A little bit more about me, K.E. Creighton

I am a writer and reader who believes in the power of storytelling. Never pretentious. Rarely conventional. Occasionally poetic. Often philosophical. Always human.

I have a master’s degree in English with a concentration in Latin American and Latino Studies, a B.A. in Philosophy, and a B.A. in English. After my time in academia and working for various businesses and corporations and publications, I decided to become a freelance writer, which was one of the best decisions I have ever made. To say that I write for a living still gives me a thrill every day, and the flexible hours and working conditions don’t hurt either. I am currently taking a step back from my regular freelance work, however, to work full time on my debut novel until it is finished (hopefully by mid-summer, 2024).

I live in Colorado, USA, where I love to hike in the mountains and be outdoors as much as I can with my husband and two hound dog mixes, Lilly and Daisy. And when I’m not outdoors or reading or writing, I am continuously perfecting a variety of my favorite vegetarian and vegan recipes.

You can connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Goodreads.

Some of my Philosophies

On Writing

Always start writing with a vital question in mind or to better understand an emotional state. The best writing usually necessitates combining these two elements with great discretion and diplomacy, regardless of what’s written.

Fiction often reveals fundamental truths and humaneness that nonfiction cannot.

Write before you are ready, and you will always be ready to write.

Keeping a consistent daily writing habit is the most important thing any writer can do if they want to keep writing. The muses are not always reliable, but the passing of time is.

You cannot be a prolific writer without also being a prolific reader.

On Reading

Everything read can inspire something that still needs to be written, if it’s read with the appropriate attitude, objective curiosity, and sincere empathy without harsh judgment.

Read as often as you write. Read every day.

“Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it.”- Hannah Arendt

On Life

Be curious, not judgmental.

Never lose your sense of wonder.

Stay grounded and grateful every day, but don’t forget to dream from time to time.

Try to leave more than you take as often as possible.

Do hard things that need doing without reservation but with grace and humility.

Question and appreciate everything in equal measure.
