disagree. But when you are down to earth in your words, you get readers that connect with you – and not on a superficial level. The article gave me the confidence to talk about what’s in my heart while also having a thick skin.
Tone plays a big role in emails. Sometimes, people misinterpret your words in an email. So here’s an article on how to write emails concisely, efficiently – and one of the MOST important things I was taught when writing emails – how to write subject lines. I’ll add articles, like these, to my writing round-ups.
How do we write conversationally? Well, this lady has a nifty trick for you! When you write emails, whether it’s an email campaign, a sales email, or to your employee, pretend you are writing to that ONE person. I totally agree with this tip! Instead of writing an email to your massive audience, pretend you are writing to someone like your bestie. Another tip – which I find HILARIOUS – is changing your environment. I cannot believe how right this woman is – I tend to write more seriously at my desk. But when I lay down on my couch or bed like I’m doing right now – I tend to write conversationally.
On Real Life
Writing about mental health is legit BRAVE. People who talk candidly about their struggles get a hundred kudos from me. What I like about this article and the reason why I’m sharing it with you is because it encourages writers to write from the heart. Mental health is stigmatized so to read about an author revealing herself in such a deep and vulnerable way, is eye-opening. Talking about mental health, especially for people who are introverts, is insanely courageous. Kudos to the author – you rock!
