Hello and welcome. I’m Claire and I’m a writer – or at least I hope to be. I’ve managed half a novel, and am constantly scribbling and writing in my head so I thought I would carve out a tiny space on the internet to keep it all.
So who am I, and what do I write about? I’m a mum to two young children, a recovering people pleaser, a wife, I work full time, I am always trying to do all the things, then feeling terrible when I can’t. I have spells of anxiety and depression, and I care about things, deeply.
So read on for essays on motherhood, mental health, and relationships, with the occasional creative writing piece thrown in when I’m feeling particularly brave.
Lovely to have you here.
