Helping others help themselves

Several years ago, I followed the example Jane Espenson sets on Twitter. She inspires writing sprints and times the hour for those who want to participate. I decided to bring this to my friends on Facebook, but when I posted, asking them to join me for an hour dedicated to writing, a friend asked if it had to be writing. Of course it didn’t and so The Creative Hour was born. Now every Wednesday from 8:00 pm until 9:00 pm I time, on Facebook and Twitter, the dedication to our creative passion. During this hour we turn everything off. That means no TV, no Radio, and quiet time just for you, the participant.

This week, something amazing happened. On Wednesdays, I attend a Chamber of Commerce meeting. This is a group that usually has close to 100 members who participate. I always invite my friends to join me that evening for The Creative Hour. I knew a couple joined me, but this past week, I found out several others do as well. Even more thrilling, they said it has made a difference in building their creative passion. Among the passions are music, quilting, painting and writing. It is truly a thrill to realize you do make a difference for others. I thank them for sharing this with me. Wow!

I invite you to join this amazing group each Wednesday evening.

Thank you,
