On The Write Trek (Virtual)

Six Week Immersive Writing Group

Break Writer’s Block

Get Your Pen’s Mojo Back In Just 6 Weeks!

We’re going to get On The Write Trek, together! Virtually. You, in your little corner of the world and me in mine here in the magical land of the pyramids — hooked up by that modern marvel called Zoom (the new school version of Skype.  “New & improved!”). It’s a way to connect our muses together for an hour and a half each week, diving deep and writing together.

On The Write Trek sessions consist of a series of timed writings, a process that we use to tell our stories with and to uncover the themes we want to write about.

With writing prompts in varying spans of minutes, we will write as fast as we can, our pens never leaving the page. By writing so quickly we are able to push past our inner critic and ego, and through all the ways that keep us trapped in self-editing.

This pushes us into a less self conscious, a looser groove, where, if we’re lucky, we will cruise into the fertile imagination that lingers within each of us, bringing out our stories that have been waiting to be brought to life.

After we write, we each read our work aloud. We don’t critique, we just listen and give loving support. We do this at a minimum of three times within each session. This technique, while very therapeutic, is also a wonderful way to jumpstart any good writing project because it helps you get to the chewy nougat of what your muse is dying to say.

Don’t stress it either.  I keep groups purposefully small, with no more than 6 peeps, so as to create a foundation for experiencing SAFETY, COMFORT AND INTIMACY in the process.

Lose Your Critic

Create a relationship to the written word, BANISHING YOUR INNER CRITIC and instead leveraging your higher self.

Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

But I Am A Seasoned Writer?

Mixed content in a writing group creates a fertile, playful environment for all participants. For seasoned writers, it goes further by EXPANDING YOUR TOOLBOX for greater writing.

For example, if you predominantly write memoir, you may GROW MORE WILLING TO EXPERIMENT with dialogue, fiction, and personal process when you hear others enjoy forays into character, dialogue or the interior realms, and vice versa.

On The Write Trek sessions invite and encourage writing in its various forms. Exercises are given that DEVELOP NARRATIVE SKILLS— using dialogue, point of view, memoir, fantasy and so on.

“Keep a small can of WD-40 on your desk—away from any open flames—to remind yourself that if you don’t write daily, you will get rusty.” ~ George Singleton

What Is An Immersive Writing Group?

We participate together, writing on provided prompts for 1.5 hour sessions LIVE ONLINE while keeping the pen moving, for a designated period of time. Then, without editing, we read to one another. Writing, listening, being heard… these facets create a powerful alchemy that in turn support both the creative process and personal growth.

Writing practice moves us through the whole gamut: hilarity, emptiness, boredom, delight, fear, mud … increasing access to the depths of our imagination. Through ‘writing immersion’ we uncover the power of plunging into uncensored inner voices, away from the restrictive demands of the human ego.

Using the pen to mine our experiences, thoughts and feelings, we encounter new ways to look closely at them, and to support their vital expression. The process carries us into a raw, unperfected, ground, where the unexpected surprises and awakens us to our inner voices that needs to be heard.

If you have stepped away from your writing, and you’ve been hearing the call of the Muse again, then this is your sign.  It’s Time.

Let’s together dance with the Muse! 

‘On The Write Trek’ is one of the best ways I have ever found to be the first kind of person. As a practice it keeps me writing and as a writer it helps me to focus on what I really want to write.”  Sharon S, author, teacher

On The Write Trek has made a huge difference in my writing confidence and ability. Kimberly creates such a safe and productive environment all geared to simply get you to write and not defend or worry about the result! Fantastic!”  Sunita R, artist, personal trainer

Kimberly creates a warm, secure and open atmosphere in which the creative writing process can take place without judgment. Hearing the writing of the other group members and getting to know them through their writing, have been unexpected benefits. ”  David S, real estate broker, writer

FAQs

What is the criteria for joining an On The Write Trek group?

For acceptance into a group, members should have a genuine desire to write, a willingness to stretch, a thoughtful respect for the group, and to be ready to have some fun!  Whether a complete amateur, just wanting to do something fun, or a seasoned pro, immersive writing offers something for everyone!

How do I join?

Simply choose your selected group day/time and complete your registration.  That’s it!  Just get ready for some fun and insightful exploration together!

I'm a bit shy or nervous about reading in front of a group. Are there other options for this?

Please be rest assured that we respect confidentiality within the group and that only positive responses are offered. Our uncensored stream-of-consciousness writing done in On The Write Trek sessions deserves to be met with kindness and encouragement. Editing comments and critiques are for a different stage in the process that is not done in these sessions. It is important that each person reads their writing aloud as this helps displace the harsh inner critic that holds our best works back. And you’re not alone; everyone, including myself, will be participating fully, writing and reading with the group.
