"GAG YOUR GREMLINS" - Sat July 7 Grind Writers

Sat. July 7, 2012
Gag Your Gremlins
A lighthearted, fun & effective mini-shop with Wendy Lotosky who is a life/work coach by day. Wendy’s going to help Grind Writers address Fear in writing (some of you may have met Fear in its other guise, Procrastination) – and how fear affects your ability to get those words down on that big blank page.
Gremlins are the keepers if our 'shoulds.' You know you’re in Gremlin territory when you are dealing with your fears, shoulds, rules, regrets, masks, self-doubts.  You’ll identify your Gremlin, give her/him a name (Annoying Andy... Restless Rita....).  Then you’ll identify its character traits, snippy remarks, and annoying behaviours – and you’ll take home a sketch of what they might look like.  

(Wendy even has finger puppets and drawings to get writers going.) And next time your Gremlin or the committee shows up - you can send them for a drink....and get back to your writing.

If you haven't attended Grind Writers before, please email before you attend the first time: 
Still looking for people to facilitate on these dates.
Mainly a matter of getting there a bit early and saving
the table – and sharing an exercise or two you’ve
learned at a workshop or writing course.
