I’m going to be out of pocket for a couple of weeks so I’m posting very early blogs. My wonderful website has lamentably disappeared, so I thought these more- descriptive posts might be useful. I imagine coming onto this site cold can be pretty confusing, since there’s often just a few words. My deep respect for the 314 people who’ve decided to follow me anyway. I welcome any and all questions and can’t recommend this practice highly enough. It’s kept me sane through many tough times.

I’m often asked about the correct way to do this writing. Does it have to be at a certain time of day? Does it matter whether I use a pen or pencil? Lined or blank paper? How much time should I give it? What if I already hear a response as I’m writing the question? What if nothing happens after I write a question?

I respect this sincerity and always hope it’ll be a comfort when I say that the only thing I know for sure is that  having  expectations of what will happen will stop this writing cold. Trust the process. Write when you feel the need or curiosity, on whatever and with whatever feels comfortable. Write down whatever comes to you, however it comes to you. If nothing happens, rephrase the question. If that doesn’t work, try another question, or try writing your full name with your alternate hand a couple of times.

These aren’t rules: they’re ideas that have helped me and others. Welcome your own ideas. And give your inner critic a little holiday as you welcome your own results.

Just a reminder: I’m posting snippets from my Alternate Handwriting sessions. Although written by and “to” me, I hope they’re broad enough to be of service to everyone. Here’s one for today:
