That unadulterated kind of writing. I miss those days when all I care about is plain writing. Scribbles. Marginal notes. Journals. No SEO. No tags, meta tags, and title optimization. It’s free writing. I just finished all my digital marketing projects. It’s now 3:30 AM. So, I told myself. “Decide to write again.”
