All Things Wild and Free
All Things Wild and Free
The Pen and Portal All Things Wild and Free Workshop is a six-week endeavor that includes two hours of writing per week for six weeks, or a total of twelve hours of creative writing. This can be done at your own pace entirely. In order to make it most accessible, the prompts are broken down so that if you choose to write in chunks of fifteen to twenty minutes per day, you can do that. Or spend two hours weekly on Sunday afternoons. Or if you find yourself with an entire weekend when you have the house to yourself, no distractions and a burning desire to write, you can tackle it all at once.
This workshop is being offered at $49 as part of a special promotion! In exchange for this promotional price, I ask that you please send me a review of the workshop at the end of your six week course, or at any stage you feel comfortable.
You may email the review by replying to any of the workshop emails you receive during the six weeks!
Also included each week is an exercise in grounding, also referred to here as creative inspiration. These are offered to help you prepare to write, to arrive for your creative journey, to ground energetically to Source and to fuel your creative fire. I understand these practices and concepts may seem far out for some. But I include these suggestions because they not only worked for me, but have become such an integral part of my own creative process that to leave them out would feel less than authentic.
It’s important to start any creative practice with openness and presence of mind and body. I have seen these grounding exercises work for hundreds of people in dozens of face to face writing workshops. So even if the practices are unfamiliar to you, I encourage you to try them and see how it affects the flow of your writing, for better or worse. But I already know which it will be.
George Bernard Shaw once said:
“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, the being a force of nature...I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”
You are truly a force of nature, and Write Your Light is an opportunity to help fan those flames inside of you that burn so brightly. Let’s take the time together to loosely contemplate what it means to exist here in the perfect balance of past and future that we call the present, to be preset in building a foundation for ourselves and future generations, and see that manifest itself on the page in a way that is resonant to you. Or if it’s more comfortable, use the exercises as a way to focus deeply on your characters and see them develop and evolve.
This workshop is an exercise in creativity but also an invitation to dig deeper into the truth. As you write you may want to bring to mind for you, or your character: an ideal day look like, a dream job, reminders of favorite things from childhood, activities that give you energy rather than exhaust you, you or your characters’ unique gifts and abilities, the people and things that inspire you or your character, animals and spirits you connect with, creative arts that appeal to you. But none of this is required, because the writing will take you where you need to go.
The meditations and creative inspiration, questions asked and writing prompts offered in Write Your Light were all designed with the intention to hold a space for you to come to the writing table open to the possibility of examining not only who you, or your character, are in your body, in the world, and in relation to others, but also to look forward to who you want to be, or want your character to be, with the clear and indisputable understanding that you are only limited by the confines of your own mind.
Love and light,
