August 16, 2017. This week we brought back a new, stripped-down video blog feature, Coffee with Kay. Also this week I completed voice interviews with 20 Journalverse members who gave me candid feedback on, among other things, how Journalverse could be improved.
Several people said how much they’d enjoyed Coffee with Kay and asked if I’d bring it back. That was an easy suggestion to implement, and the next day I recorded a video blog. Another idea that several people shared was to somehow bring members together in a regular community writing process.
And voila! Coffeehouse Community Writes is born! Imagine us all in a vintage coffeehouse, sprawled on sprung couches around wobbly tables, our journals out, classic rock (country, punk, pop, fill in your own blank) pouring out of the stereo speakers mounted on the wall. We’re writing to the same prompt and then somebody calls time and we share.
Write for 7-10 minutes on the prompt below. Then post your write, or whatever you want of it, or a reflection (As I read this I notice– I’m aware of– I’m surprised by — etc.) or notes on the process or experience of writing it.
In keeping with the theme of the video (you can watch it HERE if you haven’t already), here’s your prompt:
Write about something you’ve been avoiding or postponing. Are you ready to Just.Do.It (Nike)? If not, what stops you? If so, what is an action step you can take right now to move it forward?
Please share your write, your reflection or your process in the Comments section. Respond to each other and let’s see if we can create a community journal experience!
