Hi, I’m Joy Adan. I’m a 30-something, storytelling, coffee-drinking, book-devouring, ocean-obsessed freelance writer, brush lettering enthusiast, speaker and content producer, based in Sydney, Australia. This is my blog.
You’ll find some of my stories and art here, along with my
advice about attempt at balancing the creative career + family life hustle.
I write because I believe in the power of stories. The words that fuel our stories can uplift and empower if we choose them carefully and intentionally. A great story opens minds and transforms hearts. A great story fuels learning and inspires action. A great story turns an everyday meal into a lifelong memory. Our lives, our histories and our cultures are a collection of these stories.
As a writer, my goal is to create connections between people through these stories and to record the everyday discovery of something personal and precious. As you read these posts, I hope you find something precious too. Whether it’s encouragement, entertainment, education or empathy, if you find it I hope you share it and create a great story of your own.
