Here's the thing about writing with a Wildly Authentic voice: There are often authentic pieces of ourselves that are easy to show in our writing and other pieces of ourselves that aren't so easy to show.
For example, I love writing from the depths of my being. I love sharing my heart and my emotions. I also enjoy teaching and inspiring you through the big realizations I have. This work feels serious and important to me.
However, in my personal life I also LOVE laughing and...
Hello my lovely, wonderful readers!
It has been such a pleasure writing daily emails to you. I started this practice on September 28, and I've LOVED it. Writing to you is the best part of my day.
I'm going on a break for the next week and a half. I'll be walking, watching movies, drinking tea, and reading book. This will be a delicious creative inhale.
I will be back with our daily emails on Tuesday December 8, the day after the Full Moon.
Hi, I'm Emma Veritas!
I'm a writer,...
Did you know I have a podcast?!
Every couple weeks my amazing friend, Caitlin Bosshart, and I publish an episode of Full Heart Free Voice Podcast, where we talk about our current book choice, Women Who Run With the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, dive deep into the challenges of being wildly authentic, and talk about how to live a multi-passionate creative life.
This week we published an episode I think you'll enjoy!
This episode focuses on the initiatory process of...
One of the reasons I am so passionate about helping you become a woman who writes is that I wholeheartedly believe the world will be better when your voice is in it.
I don't know about you, but when I was growing up I was taught my voice was a nuisance.
I heard a lot about how I talked too much, laughed too loud, asked too many questions, needed too much help, cried too much....and on and on and on.
The basic message was - "Hey you, your voice is a big annoyance."
As part of my...
Blogging is my favorite kind of writing craft. I love writing short pieces, publishing them online, and connecting with you. Besides being fun to do, there are so many benefits to blogging, especially when you want to write authentically and inspire others.
#1 Self-Discovery: Writing your blog can help you discover who you are, what you think, and how you feel. As you write, you'll have a million aha moments where you'll say, "Ooohhh,...
When I completed Martha Beck’s Life Coach Training, the first thing I needed to do was start my business.
I was excited, but I was also TERRIFIED. I didn’t know how to start a business. I wasn’t sure who I wanted to work with or what I really wanted to do. I was scared of putting myself out there, and I didn't know how to do it. I was also ashamed about not knowing what to do.
Instead of getting started, I sat on the couch for 4 months, wallowing in self-pity,...
Today is the waxing quarter moon, and that means it's time to feel into the energy of our creative cycles.
This is the time when the moon is growing in the sky. The moon's light is increasing, and we get to see more and more of the beautiful orb each night.
We are now in between the new and full moons. This is a great time to focus your energy on a project you are motivated to complete, as we move towards the time of fullness.
Here are today's waxing moon...
Today is the day before the Waxing Quarter Moon. The Waxing Quarter Moon is when energy is building up to the Full Moon. It is a time to ask what you want to focus on. What wants to be completed? This is a great time to pick a project and give it your time and attention. To help with this, I have a book recommendation for you!
The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin was a game changing book for me. This book outlines four different personality profiles based on how people...
Writing my first blog post was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life.
Up until that point, writing had always been on the periphery for me.
Yes, I loved literature and was a devoted English major.
Sure, now and again a story would fly through me, get recorded on a Word Doc, and end up lost somewhere on my computer.
And, yeah, my boss always complimented me on my ability to write a clear and concise email.
But writing, like the kind of writing I dreamed of doing,...
