I recently held the first of what I hope to be an ongoing series of one-day writing workshops.

This was the view from our pavilion at the first Wild Writers retreat and workshop. It was a super day of writing and creativity.

You can find a brief review of the day at the Florida Wild Writers website. I hope you’ll click that link and check it out, because the post there highlights a problem I have with my writing and creative life sometimes: procrastination of key elements, and anxiousness over just getting started. Much like my experience leading the workshop, I’m usually good with my writing flow once I get over the initial anxiousness and get started.

The key take away that you can translate into your writing life? Have something in place that forces you to get started. A friend. Accountability partner. Class. Workshop. Retreat. Bomb ticking in the corner that can only be disarmed by you writing actual words.

Well, be careful with the last one.

But you get the picture: Find something that motivates you out of the anxiety stage and into writing words. You’ll build momentum and flow from there.

At the end of that article, there is an announcement that the SECOND Wild Writers workshop will be held on April 30.

The details of that will be announced soon. There will be three pricing tiers: returning participant, early-bird, and standard. And the number of seats sold will be limited. If you are interested, I will make an announcement here, but the email list for Wild Writers will have first dibs. Sign up on the Wild Writers page and keep your eyes open for the official announcement.

Also, I’m planning to post another, more in-depth blog post later in the week. It’s one I’ve been working on a while, and I hope you’ll find it helpful for your writing life.

Until then, have a great week, and Happy Writing!
