Writing a Collection of Fables

I’m writing a collection of fables (short stories with philosophical lessons portrayed through animal characters). Inspired by books like The Little Prince, my goal is to write whimsical tales that feed the soul, tug the heart and spark the mind. I’m really enjoying the process of writing these stories, and can’t wait to share them with you soon.

I’m also illustrating the fables in the book. Here are a few sneak peeks:

Why I’m Writing This Book

In this video, I share a bit more about why I’m writing this book:


One Year of Writing

I’ve spent over a year working on this book, and in this video I share some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way:

My biggest takeaway is that if you have an idea for a book, and it’s been bugging you for a long while, write it! At a minimum, you’ll let go of a creative burden and feel lighter. At best, you’ll go on to edit and publish a book into the world. At first, the idea of writing a book seemed incredibly intimidating. But with the help of habits, community and a little self-compassion, I found a way forward. For more on how I did it, check out my recent newsletter, Showing Up.
