Every writer is on a journey. Whether you’re published or unpublished, your writing matters. I am a mentor, a writer, an author, and a copy-editor who specialises in critiquing fiction. I found my niche by expressing myself in different art forms over the past decade. Once upon a time, I told stories on the stage. Dancing, singing and acting was my forte. Then, in my early twenties, I was diagnosed with a chronic pain disease. Unable to continue as before, I had to adapt.
Though this was all insightful and character building, my favourite pastime was my most private, my love of freewriting. The practice of writing without rhetorical concerns and conventions is the ultimate form of expression for me. It allows me to pour my mind onto a blank page without my technical editor brain, halting the free flow of creation.
The last decade has shown me that I can express my creativity through many mediums and that my disability cannot hold me back from doing so. My passion is within the limitless bounds of writing. I am first and foremost a writer, informing my work with life experiences, reading and imagination.
I enjoy writing feminist literature under the guise of gothic themes, psychological thrillers and occult fiction. You can find out more about my writing style on my blog: daniellamaylittle.com
I believe that every writer is on a journey. Whether they're published or unpublished, their writing matters. I created The Writer's Journey to empower writers, build their confidence and aid them in getting their voices heard. Over the last decade, I have been honing the art of storytelling with proficiency, learning the rules and then breaking them.
Of course, how to tell stories well is a somewhat subjective subject, but most editors and agents will agree that there is a craft to it. A skill that I have learned and built upon through my experiences over a decade. I’ve had a mixture of eclectic experiences to get me to this point, where I feel I want to share my knowledge.
I am offering my services because I have experienced what it is like to feel stuck with my writing. I’ve felt the relief of having an experienced writer read my work with an unbiased, fresh perspective. I want to reciprocate the help I've received from individuals who have mentored me over the years.
As a multiracial woman, I want to create a more accessible art field to help lift the voices of writers who haven’t been heard until now. I strive to be inclusive, collaborate with an open mind, and aspire to build interpersonal relationships. The world is changing, and I want to be a part of the solution that makes a difference.
