Jane and I have been working for awhile to figure out how to connect writing partners in the same way we connected. We feel it has been, and still is, incredibly beneficial to talk each morning at 7, then, write, and talk again.
We couldn't seem to figure out the logistics and then, like, that, we learned of NING, a social network. We signed up yesterday and today began putting up content and figuring out what we want to say to invite those who are interested in writing and having a writing partner, into our own particular nest of expertise.
We will open it up in the next few days. The first people who come will probably need to find and bring their own writing partner, though you could also come and see who else shows up. We have no idea who will come but we are hoping there are a fair number of you who have been wanting a writing commitment with another person. You could also commit to three or four people, but we feel that might dilute the experience. It is easy to commit to one, and one feels a responsibility that is easily honored that way.
Those of you who have been with me from the beginning of this blog know how Jane and I began. We usually wrote poems, because that was a form we both knew. It was a chance for us to connect with another human being, without judgment, and to allow a creative verbal flow.
We both feel the writing together has changed our lives, given us meditation time, focus, relief, and peace.
We recommend it and invite you to join Connection Well, as soon as we have it set up. We are hoping to complete the set-up in the next few days.
