Welcome to “The Write Thing” and thank you for visiting.
This website started out as a blogging experiment I began in a bored moment, and quickly became a place I came to to waffle on about my life outside of running a business and practising law. All thoroughly boring to anyone else, I’m sure, but I enjoyed it all so much, and discovered the practice to be almost therapeutic and cathartic, and the next thing I knew I found myself writing other things: features at first (as in articles for magazines) then short fiction, children’s picture books, and then any other content required for clients’ publications (including digital).
What you will find if you land on this site is an amalgam of blog posts and examples of professional writing (although I do have to say that I’m notoriously bad at self-promotion so it may take me a while to illustrate the latter!) I hope the blogging bits and pieces are enough entertainment anyway! I certainly have fun doing those, and they remain a good escapism for me from my “day job”. That said, I have refined some of the content over the years and have made many posts “private”. This may have resulted in some links ending up nowhere for which I apologise in advance.
A bit about me: my name is Kate, and these days I call myself a lawyer and freelance writer, with my niche writing areas being: lifestyle (which includes topics such as gardening, craft and sustainable living), nature and Indigenous affairs. Frankly though, I pretty much love researching and writing about anything except maybe fashion which I find a real bore.
This site is a vehicle through which I aim to be more creative and to find my own voice. I want to push my creative thinking, conquer new horizons, and broaden my outlook and that of my readers too, maybe!
I’m a mum to three, and my “day job” is being a business owner and lawyer. I’m also ‘mum’ to a menagerie of domestic and farm animals. I live in an absolutely gorgeous part of regional Queensland in Australia.
Although this blog doesn’t take comments, I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org . I’m currently reconstructing a Facebook headquarters where connection can be made in the future. Lastly, the anecdotes related on this blog while true may feature people whose names have been changed to protect identities.
