Why I Write

There’s a little blog post baton being passed around at the moment, and I’ve been tagged by the delightful Kylie Pappalardo from Navigate Create. This girl is amazing! She’s doing her PHD in copyright law and also manages to give tonnes of free, valuable info about copyright on her blog.


You know, it’s funny. Even though I journal every morning; even though when I was a kid I thought about being an author when I grew up; and even though I’ve blogged nearly every week for the last 2.5 years; I never considered myself a writer.

So when Kylie asked me to participate, that’s the first thing I thought. “I’m not a writer”

But I’m writing this, so I guess I am one, huh?

So here we go. Dive in with me?

1. What am I working on?

So. Many. Things.

Lots of secret squirrels, but the one thing I can tell you about  is…. *drumroll*


Remember my Radical Renegade a while back - Naomi Goodlet? Well, we’ve teamed up to create a 21 day e-course so you can break bad habits, reach your goals, and rise above challenges like a blissed out rock star.

There’s STACKS of content including new, exclusive meditones tracks! Wooo!

We’ll get you feeling Invincible in no time. You can learn more here.

2. How does my writing differ from others in its genres?

I’m hilarious.

Self loathing and body hate are pretty heavy subjects. And whilst I think these topics need to be soaked in love, I also think bringing humour to the situation helps to dull some of their power over us.

3. Why do I write?

There are 3 very distinct reasons why I write.


My head is ready to explode on a regular basis. So many ideas, thoughts, flashes of insight, rabbit holes of regret, fond memories etc etc etc.

When I write, I manage to get the tornados of thoughts out of my head and onto the page.

It helps. so. much.

Creative Expression

Music is my main form of language, but words also dance. I love reading, I love poetry, I love well formed lyrics. So I try to bring some of that creative expression into my writing too.


The biggest reason I write - especially for The Attitude Revolution - is you. Seriously. I love connecting with my comrades. Knowing that we’re all on this journey together brings light to my life. No exaggeration. This blog doesn’t just give me a way to serve you guys, it serves me too. Couldn’t love you all more! *sniff*

4. How does my writing process work?

Get it down. On the page or on the screen. Write write write. Edit edit edit. Find the gold. Highlight. Rinse and repeat.


And now the “tag, you’re it”. I’ve nominated two lovely ladies!

Dani Pepper - Forever Glow

Mah girl Dani is the toxic free beauty queen! If you want glowing skin, glowing health and a helping hand through the maze of “good for you” beauty products - Dani is your girl. She’s super smart, super nice and super informative.



Naomi Goodlet -

Mindfulness Crusader, Anxiety Hacker, Spiritual Rebel. Naomi is one kick ass wellness chicka. I’ve loved working with her on Invincible and I can’t wait for y’all to benefit from her wisdom in this course. Look out!
