Promoting Creativity – Ashley Story

Thank you all for stopping by to read another Promoting Creativity, today I have a fellow writer and Tarot card reader Ashley! Be sure to check out the links I’ve put in here and follow her wherever you can. 🙂

1) Tell us a little bit about what you do.

Mmmm. Such a hard question! Let’s see.

For fun: I read fantasy and classic novels (classic retellings are my absolute favorite), I journal, write book synopsis of books I’ve not yet written. I am a full time auntie for a precious 2 year old Leo. I make wishlists on Amazon, create To-be read lists on Goodreads, and curate Spotify playlists.

For society: I am a full time front desk guest service agent at a hotel. When I’m not on my feet, I’m lounging on the floor slinging cards as a Tarot reader or working behind the scenes as a virtual assistant. I’m also a writer and queer femme witch dedicated to using my words to talk about social justice.

2) When and why did you start writing?

I started writing as a child in elementary school. I liked to re-imagine my favorite stories with girls and women as the lead characters (Sherlock as a woman was my favorite story I ever penned). My writing love continued through middle school creative writing lessons, in high school I wrote poems, songs, and scripts.

I continue to write because I can’t help it.

3) Tell us about a project that you are currently working on that has you really excited.

I am currently on a cozy mystery and/or urban fantasy series feature a queer lady couple. I’m honestly just playing around with the characters and plots, just to see what feels right. I don’t know that I intend to share or not?

For public sharing, I’ve been working on a newsletter. Trying to find my voice again as I navigate the world as a queer femme, witch, and with a handful of mental illnesses.

4) What are some of your goals for the future?

Hmmm. At this point, my goal is to have a website again where I can share my writings. Offer mini journaling courses for people with mental health issues. One on one personalized rituals and care for queer witches. I would also love to start creating some e-zines or free PDF downloads with my writings.

5) How can we support you?

If queer magic, journaling, and mental healthy talk is of interest to anyone, I would love for you to sign up for my newsletter.

If tarot readings interest you, feel free to email me at

Also, if my words inspire or help educate you in any way, I would love for you to consider dropping some cash into my PayPal. I have a lot of debt, can’t work the hours and wage I would like to, and every little bit helps.
