Hello, welcome to Maureen’s Writing Studio

Hello, lovely soul! I’m Maureen, your creative confidant and the heart behind Maureen’s Writing Studio. Here in my little slice of the internet, I invite you to step into a world of stories, art, and inspiration. Whether you’re an aspiring writer, a seasoned creative, or someone looking for a spark of magic, you’re in the right place.

My Story

Born and raised in the Netherlands, I’ve always been captivated by the power of words and the worlds they create. I am a writer of short stories that dance in the liminal spaces between reality and fantasy. My creativity doesn’t stop at prose; I’m also an enthusiast for generating visual art through MidJourney, an AI for text-to-image.

My Mission

My daily goal is simple: do something creative. Whether it’s penning a short story, generating an illustration, or sharing a “SchrijfSprankje” to inspire fellow writers, I make sure each day is touched by creativity. My mission is to guide and inspire you to explore, create, and flourish in your own creative endeavors.

My Aesthetic

My studio embodies a soft-focused realism; think pastel academia with a touch of hazy, dreamlike quality. Here, you’ll find a blend of pastel hues of lilac, silver, and teal, much like the morning light that illuminates my ideal creative space. I strive to reflect the natural world, my ultimate source of inspiration, through my work.

What You’ll Find Here

Stories: Immerse yourself in narratives spun from the depths of my imagination.

Inkling Inspirations: Daily (deep) dives into the creative process, tailored to invigorate your own journey in writing and beyond.

Creative Quirks: A peek behind the curtain, featuring my unique writing rituals, AI adventures, and more. It’s a space that celebrates the quirkier side of creativity.
