Top 3 things about writing

  • Emotionally satisfying to tell stories
  • Love of world building
  • Exploring characters in my head

Write your stories


  • The craft
  • Learning from others


  • Your own story
  • Your own experience
  • Can’t please all the readers, but shouldn’t want to
  • Those who don’t like your stories aren’t your people – not a good match, no harm no fault


  • Write all of them
  • Don’t play it safe, there is no exactly write


Don’t beat yourself up

Don’t operate out of fear

Don’t scrunch yourself up – expand with joy, creativity and power

In other words, screw the rules.

I make arty mixed-media things, & write fantastical things (with kissing), & do musical & dancing things, & play gaming things, & do weightlifting things, & organise fabulous event things. But mostly I wrangle cats. Renaissance woman.
