open invitation no. 42: writing space

Take space for writing.

Where do you take space for writing?

It can be literal…where do you write? At the kitchen table? On your couch? Out back when the sun is rising in the sky?

It can be figurative. What kind of mind space do you create so you can write? Deep breaths? Angry outbursts? Joy?

It can be topical. What kinds of topics take space in your writing? For me it tends to be: faith, adoption, writing, teaching.

If it’s been awhile since you’ve written, take some space to make it happen. We miss you…and your stories.

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

    1. Our writing spaces are sacred, and the way you pull us into your piece through a connection with a student’s question is excellent. I love your image of your pens becoming cat toys. I write on the couch (or comfy chair on my screened porch when the weather warrants) near my kitchen, because of the coffee! 🙂
