Each week there is an open invitation. It is open in the sense that it is for everyone. It is also open in the sense that you can give it a whirl…or not. Your choice.
The magic of this community comes from sharing our stories. Any story…or poem…or letter…or anything else you want to share.
Natalie Goldberg claims writing is an athletic activity. She says:
Just like any other sport, it takes practice. Behind the football we see on TV, the players have put in hundreds of hours before the big game. The muscles of writing are not so visible, but they are just as powerful: determination, attention, curiosity, a passionate heart.Old Friend from Far Away

Open your blog and write a post. It doesn’t have to be a heart stretched story…it just needs to be written…and shared.
