Putting Our Heads Together Again

Last week, I posted about a project I’d started to stir up some conversations about writing in an online writer’s group I’m a part of (Putting Our Heads Together)

This week, I’d like to give you an update about that.

It’s been about two weeks now of posting a daily question about writing and its related 54f6a620-f2d8-4bdc-ad37-a97aa1a18800activities. My questions are pretty open- ones where there’s the potential for lots of different “right” answers so that we can get some insight into each others’ writing processes and possibly learn some new tricks ourselves. Most of all, I want to get folks talking about writing because that’s one thing that feeds the Muse and builds a stronger community.

and we’ve got about 5% of the members commenting at this point. That seems pretty good to me after only two weeks-I’m pretty happy with it.

But it got me  thinking about the other 95%. Some people join groups and never follow up on them. Some people don’t post. and some people don’t comment on the posts of others- but I worry about the possibility that there are writers here who underestimate themselves- who think that they don’t have anything to offer

And so, I wrote a note…

“Hi folks

want to talk for a moment about the question for the day that I’ve been doing (with help  last weekend )

any hoo I wanted to note that we’ve been at this for about 2 weeks now and I’m noticing a bunch of you commenting- about 5% of the group, and that’s really great. Thank you

but I’d like to talk to the other 95% of you now…

You’re all writers too, right? I’d think that’s why you’re here. And that means you have your own unique delightful take on writing. Your own experiences. Your own writing tricks. Your own beliefs about writing and challenges and ways of triumphing over those challenges

and I’d love to hear from you too

Maybe your idea is just the thing another writer needs to overcome their own challenge. Maybe your concept will light a spark in another writer that will grow into something totally different but equally wonderful. Maybe you have the missing piece..

or maybe we’d just enjoy getting to know your writer-y self better. Writers gotta hang together

No pressure, but I’d love to see your response to the question of the day.

Please, be welcome….”

If there are folks who aren’t joining in because they think they have nothing worthy to add, I’m hoping this may open a door for them

See you again next week
