Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop

I don't know about any of you, but half of my anxiety about blogging, comes from 1) just writing to the general public; 2) Creativity and working through "page-fright" and probably the biggest reason; not getting encouragement, wisdom and empathy from fellow bloggers; even though I'm really fortunate to belong to this blog where each of us are really supportive of each other and our whole process.

Mama Kat has a great blog and I just read today about "The Writer's Workshop" which sounds exactly like what I need and I think many of you out there might benefit as well. Here are the directions for writing and being a member of the workshop and by the way, it's open to everyone...

It’s never to late to jump in!! Here is what you must do:

  • Choose a prompt that inspires you most from the list of prompts I provide each week and think about what you’re going to write.
  • Write.
  • Come back Thursday and paste the URL from the workshop post into the Mister Linky that will be up…this way anyone can click on your name and head over to your place to see what you wrote. Likewise, I encourage you to click on at least the three links above your name so that you can read what other people are writing and learn more about them.

She's a former high-school English teacher so knows of what she speaks. I'd love to see your writing and hopefully you'll be a fellow writer at this workshop.

Sounds interesting. I'm going to pop over and take a look.

Hmmm - liked her sample prompts - this may motivate me to start writing again. Thanks :)

Wendy said...

oooh, kittens I like that, Debra, I thought you were going to suggest something a little more provocative ;)

Mary, I hope to see you over there...

Rochelle, anything that inspires your creativity, go for it...You have so much to offer!
