“Writing is one of the most solitary activities in the world”
Of all the quotes about writing I find this one, from Paulo Coelho, heartbreakingly sad. Outstanding as he is, on this point, a Write-In will prove even this alchemist wrong.
Do you labor in solitude with your writing work?
That’s want I did when I started my memoir, and it got me down, until I figured out I don’t have to do it on my own. A Write-In is perfect for me. In person is best. I learned this when I roped in a writing friend to share some of her writing time with me.
The fruits from our first 50 minute session where so juicy we decided to do it again, and again, now we can’t stop. In fact we’re so flipping excited about it we want to share it with more writers. Would you like to join us?

I get more written in a 50 minute Write-In than I do in 2 hours of solitude. Some days my writing flows, other days feels like procrastination station. The train is just not moving forward at the smooth pace I long for. That’s when I crave a good Write-In.
Be the energy you want to attract
There’s something about sharing creative energy that supercharge my writing. Just knowing I’m not on my lonesome. Even when the other writers are miles away, in a different country, brings me comfort, and my writing feels more meaningful, – safer in a way.
Beauty in Collaboration
That’s why I’m starting a Virtual Write-In too. I’m doing this purely for my own selfish reasons but I need writers to join me for it to work. Fancy giving it a try? I can’t promise it will blow your mind but I record it will definitely rock your writing socks and get your creative projects moving. Hit this link and pop your details in and you’ll be taken to the page with all the juicy details of how it works. This is a safe space – free from criticism, and of course – it’s absolutely Free!
Whatever your writing goals and desires. From poetry, journaling and journalism, to blogging and book writing, you don’t have to do it alone. A Write-In is where writes of all levels share creative energy and write together. It keeps us accountable and the Muse loves it too.
If procrastination is the Thief of Time – a Write-In is the Giver of Time.
