WATH Write Ins 2015

November is all about getting the words written!

Participants are encouraged to come along to write ins at the participating libraries through the entire month. Statistics indicate that the write ins lead to fantastic success. Putting dedicated time aside as often as possible to focus soley on adding new words (and doing so with the motivation and support of a similarly minded community of fellow writers) helps you stay on target and move sure-heartedly toward your goal.

Come along to as many write ins as you can manage, meet other writers, share the trials and tribulations, but most importantly, give these hours to your writing and get new words on your current work-in-progress. Bring along your laptop, tablet, or pen and paper because these sessions involve a lot more writing than talking.

*** If you find you’re challenged by being in a public location with external noises and conversations, consider coming along with headphones. We do not feel rejected when writers create this kind of sound barrier to focus on their work. (In fact you’ll find at every Write In our municipal liaison, Rebecca Laffar-Smith, will hook herself into her computer in this way too when she’s in ‘high-focus’ mode.) Please, don’t let your concern that you’ll struggle to produce this way hold you back from giving it a try. Most writers discover in time that they really don’t need “perfect” conditions because when the energy, fire, and drive is right the words are there. Write Ins are pretty magical in creating that energy, fire, and drive. Give it a go!

*** If you have any other concerns about being able to get the writing done at our Write Ins, please send Rebecca an email rebecca@writealongthehighway.org. She’d love to help ease your worries or talk about strategies to overcome Resistance.
