Last night we held our very first free-writing event where we offered a distraction free environment for members and guests alike to get some writing done. This was aided by complimentary cupcakes which were kindly provided by our Vice-chair Kathy, and tea and coffee.
We had a fantastic turn-out, and even had 3 guests join us.
The goal was to bring work in – whether it was a short story, a novel, or some editing – and make use of the time to get work done. We understand it can be difficult to find time to write. Even at home, it can be all too easy to be distracted by other things that need doing – laundry that needs doing, dishes sitting by the sink, windows that need washing.
Everyone who attended was productive, managing to get work done. Whether it was editing a few more chapters, figuring out the plot, or writing from one of our prompts. Given the success, we’ll definitely look into doing it more often. Watch this space.
