So, you want to be a writer?
The good news: anyone can write! The bad news: many people are pretty bad at it. But don't panic!
All a writer needs are two things: a good story to tell, and the ability to do so. I'm not a good writer myself, but I hope these posts can help you to become a better writer than I am. Which should be easy 😅 You'll still be suffering though because writing (well) takes a lot of hard work.
A fair word of warning first. Some of my posts might be brutally honest or not entirely politically correct, and of course I have my own preferences and tastes. Or I could be outright wrong 😏.
I. Before you start
Just to make sure you're sure...
