SeaGoat Writing Club | Short Stories | Art & Engineering
The club was started by my good friend Jen Harris who owns and operates the JH Collective, a company of professional writers.
Jen always shares a lot with the group, and tonight she gave us all orange calcite to empower our sacral chakra. This was the last of a five part session.
This session was focused on fear and terror, physical, spiritual, and fantasy!! It was one of my favorite sessions.
We discussed sexuality, role reversals, and attempted to write from the view of the opposite gender. This was one of our more interesting sessions.
We explored the sense of smell, and found it interesting how few words we have to describe it, while site, touch, taste, and hearing have so many. We wondered why.
This was the first session in which I wrote a single piece of Science Fiction, which really surprised me and prompted some extracurricular writing sessions. It's wonderful that this group so organically encourages me to explore new themes.
This early, more lightly themed session inspired our later full Gender Swap session. It's always interesting to face your own stereotypes as you attempt to write from another's perspective.
