First Mindful Writing Day

The first ever Mindful Writing Day happened November 1st!

The idea: to start November by dedicating some minutes to mindful writing and sharing this moment with others. Over 1000 joined already in the Mindful Writing Day Facebook Group.

Mindful Writing Notes
On November the 1st people all over the world took some minutes to pay proper attention to one thing and wrote it down, and then shared this moment ("small stone").

The notes are now online:

This day is organized by Fiona & Kaspa from Writing Our Way Home. Here's their introduction to Small Stones and the Mindful Writing Day:

Small Stones
"Writing small stones will stitch you to the world, one word at a time. They will point you towards the deep pink frilly roses in next door's front garden, and the swooshing sound of trains in the distance....

You don't have to have any experience of writing to write small stones. You just have to find three minutes, open your ears, eyes, nose, mouth, fingers and mind, and then write down what you notice. You can read examples of small stones at our blogzine, a handful of stones."

People all over the world will be joining us on the 1st of Novermber and posting their small stones on their blogs or Facebook or Twitter.
