SacredWriting

Dorothy Allison is right, of course.

This is why you write, yes?

Me too.

Me too. (All of the above.)

1) You write, first and foremost, for yourself.

2) You really want to write for others.

And yet…
You struggle.

Me too.

SacredWriting

SacredWriting is:

  • Knowing, with surety and certainty, that your writing (even the most private and personal stuff) can be heard, held, and honored.
  • A place in which you can allow it to be read — knowing it is safe, confidential, and profoundly respected, that you are.
  • Feedback — not on your technique or syntax or grammar (necessarily), but on what is actually said — and not said, what is on the lines and between them.
  • Your inner dialogue, yes, but heard vs. just the ever-spinning hamster wheel within your own brain.
  • Telling your stories — especially the ones that have you questioning, doubting, hurting, afraid — and feeling completely understood.
  • And then (if all this weren’t enough) hearing from your reader (me) in a way that will invite you to explore even more, write even more, go even deeper — in your writing, yes; in your very life.

This is what I do. This is what I offer. This is what I invite.

Your writing deserves this. Your story deserves this. You deserve this.

Let’s do this…
