This is your place to love your work again

Hi guys,

My New Year's resolution this year? to have none.

"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost"
- JRR Tolkien

How are you feeling about 2023?

That expectation to have a list of New Years resolutions, start your gym membership and feel euphoric from the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve can feel a bit unrealistic.

How about a new approach to the New Year?

An invitaiton to pause and reflect.

Give ourselves the gift of space.

I find myself reconnecting with this energy whenever I write.

It can be even more magical when we write with others.

Solo or in company, creative writing provides an opportunity to step back from the hurly burly and write for ourselves.

A few words. Half a page. A letter.

Allowing ourselves this space helps connect with ideas that may otherwise get overlooked.

How about sitting down with a pen and paper for 2 minutes and just writing?

See what arises as your pen moves.

Let me know how you get on.
