There’s loads of books on writing. You can get a cheap one with good reviews but I recommend just start writing more. I’m a believer in growth from reps. Write every day. Hold yourself to it. Make up a day in the life by brand’s you like or by someone you passed on the street. And if you want to complement this new discipline with a book, great, though you’ll begin to find your voice on paper without it. Good luck.

Is it wrong to invert/flip faces in social media posts?

My coworker who schedules content on our social media page posted an inverted photo of our colleagues on Instagram. When I looked at the image I wondered if she might have done it for a reason but I couldn’t think of one.

I know people think they look weird when they see their faces inverted in photos. So, I’ve always been under the impression that it’s not a good idea to do so. Am I reading into this too much?

If you notice that your match on a dating app is using photos from say, as far back as 2015 (like if you were to browse their social media and see the date of the photo), but they still look the same, do you negatively judge? If so, why?

I keep feeling like I’m going to get “caught” for doing something I’m not totally sure is actually a faux pas since I look the same.
