Join Me: Write Away!

January 12, 2017 § 14 Comments


For years I’ve wanted to have a writing group but I’m such an introvert when it comes to gatherings (like wanting to be home after about 15 minutes) I never thought outside the box. Till November when I took a novel writing class at Hugo House  and enjoyed all 14 of my fellow novelists (plus our stellar instructor, Waverly Fitzgerald) so much, that I wanted to keep meeting. My novel was fleshing out from it. I felt like a gradeschooler hollering on the playground, “Helloooo, I’m free if anybody needs one more for Red Rover or Kickball!” I’d ferry over any time to meet at the library or a coffee shop – just email me! I was totally obsessed about it, with a giddy kind of energy, starting to plan how this might happen. Waverly suggested I pick a day and time weekly or monthly for folks to get away, to come here, to Bainbridge Island.

So I did…with the invitation above, plus directions, my phone number, places to eat and/or write, using my apartment as a base to come and go from…fully aware of the possibility that it might be a no-show event. Which meant – gulp – I needed to be here writing all day with Me, Myself & I, just in case.

That’s what happened. And it was glorious! So many pages written. Here’s what I did (see photo below). #1 – My trusty egg timer ruled the day. #2 – I drew one Inquiry Card , created by Sylvia Nibley, and wrote for 15 minutes answering the question for myself. Then I drew a second card and wrote for 15 minutes as my novel’s protagonist. #3 – Flipping open to anywhere in Julia Cameron‘s The Right to Write collection of essays, I set the timer for 30 minutes and wrote from the “Initiation Tool” at the end of the essay as myself. Then I set the timer for 30 minutes and wrote in the voice of another character from the novel. I took stretch breaks – had snacks (chocolate, of course) and plenty of water – took a 30-minute lunch break – and basically repeated the pattern the rest of the day. About 3:00 I started falling asleep so I stopped at 3:30 and read aloud to Me, Myself & I what I’d written.writeawaytools-pierrmorgan-wordpress

Now, committed to these next two Saturdays (and much preferring my group of One), I thought it would be fun to make it A VIRTUAL experience, opening it up to anyone on the planet. I’d love to have you join me – virtually, that is. Wherever you live or roam, grab a pen or keyboard and…Write Away!  (Sat Jan 14, 10:30 am-4:30 pm Pacific time)

xo Pierr – P.S. Let me know in the comments how your day went, and if you actually travel.
