Born in Nova Scotia, Canada—the firstborn daughter of a county preacher,— and raised just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, Jeanette LeBlanc spent most of her early years working very hard to be a good girl. One day she woke up and decided to write her way out of her own life.

Things haven't been the same since.

Jeanette is a speaker, writing teacher, group facilitator, coach, and mentor to a motley collection of humans who are determined to stop seeking permission and claim sovereignty in their creativity, relationships, and lives.

A queer single mother of two entirely self-possessed teen daughters, Jeanette left a heterosexual marriage when she came out at 32 years of age, rapidly deconstructing not only her present reality but the only fu

How Do You Know If It’s Time To Write Your Book?

Tell the truth: how many times has someone told you “My god, you need to write a book”?

How many times have you thought it yourself?

How often do you lay awake at night, dreaming of seeing your words laid out on the page?

How many times have you wondered what would change if you let loose the story that has been building inside you?

How often do you wish you had the support, knowledge, and space to b

“Grief.

It resists all of our timelines and attempts to control.

It is a wild animal of a thing, primal and raw in one moment, soft and tender and wounded in the next. Our bodies in those moments? Just portals for something so much bigger than we could ever be.

That’s the way of love and loss and grief and joy and all we hold in our wild and unruly hearts. Larger than anything we could construct to attempt to contain the whole of this human thing, as messy as it can sometimes be.

But when grief comes, mark my words, it will ultimately have its way.”

“Grief doesn't answer to the rules of good sense, she doesn’t answer to any rules at all. Grief is a willful mother fucker who takes what she wants and spits us out where she will.

She will not be rushed. Refuses to be contained. The body of you can sustain blow after blow after blow and remain standing, and then the smallest of breezes will bring the whole thing down.

It took me a long time to make peace with this. To make friends with the raw, keening animal edge of it all. To understand that we all carry our grief differently, that it stacks and morphs and twists and hides—and then when it is ready, it rushes in, eager to finally have its say.”

Quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Out there somewhere there is a love who will never dream of calling you too much. Who speaks, like you, in poetry and candlewax and stardust. Who runs outside on stormy nights to howl at the moon. Who collects bones and sings incantation and talks to the ancestors. And that lover, when you find him or her, will see you and know you – just as you are and just as you should be.

And they will say yes. Yes, you. I will go there with you. I have been waiting for this.”
Jeanette LeBlanc

“Butterflies are beautiful, but the process of emerging from the chrysalis and spreading your wings can hurt like fucking hell. But still, you will survive the transformation (over and over again) and you will fly. Remember this when it hurts the most. This is the metamorphosis, the going down to liquid, and the rising again. It’s no joke – but damn, it’s one hell of a journey.”
Jeanette LeBlanc

“yes, I have feelings
and no, I’m not afraid of them
not even the shadowy ones
that you’d rather ignore
i gather them in
welcome them home
give them space to breathe
and light them on glorious fire
just to see
what might be illuminated
while they burn”
Jeanette LeBlanc

“Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.”
Henry Rollins

“As long as we don't die, this is gonna be one hell of a story.”
John Green, Paper Towns

“I'll never forget how the depression and loneliness felt good and bad at the same time. Still does.”
Henry Rollins, The Portable Henry Rollins

“Someday, I would like to go home. The exact location of this place, I don't know, but someday I would like to go. There would be a pleasing feeling of familiarity and a sense of welcome in everything I saw. People would greet me warmly. They would remind me of the length of my absence and the thousands of miles I had travelled in those restless years, but mostly, they would tell me that I had been missed, and that things were better now I had returned. Autumn would come to this place of welcome, this place I would know to be home. Autumn would come and the air would grow cool, dry and magic, as it does that time of the year. At night, I would walk the streets but not feel lonely, for these are the streets of my home town. These are the streets that I had thought about while far away, and now I was back, and all was as it should be. The trees and the falling leaves would welcome me. I would look up at the moon, and remember seeing it in countries all over the world as I had restlessly journeyed for decades, never remembering it looking the same as when viewed from my hometown.”
Henry Rollins

“I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.”
Henry Rollins
