What is your writing process?
I enjoy writing, but my passion is change. So in order to write something, I need to have a passion about what I am writing and why I am writing it. Love that Counts is my passion to see people enjoy healthier and happier relationships. I think life is hard enough without having extra drama deliberately created by the relationships one is in. So I believe relationship health and happiness go hand in hand.
