Hi, I’m Martina or as some like to call me, Marti, mummy, wifey, gipsy, off-with-the-fairies. I am all of those things, plus more. I am a Mum (but not always a good one) to two high-energy and wildly creative boys, Wifey to my ‘want-to-be’ 1950’s husband, friend to all and I’m known around the town for helping others more than I help myself.
What I don’t say out loud is a blog about writing the things I struggle to say. Exploring my innermost thoughts on topics such as family and love, fitness and food, careers and goals, mental health and finding the elusive balance between all of these things. It may be confronting and a little bit awkward, but I hope to deliver empathy and enrich your day with laughter and inspiration.
The force behind starting this blog is the Certificate IV in Professional Writing and Editing course I am currently studying. However, my motivation to blog about my life and the things that are real and important to me is to invoke my inner-writer again, practice the craft and make some beautiful friendships along the way.
If you lack the confidence to speak honestly about how you feel or struggle to speak out and be heard, then know that you are not alone. Writing is a fantastic way to unscramble your thoughts, convert them to words and confidently articulate What YOU don’t say out loud.
Come with me as I divulge my life, the funny, serious, happy, sad and everything I learn in-between. If my words resonate with you, please click follow and share with your friends, so together we can work out the funk in our heads and make peace with our hearts. I welcome your comments, feedback and any opportunity to develop my writing further.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog – happy reading!
