Hi, I’m Rachy-Lou!

I’m a recently unemployed 30-something trying to make it as a writer.

I hate tea, can drink coffee and will bite the hand off anyone that offers me a coconut hot chocolate. I live on Quorn cocktail sausages and children’s books. I spend most of my days thinking about how cool it would be to have a pet dragon. I have just taken up jogging. I write because it makes me happy.

This site is my first foray into sharing the things that I write with anyone and an attempt to hone my writing and editing skills. I’ll post a bit of everything: some reviews, some creative writing (which will, mostly, be suitable for children!) and some general ramblings.

I’ll also be sharing my writing journey; the methods that do and don’t work for me, the exhilarating highs of getting a chapter/scene/sentence/word down on paper, the terrifying tantrums when the words or characters just don’t do what I want them to, and the aching pain and embarrassment that comes with not being JK Rowling/Philip Pullman/[insert any and all published children’s author name here].

If you like any of what you read, you can subscribe using the link to the right. I’m also on all the usual social sites – links just under the banner –Β and feel free to get in touch!
