My writing process is pretty straightforward. Basically, I write my heart. But I try to package it in a way that adds something to your life. It goes a little something like this:
On Friday mornings (Swagger Friday!), I wake up at 5:00, trudge downstairs, fire up the Nespresso machine and hit my Mac (pictured above).

After writing the post, I make it into the email you guys get every Friday. It usually takes about 2 - 3 hours per post to get it all done.
