In this space of allowing myself to “be,” I admitted my greatest love is writing. I had kept it secret and hidden from the world and myself for so long and when I did participate, I played it down and even insulted it. I was ashamed of what brought me the most joy in my life and it was exhausting.
So finally, I let go.
Today, I write every day, publicly and privately. I share my life on “The Happy Hotline,” my creative writing on “I’ll Write the Words if you Sing the Tune,” my passion for food on “Project Mac & Cheese” - which I am also turning into a recipe book and maybe even a food truck- life essays in a book titled, “What I know for Sure, For Now,” and last and certainly not least, a screenplay, “Promise you’ll Write,” based on those earlier years I mentioned at the start.
My name is Anna Saywell, I am successful, I am a writer.
