Finding inspiration in words - why I write.

Shoot what it feels like

Musings on my learning, successes and failures after doing the annual "Flash of Red February" challenge.

A 2018 feature series

This year, I want to be more focused on writing up my journey. Its a journey I've been on since 2014 and one I want to document in a more structured way. I am hoping to share my monthly themes along with my learning, successes and failures as I go along. A feature with 12 chapters.
