What inspires you to write?
What inspires me to write are all my experiences in life. We as individuals need inspiration in life. All my experiences will help many to see the light. We are all capable of making mistakes. The point is, to learn from your mistakes, and use your mistakes to help other to not commit them. Life is a learning process. We learn through our observations, pain, suffering, relationships, and so on. It’s about sharing that knowledge, and leaving a blue print, where many can read it and learn from it. Writing heals my soul.
