Welcome to my online home. I talk about business writing and how to make our words better—more open and intimate and beautiful. There’s also plenty of jasmine tea drinking and cloud watching. I’m glad you’re here.
I've been an independent writer for the last decade, working one-on-one with lovely people—creators, teachers, helpers and healers—to craft words full of heart AND impact for business websites, books, programs and blogs.
Guiding them to articulate their personal vision of service, and watching the awakened writing process light up their self-belief and energy, is a genuine joy.
At the same time, I've been living with chronic illness (Crohn’s) and the often-accompanying duo of anxiety-depression. I've also, as many of us self-employed creatives do, struggled with voicelessness—with feeling disconnected from my words and work.
All this has challenged me to dive deeper, beyond simplistic answers and rules, to ask difficult questions of myself and the world, and to map (and re-map) my paths of meaning.
These experiences have enriched my writing process, and honed the special capacities I bring to our work together: discernment, vulnerability, meaning-making, and the courage to navigate the contradictions of our creative humanness.
Read more about awakened writing, deep diving and exquisite messiness in my notebook.
I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia, with my husband and rescue cat.
In case you're wondering, I use 'beclei' in my web address and social media handles as a short form of my full name, Bec Leigh.
