September theme: writing with authenticity

Just a quick reminder that I’m going to be moving to a more focused, themed approach to Confident Writing come September.  I’m going to be exploring the ingredients of writing with confidence on a month by month basis, starting with authenticity.

Thanks to everyone for all the feedback I’ve had so far - I’ve already had loads of ideas, comments, feedbacks, book recommendations not to mention offers to help write some material - and that’s before we’ve even got started…(I’ll be in touch soon to follow up on some of the practicalities for those who have offered to contribute directly)

Meantime I’ve chosen an image to link to the themed posts: it’s this beautiful close up of an oak leaf in September, from Teo at Flickr.

There’s an association with the time of year of course (for us in the northern hemisphere anyway) but it also made me think of - well lots of things really:

  • the power of self-expression
  • the lines of time, experience and truth that run through our writing, our narrative, our lives
  • the beauty of each unique, perfect leaf
  • how we grow when we’re true to ourselves
  • how writing with authenticity can help us to discover and express that truth

I wonder what it says to you?
