Creative Writing Challenge – February 2018


Each month we are experimenting with different forms of being creative. And this time we were inspired by Julia Cameron’s The Artist Way.

First thing in the morning over 5 days we took 15 minutes to free write.

Then we shared a word or phrase that resonated with us in the group – by taking a picture of our notes. It was a fascinating insight into the psyche of SYSWC members around the world. And a simple way to merge technology with creativity.

9 SYSWC members took part, representing 6 global locations (UK, France, Italy, Australia, Japan & Canada) and all sharing at least onceover the period. Day 2 was the most popular day when everyone shared in the group with confidence! Take a closer look and leave your comments on the Padlet here.

After the challenge, some of us enjoyed a live chat – a moment to get to know each other (not easy when we are in different time zones!), discuss our experience and the positive impact it had on our writing. Even though some found it difficult, everyone was pleasantly surprised to discover the deep thoughts put down on paper. We agreed that it was good to have a routine and it got easier as it went on.

Finally, we spoke about the fun creative challenges that are coming up next…intrigued? Well, why not join us here.

Thank you SYSWC participants!
