Writing in Community is a book of inspiration and encouragement for writers who want to reach deep within themselves and write to their fullest potential. There is magic in a successful writing group. This book helps writers tap into that magic, and with gentle wisdom and humor, experience unprecedented breakthroughs in creativity.
Becky's writing group has meant a lot to her. She loves the energy and synchronicity of using the generative process in the writing group to take her creativity to new heights. A longtime educator, poet and essayist, Becky draws the inspiration for her writing from the magic and wisdom of being present in the world. The strength and beauty of people continue to amaze her, and their guidance has been her best teacher. Her book, co-authored with Lucy Adkins, Writing in Community: Say Goodbye to Writer's Block and Transform Your Life, won the 2014 Silver Independent Publishers Award in Writing/Publishing.

The best gift we can give ourselves - and others - is to be present. When we allow ourselves to fully open to the sacred inside, we become co-creators with the divine. We are made to be creative, and we have an opportunity as writers to use our one-of-a-kind talents to create our love stories when we pick up our pen. Find your own rhythms and rejoice or shout or laugh. We should be shouting from the mountain tops!
Writing in Community
Ultimately, however, effecting a real change in our relation to time involves attitude; it involves deciding daily to be present and open to what is around us. Even if we have twenty things on our “to do” lists, we can choose what is meaningful and let the rest go. We can slow down and get in the flow of what brings contentment. If we start seeing time as something which is boundless, something which is in our control, we will find in the new rhythms of our lives a creative awakening, a new richness in every moment.
