notes on writing

Notes scribbled from last week's excellent presentation by author/UNCC Professor Karon Luddy which was sponsored by the Writing Your Faith Group at Christ Episcopal Church. What a treat to gather in a room full of people who love to write and wax philosophical on our favorite subject. Thought-provoking prompts and Mint Milano cookies were included.

1. All writing is a spiritual act, an act of faith.
2. It's not a journal, it's a writer's book.
3. Writing is a practice to keep your heart open.
4. Silence is a writer's friend (or she must befriend it).
5. You can hear so much in the silence.
6. State the 3 most important words in your life.
(hers are writing + love + people)
7. Dreams are a great source to write poems from.
8. Write with your 5 senses plus these other senses:
common sense
sense of humor
sense of something greater than self
