#38Write | Habits: The November Writing Workshop Has Launched

#38Write—my global writing initiative—is a monthly series of online writing adventure workshops for place-passionate, culturally curious writers around the world. Each writing adventure focuses on one particular aspect of craft or the writing life (for example, writing kick-butt descriptions), and during each 38-hour adventure, writers connect with me and #38Write writers around the world via a Twitter hashtag and a group Pinterest board. Lots of good work getting done.


It’s November 3! Launch day for the Oct/Nov #38Write | Habits!

For this spectacular online writing workshop, we’re got 15 writers in 9 countries:

  • China
  • Japan
  • U.K.
  • U.S.
  • France
  • Australia
  • South Korea
  • Turkey
  • United Arab Emirates (I’m especially excited about adding the U.A.E. to the mix. I have a long history with this country, strong emotional ties, and many wonderful memories of my U.A.E. friends from college.)

As I type, writers around the world are digging into both their cultural and writing habits.

I’ve been using Pinterest in the workshop since the July and August workshops, and since it works so beautifully, I’m using it again. #38Write writers are already pinning on the group #38Write | Habits board. (Check it out here.)

And we’re off! If you’re curious about #38Write, check out the conversation among writers this weekend using the Twitter hashtag: #38Write.

Happy writerhead!
