Hello, world! I’M CAFFEINATED!
Let’s see. What’s new in the land of Writer Zen Garden? WE HAVE A NEW MEETUP GROUP! I’m so excited. We are the Writer Zen Garden and joining up is free. If you join, you will be prompted to set up a Meetup account, if you don’t already have on; you will then be kept apprised by email of events and goings-on in person. If you’re interested, please check it out:
We are running two workshops at the moment. The first is Walking In This World, using Julia Cameron’s book by the same title. The second in her bestselling Artist’s Way trilogy, Walking focuses on expanding our creativity and learning tools that help us stay on the page. It runs every other Sunday and we had our first meeting yesterday, October 13th, at Pumping Station: One.
Secondly, we will have a Prompts Circle. Our first meeting is this Saturday, October 19th, also at Pumping Station: One. If you want some new ideas to play with in your writing, or just need to get back onto the page, join us!
Finally, National Novel Writing Month is coming! Every year in November, thousands of writers around the globe participate in the madness that is NaNo. If you haven’t heard of it yet, or if you haven’t signed up for this year’s madness, visit their website.
That’s all the news for now. We are hard at work on Submission Guidelines for the blog and some more announcements throughout the rest of the year, leading up to our big announcement in January. Be sure to stay tuned!
