Someday, I’m going to be a writer.

That was my mantra for most of my life. I had homemade collages of Margaret Atwood and Jack Kerouac peppering my walls, I had a deep desire to write books, and I had stacks of journals full of my private writing… but I was hiding. I didn’t believe I was good enough to call myself a “writer,” so I never shared my thoughts or my work. I didn’t know how to begin my creative journey.

I just kept telling myself:

Someday… when I have more time. Someday… once I have money. Someday… once I know what my genre is. Then I can start.

Someday… I will feel creative + soulful + free + on-purpose. Just not today.

Someday. The word feels so heavy and ominous, much like how I felt as I dragged myself out of bed every morning knowing that I was once again going to neglect my dreams.

The thing about Someday is… it never comes.


I’m Kelsey Horton, an author and creativity coach. I help writers and artists tap into their authentic voices, bust through their creative blocks, and share their work with the world.

Things have changed dramatically since my “Someday” days. After neglecting my creative dreams for years, I started this blog that has helped thousands of readers around the world break through stuckness and write their hearts out.

I published my first book: Robot Coconut Trees: Break Through Writer’s Block, Unleash Your Creative Voice, and Become the Writer You Already Are.

And now I offer private coaching for writers, artists, and creatives who are ready to get unstuck, release the incredible creative force within them, and unapologetically share their work with their growing audience. More info on that here.


Even though writing is my natural creative medium — this website isn’t solely for writers.

It’s for anyone who wants to wake up, show up, and take action to create a bigger, bolder, and more expansive life… while also practicing deep compassion for themselves at every point along the way.

Tall order? Yes.

Are we up for it? Absolutely.

Whether your art form is writing, or painting, or making ice cream, or showing up as the brightest parent and partner you can possibly be – it’s time to step further into your greatness. It’s time to burn a little brighter.


Peace + Creative Miracles,

  1. Hi Kelsey, I recently reblogged your amazing piece about capturing details in writing and your dance life. And I’ve just nominated you for a Liebster award. There’s no obligation to accept, but if you do, I’ll forward you the rules of engagement. I also linked to your blog in my recent post about the award.
    All best!

    1. Hey Rachel! I’m so sorry for the delay, I got the notification but couldn’t figure out what post you had commented on — my bad entirely.

      Thanks so much for your kind words about my blog. I don’t know what a Liebster Award is (other than what I checked out on your blog), but I am honored that you chose me for it and will gladly accept 🙂 How should we connect about this? My e-mail is if that works easiest. Wishing you a happy healthy 2015 full of abundance and soul — I will have to check out your book this year!
