Ralph Waldo Emerson Was a Silent Writer

Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

It’s often hard, sometimes it feels impossible, to pull away from the noisy chaos of daily life to make time for the creative life.

The Silent Writers Collective was created in response to that challenge and we meet online every Tuesday at 9 pm EST for an online writing retreat.  The retreat is open to all writers, especially those who find it hard to put aside distractions and find the time to write.

You can work on your own project or the writing prompts below will help you get started if you don’t have a project to work on.

  1. From PW.org: Fiction and Poetry prompts
  2. From Verbal VerbosityThe 100 Words Challenge Prompt
  3. From me: A photo prompt, “Joyful Moment”
  4. From Mama’s Losin’ ItFive Writing Prompts
  5. From @Selorian on Twitter: #storystarters
  6. From Plinky: Quickie questions to ponder

The Silent Writers online writing retreat welcomes any writer who wants to commit a minimum of one hour to writing.  If you’re interested in participating, join us tonight at 9 EST on Twitter or Facebook.
