At the beginning of the September, I had the crazy idea of doing a 30 day writing challenge on my Instagram with audio journals. For a very long time I’ve wanted to be consistent with my writing. I tend to be that person that only writes when they are inspired so it makes me so happy that I stayed with it for 30 days and managed to write 6,000 words!

Now I’m not even sure if there is a coherent story in what I’ve written but that’s not what matters. Alhamdulilah I’m just really grateful I stayed with it and I’ve taken away many lessons from it.
You can watch the introduction and the rest of the videos on my IGTV here.
I haven’t had time to edit the story properly but I wanted to share an extract I briefly edited today so I could hit my third goal of feeling confident in sharing my writing.
I hope you enjoy it, click on the pages to keep reading.
