Snippets for writing

November 3, 10, 17, 24: The Eastside Writing Room has been “planting virtual writing seeds” since April and November calls for “harvesting” some of those writing ideas.

Our purpose remains the same. To claim writing time with no interruptions, no cell phones, no chores. The pandemic has shifted our locations but has not impacted our commitment. Write from your desk, office, outside, in the park. Just not around our community table.

If you are interested in joining us, contact Ethel.  We check in on Zoom at 11:00 AM (Mountain time) to state writing intentions. We keep our intentions concise and brief and then off we go to write. This is not a content share/critique group. I send out a Zoom invite to our full member list each Sunday. We write every Tuesday.

Words are powerful- the words we write, think, and speak can hold influence, whether it’s with a group, on your social media pages, with your neighbor as you talk from a social distance, or in your home with your family.

Ethel Lee-Miller blogs regularly about people, the power of words, and the writing life. She’s retired from professional writing gigs after 30 years of teaching, coaching, editing, and gathering writers to publicly share their work. She is the author of Thinking of Miller Place, and Seedlings, Stories of Relationships. In retirement she writes to inspire, to connect with folks, and for the pure enjoyment of it. She’s sharing stories at Odyssey Storytelling, Zoom gatherings, and anywhere there’s a Zoom mic.
