Today my writing workshop was hybrid — one Californian connected by Zoom and was projected through the big living room TV and four of us participated IN PERSON! What an incredible treat.
The day was bright and slightly cool, the maples hazing the horizon with green. In other words, spring added to the cheer.
We only wrote to one prompt* because it was just too nice to chat and catch up afterwards (we usually write to two). Finn mostly behaved.
A few of us had lasagne and salad after. It felt so normal and also so extraordinary.
Because of the tech prep and cleaning the place up, I’m exhausted — but exhausted in a clean house and with a full heart.
* prompt produced some amazing writing and came from Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones Deck. It was : “What are you waiting for?” Write for ten minutes. We wrote for longer.
