When did you realise you were a writer? This is a question many of us will ponder. What makes a writer? Am I a writer? The answer is simple, if you write then you are a writer.

How you save all your best ideas to produce content for months. With an increase in publishing this month my first concern was would I run out of ideas. I knew I had to get better at capturing idea’s as they come into my head. Throughout the day you can create many opportunities for post ideas.
