Recently, this “journal writer” spent four glorious weeks in a class I would take over and over again.
Monday mornings my ritual for the last four weeks was an 11am pot of tea with three other students of the craft of writing and one FINE facilitator.
We can’t return enough to explore the basics and the most simple and exquisite writing exercises. One could warm up morning after morning and the written product will never be the same.
A simple launching point could reveal a great idea for a new blog post, a story, an article, or the focus required for some business writing that we might be procrastinating about. The warm up is the starting point and then comes the clarity we so desire and the creativity is again free to flow.
When we just begin and keep that pen moving and dig a little deeper minute by minute we have no idea what we might capture.
And then there is the sharing…
We are all so critical of ourselves BUT boy is it easy to give honest kudos to another writer.
The next time Kim Pearson of Primary Sources offers to teach this four week series, I’ll be singing her praises as the teacher/facilitator she is and invite those I know who crave to write juicy and free and on point and discover how good a writer they actually are. Or let your peers tell you how they here your writing.
I loved the writing exercises that were part of all the years of my elementary and middle and high school years and quite frankly I can’t remember why I stopped.
So, I created yet again a way to support myself and others that I am most excited about.
Stay tuned and tune in when you have the joy of writing with others.
