Welcome to WriteNOW Cards!
Writing is hard. Beating yourself up about writing being hard, and ignoring your work as a result, is easy. I have never liked this dynamic.
Writing is also enjoyable, good for the mind, and a whole lot of fun. This is what I want to remember and focus on, even when writing feels hard.
This is why I created WriteNOW Cards. These affirmation cards are designed to help writers focus on all the many positives of writing, and to believe in themselves and their writing so they can enjoy their practise more and more every day.

A Short History of WriteNOW Cards
I first had the idea to create affirmation cards for writers back in the summer of 2016.
Inspired primarily by yesmum cards, which I began using after becoming a mother in 2015 and subsequently experienced post-natal depression and anxiety, I knew that there was a real need for writers to practise affirmation in order to counteract the many "obstacles" that can slow a writer down, or stop him/her writing completely. This is not to mention the many, many people who never start writing because they feel they can't or shouldn't.
In September 2016 I began brainstorming what I wanted my cards to look like and after countless edits, changes and decisions, I'm very proud of the final product, which launched in August 2017. The colours have been chosen to suit the affirmations on the cards and "the rainbow" the cards create is cheery and positive. I hope you love these cards as much as I do, and use them every day, just like I do.
This soft launch is a way of seeing if the cards do what I intend them to, which is to help keep writers focused, motivated and feeling good as they write. Should demand for the cards be enough, I will be adding more collections to WriteNOW Cards (like for editing or for poets) and as always, feedback and any comments are gratefully received - email@example.com. I always love connecting with other writers!
