Write 4 a Day is a new series of monthly one-day writing retreats in upstate New York. While I shall be hosting the events, let me be clear that there is
- no workshop
- no agenda
- no required activities
- no assignments
- no schedule
- no WiFi
Write. Don’t write. Think. Daydream. Doodle. Outline. Come for the whole day or just for part of it; network, collaborate or write solo; wander the woods, hills, fields and streams of Universal Pathways for inspiration (bring sturdy shoes) or sit in a comfy chair and brainstorm. It’s up to you.
WHO – you!
WHAT – $20 fee for the space + any food you wish to eat (there’s a kitchen)
WHEN – inaugural meeting: Sunday, 20 September 2015, 10am-5pm
WHY – because you deserve a day to devote to your writing (or daydreaming or sketching or scheming or knitting or…)
I’m working on making How to Keep Writing with a Full Time Job into a more comprehensive guide. People have told me I need to provide a little more information and practical steps to reach the level of preparedness in that guide, so I’m using Write 4 a Day as an opportunity for me to develop a better guide that will help people carve out the necessary time in their busy lives and make the best use of that time, too. I also figure this will be a great way to get folks from all the writing communities I’m in to meet each other. Writing is hard: friends help!
By necessity, this will be a moveable feast as far as dates go, but I will try to get the word out in a timely manner.
