You've got a whole lot of creativity inside you, lots of beautiful, bright ideas, and even more big dreams and hopes for the future.
The problem is - you're just not making progress. You've got no time to work on those big creative writing dreams, and when you do - you're distracted, overwhelmed, uninspired. Anyway, what if you start and find out the idea's no good, that it's just another thing to give up on, or never finish?
Scariest of all, what if you're just not good enough?
I know what it's like to crave a deeper, more meaningful direction - a big writing project to pour all of that creative energy into. I also know how hard it can be to bring that project to life on your own, to commit the time, energy and emotional resilience to something that seems so huge and uncertain at the start.
You are absolutely good enough.
Your stories are more than worthy of your commitment and you are so brilliantly capable of telling them. What's more, of doing it in a way that brings more fulfilment, calm and joy into your day-to-day.
I can help you find the little seed inside of you, that heartfelt dream or closely held desire - the creative writing project that’s just aching to be brought to life.
Together, we can figure out how to nurture it, keep it growing steadily, and encourage it to bloom into the brilliant, beautiful thing you want.
here’s where i can help
I am passionate about seeking order out of chaos; I can help you to cut through your internal clutter and find that quiet, calm place inside of you where all of your deepest dreams live. Together, we can simplify, find clarity and work to organise all of those confusing thoughts and bright, busy ideas - getting to the heart of what you really want and the stories you want to tell.
With six years of experience writing fiction and ten in bringing creative projects to life, I can help you identify the things that are holding you back and work to tackle them as they pop up. I love to find practical methods to overcome creative blocks of all kinds - helping you to figure out tangible, real ways to keep showing up and making progress.
So often, the biggest thing holding us back is ourselves. Let's cut through the excuses and the distractions and get back to embracing a writing process that's joyful instead of punishing; flowing instead of stilted.
I help writers find purpose through their words, overcome the things holding them back, and make a meaningful impact on the world around them
is Mentoring For You?
You're a writer, aspiring writer, or author - or maybe you'd just really like to be.
Maybe you've been keeping all of those words a secret, and you want to start sharing your writing with the world.
Maybe you're tired of 'aspiring', and ready to call yourself a writer.
Maybe you want to write something big and beautiful and full of impact - to really commit to an ambitious writing project like a novel or book.
Whatever it is you're dreaming of - you're aching to grow a lifestyle of creative freedom, expression and purpose that can support you in striving towards that dream.
You can't commit to an idea for long enough to make real progress with it; you struggle to follow through with plans and goals for your writing dreams.
You feel selfish or irresponsible for longing to spend time on your creative writing projects. You're a dreamer at heart, but it feels silly to pour time, energy and money into something that might never happen.
You're afraid of failing - that maybe you'll never be as good as the other writers you aspire to; your under-confidence makes you hesitant to start or procrastinate finishing things.
You're self limiting or self sabotaging, perhaps you're stalling on that writing project because you secretly worry about it all working out; you're afraid of success.
You want to get past all of these things, get out of your own way, and take back control of your writing process in order to make real progress towards your dreams.
…Then having that support, structure and accountability from someone who's been there could help you get to where you need to be.
What do you get out of mentoring?
clarity, simplicity and direction
We start by diving deep into your ideas and big dreams, simplifying and sorting out the conflict, clutter and noise so that we can get to the heart of your hopes for the future. This is where we find that single little seed of a brilliant idea inside you, just waiting to be nurtured.
techniques, practical processes and tips for tackling the things that are holding you back
At each step of the way we'll look at your mindset and figure out a way to grow through the obstacles and blocks you find yourself facing - everything from giving yourself permission to create, learning to take up space and challenging self doubt.
intentional, tangible progress
We'll look at how to break a long term writing project into tasks that can be completed with consistent, gentle progress. We'll assess the way you plan, when your energy is most suited to creative working, and figure out how your big dream can start intentionally taking shape around and within your lifestyle.
I'll be there right alongside you as you start taking these steps towards your writing dreams. We'll start each call by catching up on your progress - tracking and celebrating the little successes and reflecting on ways to improve on the things that didn't go so well.
Following a creative passion should be joyful and empowering; I'm here to help you embrace the magic of the creative process and support you on those days when it feels less like magic and more like hard work.
The mentoring package includes:
8 x 40 minute calls (via Skype) - one every 2-3 weeks for the four months.
Full notes, insights and actions emailed after every call so that you feel clear, focused and prepared.
Email support and check ins/pep talks for the days when you need a little more encouragement or advice.
The digital resources you need to make that progress happen - whether it's journal prompts, progress trackers or planner templates.
1 x email check in with a follow up list of actions and insights to keep you on track, one month after finishing.
