Rebecca Rass creative writing workshops offer tools
to reach inward and discover the stories within.
Since writing is an activity of the soul, a journey inward,
means plunging into our memories and into our imagination;
to look for meanings in our experiences of triumph and failure,
to discern the narrative and the poetic in every day life,
and thus to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary.
From “The Writer Within”:
In order to write we need freedom,
freedom from the demons of Fear of Writing;
freedom from Fear of failure;
from criticism and especially from self-criticism.
So we begin by writing everything that comes to our mind
without any order, theme, or even logic.
We accept words as they come, at random.
We surrender to our intuition, allowing the voice inside
to tell its story, its way.
