My first ebook will be about creating your first ebook

You heard right, the first ebook I will be creating will about how to write your first ebook. I've been thinking about how I would love to create an ebook, but I didn't know what to write about. Researching how to create an ebook leads to people explaining you should use Canva, Google Docs or something completely different, but they don't explain how or why.

The vegan challenge

For the past three weeks, I've been a vegan. It's something that brings in lots of new challenges, and the experience can be very gratifying and rewarding. There's a lot of foods out there which are obviously not suitable for vegans, such as; meat, eggs, dairy and even honey.

Like everyone else, we had to go on the waiting list and bid for flats/houses. We were expecting to find a place in between 1-2 years, but my mum thought it would take a lot longer.
