I signed up for another writing class in the city but it was cancelled. Bummer. But not. This time around it would have been a big distraction. I’m ready to write it. Got all I need. All the writing books tell you to find your own method – daily word count, time slots. I’ve tried them all with varying results. Ultimately it comes down to the D-word. Dedication. Dedication to the one you love…

The last couple years I lived on Whidbey Island a feral cat found my backyard a nice hunting ground. He (or she) sometimes sat for hours staring in my direction, oddly, I noticed, on days when I’d neglected my writing. Ever since I’ve considered any cat that crosses my path – especially a black one – my muse.
Saturday, JUNE 3, 10:30 am – 4:30 pm we’re writing again. Join me and my good FRIEND.

Join me for another Virtual WriteAway over the shores of Puget Sound. 10:30 am – 4:30 pm Pacific Time.
Click HERE to read about how these began and for a prompt or two, if you like. Write whatever you please. Bring your pen or keyboard to the view, even if you can only fly by for fifteen minutes or an hour during the six – I’ll be here, cheering you on. I believe everything we bring to and express in our writing has grace, beauty, and power, and that everything to do with writing – especially our desire to – rises, shimmering EVANESCENT.

Join me virtually! Monday MAY 8, Thursday MAY 11, Saturday MAY 27.
10:00 am – 3:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time. I’ll be here on Bainbridge Island, WA writing away on several things. I’ve pulled out a few more projects that have been stowed in boxes and bins long enough. Seeing them with new eyes there’s a surge of creative energy building. I’m feeling optimistic about sticking with them to the end of first rough drafts on each of three, and a sixth draft of the fourth. I’m not jinxing them with big goals or deadlines. Going with the flow. Easy and fun. My only rule is a little bit each day. Even picking up a page and reading it counts as a little bit. Heck – showing up at all counts!
As always, I’ll have my trusty timer handy and a few other friends:
Are you in? Let me know in the comments if you’d like a cheer from me. Always happy to support the process. Whoo-hoo! Go – go – GO! xo Pierr
