How to join me today for the Creative Hour
A writing session at 10am London time.
It’s In Writing Creative Hour day! Which is good news for me, because for the last few weeks I’ve had a pile-up of journalism deadlines and have completely neglected my creative writing.
If you’re new to In Writing: the Creative Hour is a roughly twice-monthly get-together for paying subscribers on Google Meet, where we can talk a little about what we’re working on (for those who feel inclined to chat) and then write together in companionable silence. It’s a small act of writerly solidarity, and a nice way to feel productive on a Sunday.
*Please note that the next Creative Hour will be on Sunday 11 December at 5pm GMT – so if the morning slot doesn’t work for you, please come along to the next one instead.

I’d love you to switch your camera on for the first few minutes while we settle in, and keep it on throughout the hour if you can bear it (it adds to the feeling that we’re all working side by side). As for microphones, we’ll follow a general rule of staying on mute, but unmuting when we want to speak. Please chime in during the chats at the beginning and end – I’d love to hear from you.
10.05am-ish: Writing time. If you’re running late, you’re welcome to slip in whenever, but don’t be offended if we don’t say hello. As for what to write – it’s totally up to you. Pick up a project that you’ve been neglecting, start something new, or if you’re stuck for inspiration, do some morning pages, journalling or write a letter.
10.55am-ish: We’ll return to wrap up the hour and reflect on how it went.
11am: Say goodbye, and feel pleased with yourself for the rest of the day.
