Write with wVw online.
How is everyone adjusting to this time of sheltering in place? #AloneTogether?
I first experienced resistance: this can't be happening and if it is I hate all these limitations. Next resignation, brought on largely by my children who insisted I was not taking the situation seriously. Then came adjustment: how do I re-create the things in my life that give me joy?
wVw is going online. I noticed meetings, classes, church services, and even birthday parties were going online. Would it be possible for wVw workshops to succeed online. This week a number of writers joined me to test the possibility. It worked! We wrote, read and responded to one another as if we were gathered in my living room. The creative magic of writing in the moment to a prompt was present. Not the same intimacy of writing in the same space, but we wrote and read inspiring stories, poems, and essays. We were not alone at all. We wrote in community. #wVwTogether.
