It’s a 1:43 minute commitment. Find the time, and do it.

If you need to be sold on the exercise, read this:

Maria Popova’s/BrainPicking’s transcription of the “most shimmering parts” of the podcast…

Then, supplement with

Write Like a Motherfucker

…and quickly order your copy of Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Life and Love by Dear Sugar.
