Writing to keep my head above water.

Sometimes life is a mess, but even at my worst I have seen that it can be beautiful. My writing allows my inner pessimist to scream when she needs it. Most of what you read here is written in one uninterrupted stream, with no editing as much as I can help it.

I hope you can find something here that speaks to you. I love what I do, and I love that I can share it with you, so thank you for giving me the time of day to do so.

  1. Hello!

    Have you every considered collaborating with other writers online? A few friends of mine and I are always looking for new poets to collaborate with. We have had great creative success doing this. If you feel like it is something you would be interested in, check out my blog, specifically some of the more recent collaborations that have a dual byline above the work. The link to my blog is http://www.cmrsyk1985.wordpress.com

    If you prefer email, my address is:


    I hope to hear from you soon.


    1. Hi Christopher!

      I have, I just never found the right way to go about it. I’ll certainly have another look at your blog.

      I would love to help out, be it actual writing or a helpful eye. If you have anything imminent you’d like my input with then you can email me at bethanie.hardie@yahoo.co.uk

      Thank you for passing this information onto me!


  2. Hi Bethanie. Good to see the split between writer and human being. At present I have my ‘writing’ blog as you know, and I have my Creative Writer and Artist website, but I’m now refining my efforts.
    I have somebody designing me a bespoke website which is purely for my books. Just as you seem to be in the process of doing, I’m aiming to break each site to hold what it says it holds; nothing more, nothing less.
    I personally like this theme you have here.

    1. Hi Tom. Thank you! When I made the personal blog I didn’t realise how much more that’d pile onto my plate, so I have since decided not to go there.
      I am working on a site at the moment for a business venture I am considering, but that is a work in progress, and won’t be up for a while – totally off topic from my writing, but something I want to do for a career.
      I have bethaniehardie.co.uk up and running now, it focuses on writing, and I have a blog section & my short stories etc as well on there. As my published work isn’t up to much at the moment I have that on there too.
      Let me know when you have your website set up, I’ll make sure to check it out.

      1. Hello again Bethanie. My third novel ‘Amsterdam Calling’ is now released and my new website is up, running, live and well. Feel free to go along and check it out.
        In the meantime, while I am on my infrequent blog patrol, I’ll head over and check out your site.
