Writing Changes You…

 Writing Changes You…

Your voice is unique.  No one has your imagination or your creativity.  Writing is a way of sharing with others … your visions and dreams … and opening doorways for them to explore new possibilities…to know themselves in new ways.  And this happens through the grace of you giving of yourself.   You can learn to reach into your creativity … triggering your imagination to paint with words, to touch people, to move people, to inspire people.

Through writing, you are discovering who you are, as you allow the words and images, the feelings and thoughts, to flow from unfamiliar places… on to the page.  You can surprise yourself. What you have to say matters more than you expect.  You have value, more than you know.

Your imagination can bring those little black symbols on the page … alive … by moving you to tears of joy, or terrifying you, or uplifting you and inspiring you… making you gasp, or laugh out loud.

Writing can be a transcendent experience, when you write for yourself … when you let your familiar expectations go.   You can be moved and even changed, by your own feelings and imagination … arriving at new and often surprising, perspectives, regardless of whether you publish or sell your work.

Your imagination is one of your greatest gifts.  It can help you create meaning, with the power of words. Open to your imagination and to the mystery of who you are.  Let your innocence open you to new possibilities within a new moment.  From here, let yourself wonder, without having to know where you are going.  Then create something, as if out of the blue.  Imagination. It’s fun. It can make your heart sing.

If you want what you write to reflect your most creative and imaginative self … if you want to participate in a world of giving and receiving … if you want to lift beyond who you know yourself to be … contact me at 828-683-9331 or alixjamieson@gmail.com.  I am available for editing, as well as private sessions for individuals and small groups.

I have thirty years experience in teaching creative writing for television and film scriptwriting, at the University level in California … as well as in editing books, poetry, short stories, fiction for children, and autobiographies.

 

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
