It's taken a week to be able to write about the first session of the Write Around Portland group I'm facilitating. I was right: this group will change me.
The first meeting was more challenging than I had imagined it would be. I've never facilitated a group with so many folks managing so many things pulling on them, tugging from the outside and the inside. Unfortunately, one writer couldn't manage the strain of those forces, and I didn't know how to help him. The group unraveled.
But they wrote a lot.
This week the sun is out, and I have support coming to the group, and I have more plans, a better idea of who and when and where and how much. It's such a privilege to be able to walk in.
