as you wish
If you’ve found your way to this site, you could be a Living Out Loud e-zine subscriber, a social media follower/bud … or maybe you stumbled here through a link from the Listen to Your Mother production, or one of the telesummit’s or blogs where I’ve participated/guest posted over the years.
Or maybe you googled “writing,” “journaling,” “how-to journal,” “journaling for wellness” or something like that.
Then again, you could just be an old pal determined to find me.
Whoever you are: Hello there; hey. I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m here (in the world, and in my biz/on this website) spreading the gospel of a writing practice/journaling to writers and wanna-be writers.* I’ll show you how easy it can be to write, and how taking the time to be with yourself in this way can transform your life. (and make you a better writer too, if that’s your goal …) But really, I’m all about taking a stand for adding more compassion to the world … starting with YOU.
Writing will help you:
- bust through your perceived imperfections and “not good enough”s
- recognize the messages and expectations you’ve internalized
- shine a light on your blind-spots and help you claim your strength, power and fabulosity.
- live more mindfully, intentionally, and awesomely.
And all that ripples out to people around you and makes the world way more awesome. (cause, y’know i really do want world peace …)
Stick around, check out the blog – a place to get insight and encouragement for your writing/writing life (as well as lotsa pop culture references). While you’re there, comment and ask questions (i love connecting with mah peeps), and play along with Throw-down Thursdays - a weekly play-date/inspiration/exercise to get your writing groove on. (look up … see that tab that says “blog?” that would be it …)
To get on my insider’s list where you’ll get a bi-monthly dose of writing encouragement and inspiration – as well as special offers, news and updates about in-person workshops, tele-classes and the soon-to-launch Writer Babes** online community and retreats - just use that e-zine sign-up form to your right on the side bar.
And be sure to say hi in all the social media worlds: “like” the Facebook page, or follow me on Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram (you’ll find inspiration, ideas, boatloads of support and special offers there).
You can always drop a line too; I reply. (heydeb [at] debcooperman.com)
*all you have to do to “be a writer” is write, so guess what? you’re a writer.
**and, FYI, writer babes are not exclusively women y’know. case in point: john cusack. robert downey jr. hello? total babes.
