Writing is like watching a story come alive, from the mind, transferred to the hands, until suddenly you see it from the perspective of the writer. - Mavis

Since I was a little girl, I would read books and wonder how the author could vividly capture a story. It fascinated me that one could write and the reader could imagine the story. I was amazed at how my mind could conjure images from the words before me in a book. I decided, I too wanted to be able to do that - write.



Mavis has been blogging since 2012, 8 years later she has gone through blogging for self, to blogging for the general public, to blogging for a magazine.  Blogging started as a hobby through which Mavis could explore her writing abilities and allow herself the space to grow as a writer. Today, Mavis' blog has become a source of inspiration for many, a place to laugh and a place to learn.
