Welcome to August’s newsletter, friends!

This month, I wrote a lot — with my now not-so-new ‘What If…’ series continuing daily — which I hope to continue every day as I work my way through the Scenario cards.

The majority of articles I wrote were part of my ‘What If…’ series, with 32 entries. But I also wrote one piece of Fiction (the first in a while!) as part of a flash fiction writing challenge, 8 various non-fiction pieces (including 3 for my new publication Beautiful Choices) and 2 poems.

So if you think you might’ve missed some of my writings over the month, here they are in one handy-dandy easy to view list all in one place!

I hope you enjoy whatever you decide to choose to read of my writings and as always, I appreciate you all, my fellow readers! Thanks for reading and ’til next time, take care of yourselves! (Oh, and happy September!)
