In this episode of Write Enjoy Repeat, Anna remembers how her writing emerged from her love of reading. As a teenager, she wrote a diary and then began to write more in her 20s and 30s, attending workshops and courses. She’s written memor, short stories and is half way through writing a novel.
Anna loves to free write (unedited, stream of consciousness type writing) and does it regularly with a group. She also really enjoys the process of editing her writing. Writing helps Anna to feel anchored and connected and like she really exists. Anna recommends giving writing a go because you might be surprised by what comes out, and it can help you to feel centred.
Amongst Anna’s favourite authors is George Elliott, her favourite book being Middlemarch.
The prompt for this episode is ‘[Writing] makes me feel like I really exist…’ Just write down those words and keep writing for five minutes or more and see what comes out.
