My whole life I’ve sought comfort in various forms of my creativity, particularly in my writing. In 2016, a new friend saw in me potential as a writer that she took upon herself to foster by challenging me (with a fair bit of effort on her part) to do NaNoWriMo. It was through the months of preparation leading up to this experience that I discovered and developed new methods of organizing my ideas and plots, that I might not have otherwise ever accomplished. It was as a result of her belief in me, and in her pushing me to develop my skills and pursue them, that I was able to write my first two manuscripts, and plot several more books to the series I am currently working on.
A few years ago, two individuals I’d met through friends revealed to me that they had ideas for books they thought could be really great, but that they didn’t believe they could write themselves for various reasons. I saw this as my chance to do what my friend had once done for me. I soon learned that I had an aptitude for helping others stifle their self-doubt and organize their ideas, and it was one of those wonderful individuals that told me I should be pursuing it as a career.
Then, in 2020, just as the pandemic was hitting Canada, my health took a turn for the worse, and I discovered first hand how complex a mind can be and how it can work against our ability to focus and achieve our goals. I learned what it was like to have my body no longer cooperating with me, and I learned what it was like to battle an enemy that lived within my own skin, within my head.
With mysterious neurological issues that brought with them chronic headaches and migraines, I quickly learned how difficult it could be navigating a world that wasn’t designed for varying needs in mind.
Now, I want to help others discover the depths of the passions they don’t know how to explore, and to see how far they can take them, regardless of their divergences, or their physical or mental limitations.
While my business is beginning in a virtual capacity, my dream is to someday create a physical retreat for anyone who possesses within them a creative soul and a desire to explore it.
