“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau
Thank you for being curious enough to stop by and check out my page! My name is Nicole, and I am currently an unpublished writer with a goal to be published. I graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with my Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing and English, and I am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success.
I do have one non-fiction article published called, “Victoria, B.C. Raw Sewage Dumping Concerns” that I wrote for the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, a Non-Profit Organization that focuses on supporting Empowerment for Animal rights, and Global/Disaster relief. While it’s not an article that reflects my creative side, I wrote it because ISF is an organization that I support immensely.
I have written several short stories, and I am slowly but surely working on a dark, contemporary novel; which is currently untitled.
It’s easier for me to write about the things that I do understand, but I really enjoy writing about the things that I don’t.
I enjoy challenging my characters, exposing honest and tough emotions, women my age can relate to. I also enjoy exploring romantic elements in my writing, but I am inspired by the deeper and darker parts of life.
In my personal life, I am a happy, adventurous, 34 year young woman, and I never want to miss an opportunity to give my readers those lip-biting butterflies of hope towards creating a life that makes their soul happy even through the ups and downs in life. If I could bottle up perfect days in a jar and give it away, I’d fill them with motivation, fulfillment and gratitude and make sure it was wrapped with a sparkling bow and completed with a hug.
I am an introvert at heart, so I’m perfectly content with a wild Friday night in reading a good book or creating masterful art in my Adult coloring books while watching movies, but I am also a sucker for new experiences that enhance this beautiful life that God has given me. That is the dream of it all.
What can you expect from me and this blog?
This is a safe AND positive place. I do aspire to be a published author and while I am working on that, I just want to share my process – the struggles and triumphs, my love for words (writing and reading them), and most importantly connecting with you in an honest way. Life can be a crazy but amazing ride. We are in this together.
I hope you stay a while!
