Last year, I connected with Leah Grey about writing a guest post for WriteLaughDream.com. Grey, the wife of a recovering addict, wrote an amazing post entitled “How Not to Give Up on Your Marriage.” Still, a post that is shared and read often to this day, Grey has a powerful message of healing, redemption, and family in regard to addiction and recovery. It’s her ministry and has undoubtedly impacted the lives of so many across the country.
In a Forbes article from 2013, it was estimated that somewhere between 600,000 to one million books are published each year. Each year.

Now with that out of the way, I want to get you to truly realize that building your concept is hella important.

Tyece Wilkins did just that with her award-winning blog, Twenties Unscripted.
