It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
I truly believe that writing can heal our hearts … Even if you never share your writing, the release of the energy and emotion within your body can be truly life saving. So, for those of you that are interested in sharing your story in a bigger way, this blog, The Writing Nook, is for you. And, for those of you that just want to heal and release your story, this blog is for you too … For those of you that don’t know if writing is for you or not, I’m sure you’ll find something in here to resonate with as well. Enjoy … and please … I’d love to hear what your thoughts are in the comments below. Can you relate? Let us know what you think – Blessings SDJ♥
Writing is often an act of solidarity, but that can be a lonely road, and it doesn’t have to be that way. Many writers find they do their best writing in quiet without distraction, but what about time spent outside of writing? Wouldn’t it be nice to connect with others on a similar journey? To know that you’re not alone in your craft?
There are many ways writers can feel connected, and below I’ve added three ideas you can utilize to find a connection with other writers at any level of your writing journey.
With any of the above options, I’d encourage you to take some time to find a few that resonate with you and begin there. Be mindful not to spread yourself too thin or you won’t have time for the task at hand, which is writing! However, joining a few online writing groups and perhaps having a local group to attend on a monthly basis might bring you just the connection you’re looking for.
If you like the idea of traveling to a writer’s retreat to spend a full weekend immersed in writing, relaxation and fun, then I invite you to check out our upcoming Write in Paradise Retreat 2018 that I’m co-facilitating with Sunny in Islamorada, Florida this May. The retreat is open to writers of all levels, and we only have a few spots left! Is one for YOU? Find out here.
