Writers and creatives alike struggle with challenges and difficulties and whether they craft or life related.
We often don’t know how to strike up a work-life balance.
Our toolkits are sometimes lacking when it comes to birthing our creations.
We spend too long staring at a blank page.
I feel you.
My life has been a constant upheaval of moving states, finding new friends, finishing University degrees, grieving, coping and learning. Finding a balance that works for me has been a challenge, yet it is so necessary to function in life.
I always wanted a writing accountability partner, someone to challenge me and check in with my progress, someone to be my cheerleader and my taskmaster.
My experience has been that these people are hard to find and even though they start out with good intentions they often fall short. I had to learn how to hold myself accountable and how to cheer myself along despite my fears and doubts.
I created a practice that helps me achieve a healthy balance every day.
And I want to help you create that same healthy balance.
- A lack of inspiration
- Tired and drained
- Scared to start
- Creatively flowing with ease
- Switched on
- Ready to take on the world
- Less stressed

Writing is an important skill and I don’t like the idea of someone not having qualifications to back up their actual teaching, which is why I have and continue to broaden my education to better my skills. I currently hold:
- Bachelor of Arts from Flinders University (majored in Creative Writing + Women’s Studies)
- Bachelor of Writing and Publishing from Melbourne Polytechnic
- Master of Creative Writing, which I’m currently studying
Through these degrees I’ve studied the following:
- Editing – all layers
- Creative Writing – short stories, long prose
- Non-Fiction – essays, creative non-fiction, non-fiction
- Literature Theories
- Publishing – how to self pub + publishing basics
- Photoshop + InDesign Basics
I don’t claim to be perfect at everything that I’ve learned and use in my business if I’ve misspelled something or gotten something grammatically wrong, I’m accepting that. It happens and if you find it, shout it out to me, I love people picking up my mistakes, it helps me grow.
