Writing from the Womb (WFW) is back! We kick off our workshop this weekend. This session of WFW has focused goals, clear intentions and hard deadlines. There is some fear that rises with deadlines but also a tremendous amount of excitement if we allow it. We are being called to sit down and write the story. Our writing goal is to have at least 50 pages of NEW writing. Breathe. Don’t be afraid. Trust that I can hold you during this process. We all need support and someone cheering for us. Writing is not easy. But I believe in you and I know you can do this! They call me the Writing Midwife for a reason, a title I carry with great privilege and pride, to be able to gently and sometimes not so gently, push you to dive deeper, to dig, and really live inside your story is a gift.
If you are receiving this message it is because you are ready! You answered the call and you are ready to step up your game. You expressed interest in getting to work and being supported during the writing process. I know how grueling writing can be. I know the voices that try to stop us from creating quite well, they have taken up residence in my home and mind, many a night and are my uninvited guests. The fear is real. The loneliness is real. The heaviness is real. But so is the joy. There is joy to be found in writing. I had forgotten why I picked up my pen in the first place and this year was reminded why I love this craft that has chosen me. I want to support you in getting back into that chair and honoring your stories. These days I am listening to my stories with intention. It’s not about what I want to say, it’s about what the story wants to reveal to me. What do my characters want to say? What is my story’s intention? This session our workshop is titled:
