I’ve been doing daily writing based on my own prompts, These are coaching inquiries that I often ask my clients. Some of them are ones I wish someone would ask me.
One of the hardest prompts to write from was: “What are you afraid of?”
It was hard to stay with my fears for a full two pages. And yet, I feel plenty of fear. Our world has tipped even more toward a fear-based experience.
And yet, it’s hard to be with our fears. It’s hard to pinpoint what we are afraid of.
In all my years as a writer and writing coach, I have seen the profound benefits of staying with an inquiry and letting ink lead us to deeper truths. When we are able to explore what’s inside via our pen or keyboard, we get so so so so so much more than when these thoughts and feelings just rumble around inside us.
I am hosting Pop-Up Writing Salons where we give space to ourselves and our ink to write. After a brief welcome and introduction to our writing guidelines, we will dive into a series of writing sessions. Using my prompts, we’ll explore what’s true for us around the topic of fear.
These are not salons to ‘get writing done’ but instead to get in contact with ourselves and what we feel and think. There will be no critiquing or reading of our writing. There will be no sharing of our writing. Instead, you will be invited to reflect on how the writing was for you, shared in a simple and easy way, if you wish.
I am skilled at hosting a safe, supportive space where our we and our writing finally get the space that they need. We will be using my private Zoom channel, and you may choose to be on video or not. You can also call in via telephone.
Join us this Thursday, March 12th at 2:00 PT, 3:00 MT, 4:00 CT, 5:00 ET, 9:00 am on the 13th in Sydney to explore fear.
