For Writers And Dreamers

For Writers And Dreamers

“Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life; they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again.” ~ Anne Lamott

Brenda Knowles invited me to participate in the “My Writing Process” blog tour. Brenda is the creator of Space2Live, a website about introversion, intimacy and relationships. She writes delicious things. See for yourself.

I write for a living, but I also write for a life. I write blog posts, website content, press releases, and ebooks. When nobody’s looking, I write poetry. You can find some of my micropoems on Twitter.

My Writing Manifesto

Write. Write to inspire. Write to connect. Write to tell secrets we all share.

Write in the morning and in the night. Write around the edges of the day, blurring the line between fiction and life.

Inhale beauty. Exhale words that leave a legacy. Take off your blinders and write with VISION.

Let your words be a sermon and an exorcism. Put some skin in. Smear your soul across the page. Give your heart away on 8”11 sheets.

Write words that tickle, embrace, and seduce. Words that transform. Words that matter. Write.

Current Project

“A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity.”
~ Franz Kafka

At the moment I’m preparing for my “Super Spring Writing Challenge”. I will be writing everyday in the month of May. Each week I will write one blog post for this website,five posts on my other website, Introvert Spring, and a newsletter (subscribe, darling).

I am also offering a 25% discount to all new copywriting clients for the entire month.

What sets my work apart?

Authenticity, of course. I always seek to tell the truth in my writing. I strive to write to the center of emotion whenever possible. Why? Because emotions awaken us to life. They allow us to connect to our true selves and others who are like us.

Why do I write what I do?

“We write to taste life twice.”
~Anais Nin

Effective writing is a mirror. My ultimate goal is for readers to see themselves reflected in my words.

As a copywriter, I write clear, concise and compelling content that engages my client’s audience. As a blogger, I write to create connections. Writing about introversion, authenticity and intimacy allows me to explore topics that resonate deeply with others and myself.

How does my writing process work?

“I must write it all out at any cost. Writing is thinking. It is more than living, for it is being conscious of living.” ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh

My writing is a mosaic of life experiences threaded together by reflection and insight. If you’re wondering why I write with such a bold voice, there are two reasons:

1. Even though I’m quiet and calm in ‘real life’, I’m a passionate idealist with a loud soul voice.

2. Nobody likes a wishy washy writer who tries to please everyone. Strong voices get heard on the Internet. Period.

I used to be able to dream my way right out of life michaela chung

If you can dream then you can write. Or paint. Or dance. Or make the world more beautiful simply by being in it. Writing is the vehicle. Beauty, emotion and the soul voice are the drivers.

Writing is the best gift I can give to the world: a quiet offering that expands the soul.
