👋 Hello, I'm Emma. I write non-fiction, mostly about personal development, sometimes about productivity, creativity and culture.

I'm joining writing.exchange after bouncing round a couple of instances over a couple of years. Having dipped into the local timeline I feel like here is a place I can settle.

The quality of the search function in the tool I use to track my reading is the deal breaker for me. I was too often disappointed with the first replacement I found for Goodreads. Happily though Epilogue is spot on. Thanks @manton

Finished reading: Gratitude by Oliver Sacks 📚
