Our first kit ever might always be my favourite - being an occasional Tall Ship sailor, and it being the beginning of a great adventure. Link at the end of article to all of our Writerly Kit Reveals!
A ship at sea can face raging winds and wild seas, or endless days of no wind, drifting nowhere. The ship’s survival depends on being seaworthy – no rotting wood hiding away in dingy corners, sails regularly surveyed and stitched, resources for repairs kept in good shape, and a sailor’s sharp eye on her unique nuances as she confidently, bravely, and joyously explores the endless possibilities of the mysterious ocean.
As a writer, you are both the ship and the crew. There’s no straight track from point A to B, nor would you wish there to be. Your unique way of thinking is what calls you to writing, and you love that there are endless ways to explore your stories and your life. It’s a bit crazy, though, how much can get in the way: advice from those considered experts, advice from family or friends, fear of being ‘not good enough,’ Netflix, and the list goes on and on. In this Writerly Kit, I am delighted to share creative tools and resources for you to discover YOUR best way of getting to your writing more often.
