Hi there, I'm Elin!
I'm a writer working on my first novel and writing about personal growth for creatives.
I live in Sweden with my fiancé Petrus and our two beloved cats Alice and Pysen. I'm happiest when I'm living slowly, with plenty of time to write, nature outside my door, a pot of green tea, a good book and a camera close at hand.
I believe that going after your creative goals are a much more pleasant experience when you are on your own side.
Holding yourself back is tiring. Believe me, I've tried. I became interested in personal growth as it relates to creativity after realizing my creative fears were holding me back from writing my first novel.
It happens so easily. Creative projects tend to surface many of our internal struggles, especially when they force us to challenge ourselves. Fear, self-doubt and perfectionism pop up to stand in the way, making us procrastinate, self-sabotage or stay small.
But if we are open to reflecting and learning more about ourselves, then working towards creative goals can help us grow both as creatives and as humans. We can make better, intentional choices. We can be kinder to ourselves.
We can listen to what we need and learn how we work best, so we can finally make progress toward those goals that mean so much to us.
