Fairfax & Favor The Burnham Tan Boots
Anyone else ridiculously excited to lounge around over the Christmas holidays and do absolutely nothing?  Although, when I say nothing, I mean no working from morning-to-night or knackering ourselves at the gym.  I'm not talking about the creative things that bring stars to our eyes and joy to our hearts.  That sounded cheesier than I'd intended, but bear with me.  This year has forced us into the realm of free time, whether we liked it or not.  During this time, I discovered a couple of pursuits that truly brought a smile to my face - one of them being writing a book.  Now, I've done this before.  I have a couple of completed (admittedly, not great) books stashed in envelopes underneath my bed.  But this time has been different, it is being written from a calmer and less rushed place.  It's something I intend to continue writing, even through the holidays... no, especially through the holidays.  With this happy little project in mind, I thought I'd pose a question to you all.  Have you ever considered writing a book?

Understand me when I say that I know it's not a quick and easy task, but that's the beauty of it!  You don't have to shoot for perfection, or a bestseller - in fact, you're under no obligation to ever show the world your words.

It's your project, entirely your own.  In a world where collaboration is key, this project is entirely your own.  From beginning to end, it's your baby.

Everyone has a different interpretation of mindfulness, however I truly consider writing a book to be a form of this.  Your mind has no choice but to follows where you lead.  Should you wish, it can serve as a form of beautiful escapism.

You could argue I already lead quite a creative life; seeing my schedule involve copywriting by day and creating digital content by night with acting classes slotted in between.  However, I've still been in need of something where no other opinions enter the mix than my own.  Writing a book can be a blissful creative outlet to allow you to consider, write and express whatever comes to mind - without judgement.
