My Newsletter

Every month, you will get one to two newsletters chronicling my  journey as a writer and reflecting on gratitude. Gratitude is a massive part of my life. After overcoming a health crisis, I saw beauty everywhere I looked and positivity overflowed from every area of my life. It's important that we keep things in perspective and recognize the little things in life, and that is what my newsletter is all about. Life is hard but we don't have to make it harder.

Thanks for reading!


I'm always looking for feedback on my writing, since I am self-taught. Please feel free to email me with comments or feedback. Until I see the story from your eyes, I won't recognize the areas that are missing or could be better developed. I'd like to think that this writing journey is a collaboration between myself and my readers.  Without your feedback, I couldn't make my writing stronger.

Thanks for being a loyal reader,

E.D. "Edy" Hackett
