Through 2022, the writing group at Womenspace waxed and waned, but 6 or so people

wrote regularly. We call it writing practice, after Natalie Goldberg, who says that to be a writer “just write!”.

We start our writing practice with a topic that suits the day. It might be what’s on our minds, what’s happening locally or with a poem, piece of literature a photo, or just an object  – such as “carrots” or “my mother’s hair”.

Then, for 10 minutes we write, letting the words tumble out and the images form as they will. The quest, never simple, is to turn off the busy mind and inner critic and just keep the hand moving, writing whatever comes up. Then we take turns reading what we have written.

The journal quickly fills and after a couple of months, you can look back and finesse a piece of your writing that still speaks to you.
