“…publication is not all it is cracked up to be. but writing is. Writing has so much to give, so much to teach, so many surprises.” -Anne Lamott, bird by bird
Whether you realize it or not, you’re a writer.
What you may not be aware of is the jaw-dropping places Writing can take you…
Wanna find out?
You’ve heard it. That thump, thump, thumping in the back of your mind. (Or maybe it was your heart.)
The rattling and straining of that locked pirate’s chest inside you Begging, pleading, demanding to be opened. What’s inside?
(Hint: It’s not a boggart, Though plenty may be blocking your path, Masquerading as lack, unworthiness, or self-doubt.)
It’s time to fling open that box! To discover the diamonds under your rough! To claim your inner Goonie and go after that treasure!
What does this have to do with writing? Oh, only everything. You need a key to unlock that box, right? Well I got your key right here And it’s shaped like a pen.
Join me and your new BFFs for Every Other Sunday.
It’s part writers’ workshop, part mastermind group, part soulcraft.
But before I tell you why it’s worth your valuable time (and cash) Let’s discuss why you might not want to carpe this particular diem…
“I’m not a writer.”
Can you hold a pen/punch a key/dictate? Newsflash: No matter what your 8th-grade English teacher told you, you’re a writer. This ain’t rare air; writing is truly for everyone. And if you tell yourself you’re not a writer, You’re cutting yourself off from an incredible source of Power, self-knowing, and support.
“I don’t have time.”
We make time for what’s important. I’m a mom of two incredibly wild children—I get it. Making time often is not easy. But if you want something enough, it’s there.
“I don’t have money.”
I believe it was the Dalai Lama (or was it Dr. Strange?) who said, “Meditate for 5 minutes every day. If you don’t have that much time, make it an hour.” Boy, howdy, are we gonna talk about money in this group, Including uncovering and addressing some of your most hidden and cherished blocks around it.
“I’m just not interested.”
Okay, cool. You’ve done all your work. You’re as big as you can get. Everything’s great. And your life’s already full of amazing people And you don’t need any more love and support. No prob.
“More Kelly is not something I want/need in my life.”
Seriously? Who are you? I’m kidding. I kid. This (and I) might not be your particular sip of scotch (Or Shirley Temple). And if so, that’s fine and dandy.
If you want to fall so in love with yourself And your amazing heretofore uncovered you-ness That you start to swagger like Mick Jagger;
If you want to make friends with some awesome Folks who like you are ready to Do some epic, next-level s***;
And if you want to unleash your inner Lamott, Goldberg, Lorde, Angelou, Waters, Coates, or Gladwell In the process…
Then this, my friend, Is a train you do not Want to miss.
Here’s the deal:
We meet Every Other Sunday, 12-2pm EST February 3-April 14.
That’s 6 sessions. And to ensure you get the max out of each, I’m limiting the group to 8 people.
Each week you’ll get a writing exercise (it won’t take a ton of your time—don’t worry) Plus we will do some impromptu imagination work during “class.”
We’re gonna meet on Zoom (so yeah, you can be pantsless, but please don’t tell us) And I’m going to record the calls and give you access.
