Time to Meet! #SOL22

Four years ago, I took a risk. A writing risk. I’d been blogging and sharing for just a year or two with the Two Writing Teachers “Slice of Life” and Poetry Friday communities for fun, but I felt ready to up my writing game with a class or coaching of some sort. I’m not even sure how I found it, but I signed up for the “Time to Write Workshop” in the then-new Teach Write community of writers.

Each week we gather together on ZOOM (we were pros before the pandemic hit!) to set goals and intentions for our time together, write alongside each other for close to an hour, and then celebrate and set our writing goals for the upcoming week. Many of us have been writing together for several years now. While members come and go, we’ve become a close-knit community. A family.

And now, It’s time to meet! This afternoon, in nearby Concord, MA, six members of our TTW family will be getting together for the afternoon to spend time together. In-person! No computer screens! While I am local, several will have found their way here from further afield — Cambodia, Canada, and New Jersey! We have rough plans, but who knows what will happen. Maybe we’ll even write together in-person.

Stay tuned!

Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. And many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March.

    1. Thank you! When we met in person, we talked about how sadly none of us have work colleagues who write, or see themselves as writers. It makes our time together on ZOOM and in communities like this even more precious.

  1. Christie, I think it is wonderful that you will have a face-to-face meet-up. I remember how wonderful it felt when the Wonderopolis Ambassadors got to meet everyone for the first time. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to see you several times after the first meet-up. I look forward to hearing about the event.
