Writing my way home



Last year I took Jeff Brown’s ‘Writing your Way Home’ course.  It was an online course over 6 weeks.writing

Due to other commitments at the time I just about managed to cover the one hour long audio session each week.  And I wrote one or two pieces  a week that I submitted to our online group.  I could have submitted at least 20 pieces a week.

Just because I didn’t manage to do more in the 6 weeks, I didn’t beat myself up.  I knew that my own writing path was just beginning and that it could take weeks, months, years even for my true writing path to develop and grow.

And, to quote Jeff, ‘even if you feel like you didn’t make much progress in the last weeks, don’t let that stop you.

My writing plan

  • retake Jeff Brown’s course in April
  • write here every 2 weeks about things that make me smile – trees, creativity, family, writing, travel
  • to dedicate every Tuesday to write for me
  • dedicate Monday afternoons to write for clients
  • submit at least one piece each week to our ongoing group
  • find the places and spaces that enliven my words
  • keep sharing my unique voice

Writing – ‘home is where the ‘art’ is’

I wrote in a recent post that I remain rooted in my ‘art’ and I’m branching out in ‘creativity’.  There is ‘creativity’ and ‘art’ in all of us and it’s never too late to begin creative endeavours.

creativityI do  believe that creativity is at the root of happiness.  And if we’re all able to tap in to our unique creative spirit at least once a day our spirits would remain lifted.

So, as I continue to ‘write my way home’, I wish everyone a happy and creative new year.
