I'm Annika Spalding, an award-winning author of six books, a Writing Coach and Workshop Facilitator. I also have a blog and podcast, and have been featured on BBC WM radio on several occasions.

Despite my desire to constantly encourage people to embrace their life journey, I've yet to share the details of mine.

I've shared details, in brief, of growing up with domestic violence, of experiencing anxiety and depression, of being a single parent, but there is so much more that I'm holding back.

I'd say it has been mostly fear that has kept me quiet, a need to create a barrier between myself and the world (or myself and the past), and I've still been able to connect with people on some level without really exposing my experiences.

However.

I know there is a story to be found in my life story and I feel like it is time to start writing about it. I need to shed a light on the trauma, disappointment, challenges and epiphanies, and I need to do it now.

I know you all get so much value, inspiration and insight when I do get personal, so maybe it's time to use my story to help you with yours.

My presence on social media is very positive and I know love my posts on Instagram, but I think it's time to invite you into the depths of my experiences and show you how it all started.

I'm not a perfect person and nothing has ever been as easy as it looks. My story is one of survival, and with some encouragement, I'm willing to start sharing it.

As much as I have a story to tell, I'm also interested in knowing what impacts you, dear reader. Consider this my virtual writing room, my place to explore ideas, expose my vulnerability and share raw pieces that haven't been seen anywhere else before. 

It takes great courage to take ownership of your story, especially when witnessed by an audience, but I can think of no better accountability buddy than you.

Without your support, I wouldn't even know I could do this. I'd love you to join me in this next chapter. It wouldn't be the same without you.
