“If you wish to be a good writer then write as if nobody will ever read your stories”.

Stupidly I followed the advice that led me straight into a courtroom and cost me all my savings. You see, I am a writer who hoped to get my stories out into the world and receive recognition. Instead, I got a front-row seat in the witness box, where I had to defend my stories.

Last year I started writing online articles on various trending topics such as mental health. I did all that a writer is advised to do to reach reader engagement and generate the most income. To enhance revenue, I signed up for writing programs: I learnt, studied and researched the topics I chose to write about and to joined and engaged with online communities where these topics were discussed.

I went so far that I have even studied a course on Psychology to write more accurately about certain mental health conditions. I’ve done that for over a year, investing over $2,000 into my writing.

I never expected anything in return, I just did what I love the most — writing.
