Hi I'm Leonie, Collector of feathers, pebbles, words and adventures, with an overactive mind and a sunshine-filled heart.

This blog is all about: NATURE ~ RUNNING ~ ART ~ FOOD ~ LOVE ~ SELF-DISCOVERY

Big scary admission

“Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.” 
- William Faulkner

I'm writing a novel.

(Crap, I said it out loud.)

It's been welling inside for an awfully long time. I was writing little bits back in 2011 when I made the above page in my bucket list (more pics here).

Now I just have to finish it.

It's a loosely autobiographical tale touching on introversion, mental health, nature (lots of nature), spirituality, broken families, and the awkwardness of things left unsaid.

I'll be sharing snippets here every now and then once it's in a more readable format than pencil scribbles in 4 different notebooks.  :)

And you lovely soulful guys and girls - you are most definitely my people, the ones I'll be relying on to keep my feet on the ground and my head out of my own but. If it sucks, I want you to let me know! That's the only way I'll grow as a writer. And I'd love for you to share my blog with your like-minded friends. Challenge number one for me at the moment is building my audience; without you my story just echoes off the bare walls.

Also - maybe bloggers don't say this enough - thank you. Thank you for giving me permission to talk, to write, to learn more about myself through writing to you.

Much love and light
