About

Welcome - I'm Rosie.

If you're a writer looking to uncover purpose and seek more joy in your creative process, you’re in the right place.

I believe that:

  • Creative expression can be truly life enriching - bringing more calm, confidence and fulfilment into our day-to-day.

  • We are all kinder, happier humans when we connect with the things that nurture our souls.

  • Joy and empowerment go hand in hand with creativity, and most of the time we don't need to make things so difficult for ourselves.


My Story

I’m a designer/maker turned writer and mentor, with a passion for teaching a creative process with more clarity, simplicity and freedom.

Professional daydreamer just about sums up my day-to-day, I take ideas and make them into all sorts of useful things - from blog posts, newsletters and instagram posts, to practical ebooks and downloads. 

I also write contemporary fantasy fiction for young adults and I’m currently seeking representation for my manuscripts.


i have always been an artist

When I left university, Architecture degree in hand but no desire to be an architect, I started my own business selling handmade products online.

I taught myself new crafts like machine embroidery and screen printing, and developed my skills in photography, branding and writing online copy. I sold at craft markets and through the online marketplaces of Etsy, Not On The High Street and Folksy, as well as running a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Discovering a love of writing came as a surprise, though maybe it shouldn't have. I started after reading a chance blog post about NaNoWriMo, not realising that I'd been making up stories in my head for years anyway.

I’VE NOW FINISHED FOUR NOVELS.

An obsessive reader since forever, stories of all kinds have always been so important to me, and there's nothing better than the feeling of shaping a whole world with the power of words. It truly feels like a kind of magic. 

After writing as a side project for a few years, I’m now seeking representation for my fiction and working on getting published. Chasing big, scary dreams is never easy, but that doesn’t mean it should be hard, either.

I’ve developed some tips and tricks in navigating the creative process along the way, and I’d love to share those with you, too. 

IN THROWING MYSELF WHOLEHEARTEDLY INTO LIVING THIS CREATIVE, FULFILLING LIFE, I HOPE YOU’LL BE ENCOURAGED TO DIVE INTO, KEEP SHOWING UP FOR AND LET SHINE THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOUR CREATIVE SOUL SING. 


My principles for creative living

Simplifying life and minimising decision fatigue in order to channel our energy into our creativity.

Training ourselves to find focus, grow skill, and build resilience in the face of obstacles that would throw us off course.

Taking care of our internal wellbeing to nourish a creative output that flows with ease.

Finding joy in the little, sustainable moments of making invites a lifestyle where we can really enjoy the creative process along the way.

Giving our work purpose and a clarity of voice that defends against self doubt. Practising reflection and flexible goal setting to help us stay on course.

 

you can grow a lifestyle that supports your beautiful creativity, nurtures your soul and positively impacts the world around you
