  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

      Hey ya

      Thanks for making contact

      My advice is to get started and a free platform is a good place… get into the habit and figure out your voice, reach and so on, then if you enjoy it get onto something that is more professional!

      Good luck with it!

      Cheers, james
