Life, it’s feeling so life-y this year, isn’t it?
Surreal and strange with fleeting threads of the finest gold that weaves through the thick foggy air to show us there’s some hope and laughs and good stuff still beaming down on us.
And there is.
2020 – a helluva ride. I keep looking in the mirror to make sure I’m still me; on the outside I’ve got the same face and features, but on the inside everything has changed. Weirdly, I love reinvention. I’m a bit of a change addict; when life gets boring and samey, then doing something totally different always seems a good idea. Jumping in to new things and feeling like a beginner is, hands down, the best medicine I know.
If you’re new here, thanks for stopping by. I’m in the process of reinventing my own purpose and life and it feels good. More space, more writing, more being myself, more genuinely helping the people I can do my best work with. Less social media (time suck!), less consuming short-form content that puts me in a void. More movies, books, good telly. More conversations about how we feel. Yes please.
As i work on creating more (currently working on a story set in Manchester in the 90s) and mentoring amazing people to start their own reinvention, no matter how radical or subtle that is. I hope you’ll join me. Ruth x

We’ve just had a dip in the Med. I couldn’t be happier because the temperature is sunny and around 23 degrees, […]
Because you write, or create, for a living then I’m pretty sure you’re a heart-wide-open kind of person. We choose this path, don’t we, because something inside tells us we have to share our truth and speak our voice in some way? It’s words that unify us, whether we’re copywriters, published authors, unpublished authors, communications […]
This week has felt fucking long and rough at times but I’m feeling strangely excited by the new lockdown; a tonic to my chronically overwhelmed and over-wired ADHD brain. Like you I’m sure, I’m wildly oscillating between heart-pumping gratitude and severe anxiety; the kind where my world is about to start falling apart and my […]
