Go on as many adventures as possible.
I often travel by book.
I am Rachael (Raggie), a confused millennial and freelance writer with a love for words and an infinite curiosity. This is where I share what I read, what I write, where I wander and the hidden treasures I find in my hometown, Morecambe Bay.
Reading, writing and wandering…
Growing up, I didn’t really have the opportunity to travel. Living in a small and forgotten seaside town in the North West of England, meant that aside from the ever-changing colours of the sky across the bay at sunset, life and my surroundings remained pretty much the same. My fascination with reading and writing became an escape from this world and any time in-between was spent wandering around Morecambe in search of cheerful flowers, watercolour sunsets and beautiful buildings. I have tried my best to transform the magic that I find into words from poetry and short stories to little glimpses into the past, I hope you find something that inspires you.
Every single one of us has our own unique and inspirational story to tell and I want to help share it. In this section you will find real stories from people across the world, sharing their experiences and keeping sh*t real! If you have an inspirational story to share, contact me and we can add you to the growing list of authors on Raggie Writes.
In the heart of the North West you will find the forgotten seaside town, Morecambe. Famed for art deco architecture, comedy geniuses, potted shrimps and its beautifully rich history. I hope some of my adoration for my hometown rubs off on you in this section of my blog!
Writers of the world! Gather your tools! Every Wednesday I post a writing prompt under the ‘writing‘ section, to help you get your inspiration flowing for your next bestseller! I share what I learn along the way, blogging and freelancing, in ‘writing tips‘ and I even attempt some poetry every now and again.
For those of us who just can’t take our noses out of books! In the ‘reading’ section of my blog, you can find the occasional book review, book hauls, reading lists (under TBR) and book releases; enough to satisfy my fellow bibliophile’s bookish curiosity. I also like to celebrate my favourite authors birthdays with the occasional post, like Charles Dickens!
I didn’t get the chance to travel much growing up so when I finally took my first holiday in 20 years in February 2020, I vowed that I would go on many more adventures! Whilst Covid 19 has made travelling a little more difficult, it has given me the time to start my project “The Town that England Forgot”, searching for the beauty in my hometown.
Getting to know me, getting to know all about me! In the diary section of my website you will stumble upon my random ramblings. Here I will share some of my struggles, some of my achievements, some of my thoughts and some of my personal stories. I hope that whatever you read here makes you think or makes you smile.
