About Me Photo of Emma CoxEmma Cox creates

There is a deep sense of accomplishment in creation. In taking a handful of raw materials, you can make something unique and personal to you. Something no one else can replicate.

If you have a passion for expression, then you will understand me. For those who don’t, perhaps something here will invoke the spark of creativity inside you.

The name

Rainy Day Writing came about because the Cornish climate is temperamental and it feels like it rains… a lot. Rainy days are good days for cosying up indoors to write (and drink copious amounts of tea).

A little about me

I am an introvert. I enjoy silence and solitude, or the company of one other where we can talk of anything and everything. I found a good friend in imagination and I made acquaintances with the people I found within the pages of the books I read.

I grew up with an interest in the earth and an interest in people, history and mythology. I stuggle to express myself through conversation and I discovered through writing and art, my quiet voice could become so much louder.

Overtime, I found the best way to still my busy imagination was to write. Each night, I empty the day into my diary, and I began to note down the stories in my head. For years, I toyed with them. I attempted NaNoWriMo a few times, but ultimately failed. But one day I said to myself, I will write a fantasy novel. I succeeded NaNoWriMo that year, and have succeeded it ever since. That novel is going through the rewrites and two more books are emptying from my head to page to make a trilogy.

My love of art developed into a passion for landscape photography, in which I met my husband, Neil. We still continue to take photos around our home in Cornwall.
