About Natalie

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Natalie Julia and I am the creator and face behind WritingByNat. I’m 18 years old and a passionate Writer/Poet from Australia.

I bought my first journal in prep and it changed my life. I love creating and everything I create really speaks to me. Essentially, writing helps me empathize, relate and connect with others, especially like-minded humans.

It’s hard to show the world your authentic self, but it’s the best decision I ever made. As a survivor of Domestic Violence, I found a light in my dark time. Writing was my therapy. It was how I expressed myself when I felt no one could understand.

My first public piece of my childhood can be found Here:  My story

The response was overwhelming and reached out to many. That’s when I knew this was my mission and this is what I wanted to do forever, so i pushed myself to kick-start “WritingByNat.” My readers appreciate my unfiltered and outspoken approach.

I have also had my work published in publications such as QuoteCatalog and ThoughtCatalog – an online American magazine.

One of my viral hits ‘9 Reasons Why Intelligent People Have Fewer Friends’ has reached 500,000 reads globally and growing. This is an article I’m particularly proud of, written off personal opinion and reflection. You can read it here: 9 Reasons Why Intelligent People Have Fewer Friends

As a very honest person, I’m glad to see people understanding my pieces. I’m here for the people that are in tune with my writing and really hear my voice. I want to start conversations and pose the questions of “life,” the wild adventure we’re all trying to figure out.

I’m here to spread my love and do what I’m extremely passionate about. I have a vision to make a difference through my words.

For those who are new to my blog – I write honest, forward pieces on real life stuff -anything I want to share with the world. The genre of my work is creative non-fiction – primarily in a personal, reflective style. The form ranges from essays and listicles to short articles.

Thankyou to my readers for joining my movement! Happy reading and I’d love to hear from you: writingbynat@outlook.com
