Reclaim Your Creativity
“You can, you should, and if you’re
brave enough to start, you will.”
― Stephen King, On Writing
Do you remember when writing used to be fun, thrilling, an escape from the humdrum into a world of sparkling possibility? But now there’s something holding you back: lack of confidence, uncertainty, endless procrastination, fear of failure … or just LIFE getting in the way. I totally get it, because I’ve been there too.
I’m a writer, coach and mentor, and I work with people who want to reclaim their delight in writing; to find their way back to a creative life.
Life is busy and it’s hard to prioritise writing when it might feel like a bit of an indulgence, some selfish ‘me time’. But the truth is, it’s not an indulgence – it’s the pulsing heartbeat that sustains us, the nourishment that gives us the wherewithal to achieve the more mundane chores, and it’s what makes our souls tingle with imagination and wonder. When we spend time writing, we come back fulfilled, refreshed and uplifted – so why do we shut that down? Through The Courage to Write course, a ten-day quickstart challenge and regular mentoring and writing exercises, I can help you to rediscover that magic and make writing a joyful habit.
The world of writing is a magical one – let’s open that door … click here to find out more about The Courage to Write Course.
With my practical, supportive and fear-busting tools, you’ll find everything you need to start writing happily and confidently again – whether your ‘thing’ is fiction, scriptwriting, blogging, or journalism, I’ll help you find your way back to the world of writing.
The Courage to Write and the Scriptwriting Course are supported by a wealth of resources to give you inspiration and ideas to work on – as well as ways to bust through your blocks and feel happy and confident about your writing. Join the Facebook group to be part of a community of writers and scriptwriters, all coming together to step into their writing dreams.

I often feel this - that the biggest obstacle, the highest hurdle to overcome, sitting bang in the middle of my path, is ME. My doubts and fears. My insecurity and dread of rejection. The busy life I've constructed for myself - the jobs I need to do to keep everything...read more
It’s back to school week here in the UK. The Great British Bake Off is back (although on the wrong channel, but let’s not go there), the air is getting chillier and you can feel the leaves preparing to fall. I’ve spent a fortune on new shoes for my kids’...read more
