In these challenging days, we all find ourselves at home. And since there is not much else to do, why don't we just write? Let us connect with each other at our desks for some structured work hours and enjoy the focus and company of each other. Together we can create an effective writing process, and be together in isolation. I will guide you through daily focus-sessions. You will will use some tools to make your writing process more effective, and together we establish routines, that help you to stay on track in these challenging times.

We work in the joint home-office via zoom. You work on your current text project. Your text can be at any stage.  

The daily guided writing process lasts three highly structured and effective hours (10 am – 1 pm). Ideally you have already started the day with moving your body when we meet. Try to go outside for a run or even just a little 20 minute walk, before your settle down for work. That sets you up for good flow!

There is a small evening activity (15min) each day for you to plan and reflect your writing experience, also to have an exchange with other participants during this remote writing retreat. The working environment is mindful, goal-oriented, and empowering. Join if you would like to be supported in your work-flow and if you would like to be of support to others! Together we write.

Preparation: 14 April:  Flow board planning exercise at a time of your convenience 15min instructions follow via email
