I've scheduled the Zoom for:
Saturday, March 20, 2021
2:00 p.m. Central Time
An email has been sent out to the 13 people who have said, "I'm in!", so if you have let me know you want to join us but you don't receive that email, please, let me know. I don't want anyone who wants to be there to miss out because I made a mistake -- which has been known to happen a time or two. Or three. Or ad infinitum.
If you haven't told me you want to be part of this session, you still have plenty of time. You can even wait until that morning if you want. Either post a comment here or email me and I'll get an invitation out to you. We would love to have you.
Speaking of loving to have someone, Kelly is a new member of our community, and if you haven't read her comment introducing herself, you're going to want to do that. She is Insanely Interesting! Please make her welcome. She's joining us for the Zoom session, too, so you'll have a chance to get to know her a little better then.
As I'm thinking about this 90-minite-ish meeting, I'm pondering what topic or topics might be the most beneficial for us to explore. I've listed some suggestions below which relate to our recent Going Out With Lanterns series. Tell us what you think.
* How does having an image of your exploring self help you in your writing? What are some specific ways it can feed your work?
* What can we do when that just isn't working? When we're just plain stuck?
* How does this apply to getting published? Does anyone out there in a traditional pub house care whether we're writing from our essential selves? Is it possible to procure an agent or a publishing contract if we're not writing what's on trend?
If you have any additional ideas, please don't hesitate to let me know, either via email or in a comment. This is about YOU, and I need to know what's crying out from your souls. In addition to simply connecting and savoring each other, I long for you to come away from the session with something that will carry you forward in this sacred work you do.
I'll post tomorrow on our next step in Being Out With Lanterns, but let me just say now that your responses have been nothing short of magical. Even Pammy's Little Engine That Could!
