Save to Drafts, Vol. 2
Beginning at the turn of the new year, we asked our readers to submit screen grabs of their drafts. Anything from grocery lists saved in their Notes app to tweets and texts they never sent were on the table. You did not disappoint.
Here, on an (at least) monthly basis, we share a handful of the drafts we’ve received. Our submissions, in the meantime, remain open. We hope this project may serve as a reminder for how chaotic our emotions often are, how mind-numbingly funny you might actually be, and, above all else: that you never, ever, ever have to post.
