All About

Greetings! I’m Judy McNutt writer, published author, mentor, and muse. I thrive and work in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego, California, USA. I founded Igniting Your Writing (IYW) to help retired and non-working women get clear, connected, and writing to do their best work in the world, to express their true nature, desire, and purpose, and to create worlds!



Here’s what has been said about working with me-

“The richness of working with Judy is like no other writing group. Healing without having to “go there.” We just have fun, the rest comes quite naturally.” 

“I was scared at first. I thought, ‘Maybe I won’t write much or share.’ I did BOTH and was overjoyed! I never miss a week.”  

“This writing group is great. I love it! It feels like we are in the same room writing together and yet I am three time zones away.”

“I realize from writing in Judy’s group, that I need and want to make time to write SOMETHING every day!”

“After a 10-year painful dry spell, I finally experienced the exhilaration of breaking free from The Blocks.”

“Judy’s soothing presence inspires me. There is just no other way to say it!”


For nearly two decades, deep love and compassion for highly sensitive creative young people kept me engaged and constantly learning. After school found me working with creative adults with sensory processing disorders and other brain functioning difficulties.These experiences and wide-ranging exploration on my own lead me to design my innovative energy work for students and clients alike. At home, I write, practice my signature meditation and play with Creative Energy every day. “My world-service passion is to guide you to the expansion of the voice of your Inner Writer.

A Founding Associate of the Brain Integration Institute, and now the founder of Igniting Your Writing, my highest wish is to offer support for you who do not yet believe in your own creative power or who believe it is stuck somewhere.

“Creative souls (and you who cannot yet see your creativity) can easily become overwhelmed by mundane and painful lives. You beat yourself up for not implementing all of those books, classes, webinars, and retreats into your writing practice. You may already have spent a ton of money, with nothing to show for it. You long for a deepening authentic connection with your unique gifts and you are searching for ways to express that in the world or at the very least, on paper.”

My unique Heart-Centered Writing Groups are healing hearts and minds and birthing the True Nature of Creative Expression into the World. Reach out for healing, guidance, and creative rather than dogmatic spiritual practices. Write me at
