The Next Evolution of Bring Back the Words

A long long time ago, I bemoaned my lack of writing, the loss of putting pen to paper (ok, fingers to keyboard) & letting the words spill forth. And then I decided to try and help myself, and maybe some others, by doing a weekly prompt link up. And then life got in the way, and it became not so much a link up, and then not so much weekly, and then just kind of not so much.

And that was the rise and fall of Bring Back the Words.

But, as is typical in the new year, I’m feeling the itch to write again. And after several other people said the same thing, the idea kind of sparked that hey, maybe what we need isn’t prompts, but support. Accountability. Feedback. Help.

And so with just the vaguest of ideas of what that would actually look like, I put it out there that I was starting a writing/blogging/creating support slash accountability slash therapy slash whatever else it takes to get you writing again/more group. And thus the new iteration and life of Bring Back the Words was begun.

I don’t know exactly what the group will morph into. I’m hoping that the members of the group will help build it into whatever they need. For me, I’m looking for accountability about writing more often, somewhere to talk through the mental blocks that keep me from writing, and some ideas about things to write. But that’s just *me*. You might want different things, which is AWESOME. Maybe you want prompts. Maybe you want feedback on what you’ve written. Maybe you just want inspiration that can be found by being around other people who are trying to write.  I think we can make it be whatever we need it to be.

If you–yes, you. I seriously mean ANYONE who is interested– would like to be a part of the group, for whatever it is you’re working on (blog? book? screenplay? work? journal? you name it!), let me know. It’s a secret group on Facebook*, but it’s open to anyone who would like to join, as long as you promise that you’re not going to be a jackass (like any of you would be jackasses). If you’re interested, friend me on FB (https://www.facebook.com/ginger.winters) and then let me know you’d like to join. That’s the easy part. Then we can work on the hard part, the writing.

*Facebook isn’t my favorite, but it was the easiest option here and since it was an idea I kind of implemented before I thought too hard, I went with easy. Even though I took the FB app off my phone, so if you don’t get a quick confirmation of your friend request, it’s because I’m not at my computer.

I would very much like to be a part of that group if you’ll have me. I’m endeavoring to make my blog more personal this year and I love writers groups!
