When I started Writing Forward seven years ago, I had no idea what to expect. As a writer and internet junkie, a blog seemed like a smart way to pursue two of my greatest passions. I had no idea where the journey would take me.

Although at times the journey has been frustrating and exhausting, it has also been enlightening and invigorating.
