Hey Reader, for most people, this is a normal week. For me, it's nerve-wracking for two reasons: ☝️ Taylor Swift is releasing a new album on Friday. ✌️ I'm hosting my biggest-ever LIVE Masterclass on Thursday with more than 1,500 writers who have already signed up! I'd love to pretend I care a lot more about the Masterclass than about Taylor Swift's music, but I'm a horrible liar, so let's say that I'm VERY excited about both. 😅 Seriously: I only host this Masterclass once per year, and it's...
