These 60-minute journaling workouts are for anyone who wants to journal
Perhaps you find it difficult to journal alone and feel blocked or unsure of how to do it, or what to write about. Maybe you’re a professional writer in search of some inspiration. Or maybe you avidly journal and want to seek out a community of like-minded people.
ALL are welcome, and we’ll use prompts and exercises from the book Heart, Sass & Soul: Journal Your Way to Inspiration and Happiness. You can pick up a copy on Amazon here (this is optional).
The next 60-minute workout is on Monday 20 May at Teatulia tea bar in London’s Covent Garden and costs £10. Tickets must be bought in advance.
Remember to bring a pen and a notebook.
6.30pm – 7pm: Arrival and settling in with cups of tea.
7pm – 7.20pm: After a short welcome, we’ll do a mindset exercise and a writing exercise to get you loosened up and get your writing flowing.
7.20pm – 7.50pm: We’ll 30 minutes of journaling. I’ll provide ideas and prompts, or alternatively you can do freewriting on the things you need and want to write about.
7.50pm – 8pm: Everything you write in your journal is private, but we’ll spend the last 10 minutes sharing our insights from the session.
Writing and journaling are SO powerful but writing in groups has its own special energy. And sometimes you just need to be shoulder-to-shoulder and eye-to-eye with fellow writers and creativity seekers. By journaling in this way, you can write your own stories, share your successes and mine your experiences for the gems they contain.
I look forward to seeing you!
