Learning what was not taught at the Hay House writer's workshop
After some resistance and conflicting internal dialogue, I attended the Hay House writer’s workshop over the weekend of June 28/ 29, 2104, and was ultimately glad I did. Like a professor who has taught the class a hundred times but still loves it, Reid Tracy’s delivery was knowledgeable and deliberate. Besides, I always feel affinity for those with first names as last names @Reid Tracy.
Gregg Braden was spectacular as a speaker, sharing a blend of wisdom from the scientific and spiritual arenas. While I am familiar with Doreen Virtue (as a certified Realm Reader), Dr. Wayne Dyer, Stuart Wilde, Dr. Masaru Emoto, and of course the Grand Dame herself Louise Hay, I am not in the circle of folks who know a lot of empowerment authors, including Gregg. His presentation was excellent, leading us through an intuition exercise, and I ended up buying one of his books, Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer…will let you know how it goes.
The videos from Doreen and Louise were enjoyable, and Nancy Levin’s example of how to transition from corporate over-achiever to a published author and speaker was inspirational.
However, my two biggest take-aways from the workshop were not anything they taught directly, although the info on publishing, editing, and book proposals was valuable.
One: I don’t have to write for/ as myself. There are creatures who write your book or parts of your book for you! I want to be one of these creatures! Thinking back, I have already done this for others on a smaller scale in the past, so why not expand into this role in the future? If you need a Ghost Writer, or as I like to say, Ninja Writer, let me know!
Two: I have an idea brewing for a new book...although I also learned I must be laser-focused if I am to keep on the page-a-day writing train in order to be complete by the end of the year!
So let me sign off here and get writing! Penni
