Each person has a creative voice that can be expressed, if one just nurtures it and lets it grow 🙂 Exurb1a is a one of a kind example, one that I also highly recommend for his quirky way of storytelling (just like in this listicle of Youtube channels to follow).

Also, in the description of the video, you’ll find the list of resources below – didn’t know about the Bradbury one, can’t wait to read it!
