Let me tell you about an organisation that will change your life, if you are an artist of any description. A big statement, I know but it is true, I know because I joined Wana in June 2012. It was one of the best decisions of my life and I have received so many rewards from doing so.
My story begins in May 2012 and my life at that time, was like this. Even though I was in a well-paid career, I was stressed to the hilt. I was unable to work and sinking deeper and deeper into a pit of despair. I was sleeping late going to bed in the early hours of the morning and staying in my pyjama’s all day. My body had had enough and my mind had shut down. I had to do something and fast.
So I started to write and write and write. I had always wanted to be a writer since I was a small girl but never quite got there. Life often gets in the way of our dreams.
I started to search the web and I read this blog
http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/ by a woman called Kristen Lamb.
Kristen is a bestselling author in her own right. You can find her books here.
I found Kristen, funny and I needed to laugh, big time. She was well informed and she had a dream; to build a social network site to rival Facebook for all us artists everywhere. She called her site Wana and started a revolution of artist love.
Kristen’s mantra is “Service First” and that is the essence of Wana, to help each other in any way we can. So how did Wana change my life for the better?
