Writing for a number of online publications, one in particular that scores pieces based on hearts, shares, and comments, I’d noticed that my articles on gratitude, self-development and life in general didn’t rate that high.

Writing is my passion and has been since I was a child. My mother still has some of the ridiculously imaginative, and silly, letters I’d crafted long ago – along with poems, essays and my first published pieces.
