It’s okay to be more conversational in your writing -- in fact, I encourage it. ✏️ 𝗪𝐑𝐈𝐓𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐒𝐓𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐌-𝐎𝐅 𝐂𝐎𝐍𝐒𝐂𝐈𝐎𝐔𝐒𝐍𝐄𝐒𝐒// When a good idea comes to mind, and all you want to do is write.

But they always choose the reading hut with their library books. If holding a book the “wrong” way can completely change how much kids love reading, hold it wrong.
