I am so grateful for the connections I am able to create and sustain virtually — with writers and readers all over the world. And, it’s a very special treat to experience the alchemy that happens when we get to be together in the same place to write and plan and dream and stir the possibility pot.
I’m getting very excited about presenting at Field’s End this Saturday where I’ll be meeting some of you for the first time in person. And, I’d also like to invite you to consider joining me in my favorite place on earth — Cannon Beach, OR — June 15-17 at Summer in Words 2012: Refinement, Resonance & Renewal. Organized by Jessica Morrell and featuring keynote speaker Chelsea Cain, this event offers a powerful weekend of workshops, lectures, panels and individual consults to inspire and inform writers at all levels. I’ll be speaking about “The Productive Writer Archetype” on Friday night and offering a Saturday workshop on “Becoming Fierce in Your Writing Life.”
