Many things can and will kill your motivation. Not just in writing, but throughout life in general. And when that happens, you might stop doing Your Thing, which leads to guilt which leads to Darkness Brain and less motivation and the vicious cycle is in full swing.

Jess talks about the persistence of famous names in the industry, Tracey talks about giving yourself grace and time, and Anne finds a reason to talk about BTS again (as well as other things). At the end, the group has an important announcement.
