Encouragement and Inspiration

Dear Pagoda Writers and all creative souls,
You are all invited to our next monthly workshop this coming Saturday from 1 - 3 p.m. featuring Joanne Dietz, artist and world traveler who will share her stories and paintings to inspire us to take every opportunity to write, travel and enjoy unusual places and people around the globe.
Please bring a notebook so you can participate if you wish in this wonderfully creative workshop with conversations and engaging ideas...
If you would like to bring a small plate of something to share or a beverage please feel free to do so...Please don't hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions or know of someone who may be interested in sharing their talents with us as a speaker and or participant or just bring them with you.🤗
Don't forget 🤔we now meet at our home at the address below and RSVP's are very encouraged so we have an idea of how many will be attending.
"Without a mother who reads, I'd never have become a daughter who writes".
My mother, Mary Jane Painter Thompson, WWII Veteran of the OSS, served in North Africa and Italy from '43 to '45 as a cryptographer in charge of 15 personnel under her command...she left a huge treasure of historical journals and photos of major importance in an attic drawer for me to find after she passed away in 2000. As a child and teenager and all through my life I observed her reading and writing each and every day and I am eternally grateful for her influence and modeling of these two essential activities for any writer who wants to improve their craft. I encourage everyone who has young children and grandchildren to spend as much time reading and writing with them as they are influenced by all the avenues of technology that are inundating our society and in their schools.
"It is only by expressing all that is inside that purer and purer streams come". - Brenda Ueland
Hoping to hear from you by this Friday evening with your RSVP's😀☎!
Please bring a brief piece of writing about an adventure you have had in your life to share with us...we start promptly at 1 p.m. so please arrive a few minutes early so there is no disruption in the attention we will be giving to our speaker. Thanks very much.
