Welcome to my site!
I’m Vicki Noll, a writer, potter, and creativity coach. I’m here to help fellow creatives overcome their internal obstacles and unleash their full potential.
My writing covers a wide range of topics, from travel and parenting to leadership and spirituality. I’ve been published in several literary journals and magazines, including Walking Magazine, Slice of Life Literary Journal, Grit Magazine, The Polishing Stone, and Foliate Oak Literary Journal. I’m proud to have received the Thurber Treat Award from the Thurber House in Columbus, Ohio, and to have finished 9th in the 2019 Writer’s Digest Annual Writing Contest.
I have a background in education as a Language Arts teacher and High School Counselor, which inspired me to specialize in Emotional Agility, Executive Functions, and Creativity coaching. I’ve worked with writers, potters, leaders, public speakers, and visual artists, helping them find their inspiration and follow their creative vision.
Pottery is a constant learning experience that helps me stay centered and challenged. It’s the perfect place for creativity to grow and for me to recharge.
When I’m not coaching or playing with clay, I’m hard at work on my latest writing projects: a cozy mystery, a short story, personal essays, and a memoir. These works are a reflection of my passion for storytelling and my commitment to helping others find their creative voice.
I live in Westerville, Ohio, with my brilliant tripod German Shepherd, Mika, and my smart husband. We love hanging out with our family, exploring the outdoors in our camper, and improving our ability to volley tennis balls. Thanks for stopping by my site, and I can’t wait to connect with you soon!
MY UNOFFICIAL BIO:
For those of you who are curious about the person behind the official bio, here are some more details.
As a writer, I’ve had my fair share of successes and rejections. While I have been published and received encouragement from editors and agents, I also have a large collection of rejection letters – almost museum quality, you might say. But that’s just part of the journey, and it’s comforting to know that the only thing that separates me from someone like Stephen King are the number of published books and short stories, movie deals, and houses.
I believe that exploring the world is one of the best ways to expand your mind and your soul. I love learning about different cultures, trying new foods, and seeing the beauty of this planet we call home. In fact, the only thing that separates me from someone like travel guru Rick Steves is the size of our budgets.
As a Writing and Life Coach, my mission is to help people tap into their creativity and unlock their full potential. Creating something of value – whether it’s a piece of writing, a photograph, a business, or even a simple sandcastle on the beach – can be an incredibly rewarding experience. And while I may not have as many published books as Martha Beck (yet!), we share a desire to empower others to live their best lives.
My ultimate goal is to inspire everyone in the world to create something every day, no matter how big or small. Whether it’s a work of art or a loving way of life, every creation has the power to make a difference in someone’s life.
Thank you for taking the time to read my UNOFFICIAL BIO, and I hope to connect with you soon!
