I'm guessing you're interested in reading. Or writing. Or both!

Well, I'm proof that if your purpose in life is to write, you can do it and get paid for it if you want to.

You see, I haven't always been a writer. I graduated from business and IT degrees and landed in a global accounting firm... which didn't sit well with me at all. What has felt right is writing. And in the past 1.5 decades, I've been paid to write professionally and personally. Without any formal writing degree. I work a writing job and run a writing business.

More than words

Writing isn't a job or career for me: it's a lifestyle. I LOVE connecting people - and connecting with people - through purposeful, personable, powerful content. That's why since 2017, I've shared my learnings on Medium in publications focused on marketing, business, writing, user experience, and self-growth.

Creativity breeds creativity. I adore writing haiku, a gorgeous type of Japanese poetry with only 5 lines.

I also draw my own pictures as it's unique, fun to do, and I love bringing a smile to people's faces with them.

You've got this my friend

Form your own path. Learn constantly. And keep writing.

If you're keen to take your writing to places you've never imagined, make now the right time.

You deserve it. You can make it happen.

And I'd love to help you... subscribe to keep updated with my latest posts on Medium.

Have a fab day :)

Cheers, Cynthia
