The Rough Writing Road

A 16 week self-directed Online Journaling Course
Your course is invaluable…thank you for the inspiration and spontaneity you sow into the word around you. (Y O)

Writers all… I have created an online journal course with the help of an online ‘guru.’

Our guiding metaphor is the rough road we travel along on the writing path. I prompt via stories, questions, quotations, poems, memories and suggestions. These are drawn from many traditions and faiths. Helping you find your voice. As you walk you enter a great conversation with yourself … and others.
Why the rough road? It’s writing that has not been crafted or edited. Spontaneous. Rough as in rough days. Some of the 16 units are: Retraining the Eye…
Many Selves…Dreaming…The Fire that warms you Five Times…Living the Questions Now…

Self directed = it’s a bit like a workbook where you don’t interchange with the writer. So if you feel solitary, why not get a friend to do the course and share your passwords? There is also is a chat room though sometimes you might find it an echoing space as some folk prefer to work alone…and you could join up with a travelling companion, a friend, and share your response to the stories and other entries.
While you could take the rushed Writing Road and complete the course in 4 weeks, I suggest you pace yourself over the 16 weeks so you can breathe, be, absorb and reflect. For each unit you’ll write for 64 minutes (4 x 16 minute bursts)


Why 64?
It’s 8 x 8 (infinity). 64 hexagrams in the I Ching the book of Chinese wisdom……. 64 base codons of the genetic code…. 64 squares on a chessboard? And don’t forget the Beatles:
If I’d been out till quarter to three Would you lock the door, Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I’m sixty-four? Cost R950
