Writing Creatively With Spirit

A journey of psychic discovery

Creative writing workshop

Leave a comment

I ran a writing workshop today. It was meant to be a blogging workshop, but neither of the two participants was particularly interested in blogging. One of them was interested in writing her autobiography but was struggling with how to organise all the information in her head.

I’ve shared my system for organising books with a couple of creative writing students and thought it might be helpful to share it with her. It was a wonderfully rewarding moment to see her face open up when she realised that she could use what I’d shown her as a way to structure her book.

I then ran a series of exercises using fruit and animal power cards to generate stories and poems. It was interesting that the power animals they choose had a significant meaning for each of them. I could have run a whole session on just these animals, but I wanted to keep things flexible and varied. I felt totally at home doing this, and would love opportunities to do more. Again, another interesting twist on this writing path.
