The Best Writing Often Comes at a Simple Writing Event

June 29th, 2017 · No Comments

by Dwayne Phillips

Some of the best-written pieces were done “on the spur of the moment” at a writing event. That includes week-long events and one-hour events.

The summary above is true in my experience.

I have read pieces written in five-minute exercises, “Okay, everyone write. I will ring the bell in five minutes or so.”

I have read masterpieces written in one-hour exercises, “Okay, everyone write. I will call you back in an hour.”

Why? Okay, here is a brilliant insight. Some persons attend a writing event ready to burst. They have years worth of writing inside them. They settle into the event, and someone says the magic word, “Write.”

That’s about it folks. The magic word carries with it, “(I give you permission to) Write.”

A-h-h-h-h-h. Permission. Safety. Release. It flows. Magic.

The “teacher” at the writing event is actually the “giver of permission,” and nothing more. Want to appear to be a genius? Host a writing event, give permission, and look brilliant.
