I know things are crazy right now. Even if you don’t live in the States, you’ve probably heard – we had an election yesterday. It’s kind of big deal.
But I’m not going to talk about politics. I voted. I did my part. Hopefully you did too. And from here on out the wheels of democracy will turn without out help.
I implore you: turn off the news, stop watching the coverage, and schedule a meeting with your writing instead. Let the great world spin on around you and make time for your creative work.
Making Time to Write
A few months ago, I started hosting a weekly online group wherein we meditate for a few minutes to quiet our minds, and then write. I got some great feedback. We all agreed it was good for us personally as well as creatively. The only downside seemed to be that the time I chose didn’t work for a lot of people.
So I joined forces with another mindful writer friend (who happened to be hosting her own mindful writers group) to expand our calendar.
We built ourselves a new website and set up scheduling software that automatically sends reminders. We’re calling it A Very Important Meeting and we’re offering 13 sessions a week (with aspirations to add a lot more in the coming months).
A Very Important Meeting
I love writing with these groups. And the craziest thing is that they’re no less compelling for being online. That was a surprise to me. And being online has allowed us to welcome writers from San Diego to New York, Australia to the Netherlands. It’s very cool.

Let the politicians ramble on with their vitriol. We’ll be writing.
