I have no idea what our focus will be this week: )
If anyone has any ideas please feel free to bring them. If anyone wants to lead this session please feel free to let me know.
(I do have some topic ideas so no worries, we won't be aimless.)
We'll do a meet and greet and then do two short writing exercises.
The first one will be an easy topic which we use to get our writing flowing, spark ideas and have fun.
The second exercise is simply a writing exercise where we either list or describe what we want in life. We can keep it short and simple or lengthy and descriptive. We can be very practical and/or dream big.
After each exercise people can share their writing with the group or not.
After both exercises we can take the opportunity to ask for help on any project or task we have or decide as a group to do some other writing exercise.
I expect the meeting will likely last 1 to 1.5 hours.
The purpose of the group is to be supportive, have fun and work on creating whatever it is we long for in our life (even if we don't know what it is we long for: )
Bring your choice of writing media and maybe an idea for writing exercise for the group.
Black Spring coffee house is lovely cafe near downtown Oakland.
It has a lot of space for a group and plenty of on street parking.
