“Ink Flow and Focus” with Bronwyn Emery on October 15th, 2023
The Secret to Productive Writing Sessions
Writing in the company of other writers can have unexpected and extraordinary results, including the banishment of procrastination, the silencing of the inner editor, and the elimination of that hesitancy that hits when it’s time to work on a challenging passage. The prevailing belief is that it takes isolation and insulation to produce great work and high word counts, but Bronwyn Emery has discovered that writers who share writing space surprise themselves with how effective drafting off the energy of other writers can be. Time after time, they find focus and flow faster, maintain it longer, and return to it more easily than when they’re alone. Goals set within earshot of other writers tend to fly by, achieved and surpassed with comforting regularity. Can it really be this easy?
