Author Spotlight – the soul whispers blog

Today we are looking at https://thesoulwhispersblog.com A beautiful blog filled with poetry and self reflection. She says that “Blogging has provided me with a creative outlet and opportunity to connect with other indie authors. I love being a part of the indie writing community.”

When we asked what or who got you started? She responded “I started writing a blog 5 years ago with the hopes of feeling heard. I’m an introvert with a very busy mind. Writing is a creative expression of my inner reflections on experiences, emotional health and spiritual understanding.”

A Canadian blogger who enjoys nature, strong coffee and time with her pup (A Yorkie named Winston). She also loves traveling and experiencing the world through different culture, architecture, food and landscapes. Her creative husband has toured with multiple musicians.

She says of getting writer’s block : “Writer’s block is part of the process. When I experience writer’s block I give myself the time I need to ‘not write.’ At the same time, I also charge through the feelings of self-doubt and questioning by writing in my journal – knowing that I am free to write non-sense, make mistakes, and that a gem may appear in the mess.”
