If you can look at your life from a philosophical perspective, you will see that you are growing, and your writing should reflect this new insight. <br>
In the first week of the month, it would benefit you to get inspiration from other writers. Listen to the opinions of others, and allow constructive criticism to help you perfect your work. After the 8th, it will be up to you to look within yourself for inspiration.
