Welcome to the July Newsletter of Inkslinger Magazine where I put together a compilation of all the pieces I’ve written in the month in one place so you can pick and choose what you might be interested in reading (or find things you might have missed!).

This month, I’ve written 42 pieces — most of which have been from a new series I started up called ‘What If’. I also wrote a few random question pieces and a challenge piece along with my latest non-fiction (that isn’t a ‘what if’) about AI writing software where I do an experiment trying it out. I’ve also written two inspirational/motivational/pick-me-up pieces, two book reviews of psychic medium Tyler Henry’s two great books, and four pieces of poetry (because I post one piece every Friday).

So without further ado, here’s all the stuff I’ve written in the month of July. Let me know what you think! Are you enjoying my ‘what if’ series? I’m really enjoying answering the thought-provoking questions from my Scenario Cards and sharing my answers with you (read my ‘New ‘What If’ series at the start below to find out what the series is all about) and I hope you are too! And I’d love to hear your answers to the ‘what if’ questions as well!
