Are You Longing for Community? Me Too!

Hey, girlfriends would you like to join me for some writerly fun? Our mutual long season of “time out” has reminded many of us of the immense joy in and necessity of community. So I thought, let’s get together on Facebook and talk about pals, paper, and potstickers. Huh? Potstickers? (keep reading).

I’ve decided to form a community of creatives. And no, you don’t have to be a published writer to join in. You don’t even have to want to write. Really. Yes, this is an introduction to writerly ways, but it’s applicable to communicating in your preferred form of creative expressions, whether with a pen, plants, paints, piano, poetry, photography, pansies, popcorn stitchery, or your tasty version of potstickers.

I’ve found that principles have diversity and inclusiveness woven into their fabric, which is what we want. Strong threads of meaning to strengthen our character and to remind us that our unique contributions matter. And while I won’t be sharing what to do if you play the piano off-key, I will be sharing keys to more exciting verbiage. I won’t critique if you drop a note singing, but I will share notes on how to drop extra words to make your sentences sing.

I thought I’d throw some challenges your way to see what we can discover about ourselves that will help us laugh and grow. Two of my favorite activities!

This community will be a Facebook Group and will include succinctly written challenges that you can post in the group, or you can choose not to show a soul. I won’t make house calls at midnight to thumb through your work with a red pen. Promise. This is written exploration without intimidation.

Along with the writing challenges you could benefit from:

  • Video interviews with some of my expressive friends
  • Interesting articles hand-picked for life enrichment
  • Discussions about great authors and artisans
  • Motivational materials
  • A time and place to post your blog locations
  • And so much more!

If this rings your bell, join us. The doors are always open, at least for a season. You can come alone and make new friends, or arrange to meet up with your old friends, for wildly inventive sessions. It costs nothing to join, so hop on over to Facebook, request to join, and introduce yourself!

With love, Patsy

    Sounds like fun but I don’t think I will join now. Thank you for the opportunity. You have created a very interesting book club with so many side trails. A look at your room shows them. 🙏 💕🎶
