Join me for a writing session at 5pm GMT
Here's your link to join the In Writing Creative Hour today.
It was great to see so many faces at the last In Writing Creative Hour – thank you so much for helping me to grow this into a regular event.
As promised, I’m trying out a later start time than usual for today’s Creative Hour: 5pm GMT, to allow some of you to join who perhaps aren’t in the right time zone for the usual 10am London slot.
If you haven’t taken part in a Creative Hour before, the idea is that we get together on Google Meet, say hello to one another and have a quick chat about what we’re working on, and then write in companionable silence for the best part of an hour. I find it a lovely opportunity for some Sunday creativity, and all the nicer because you have the company of other writers.

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 feel free to chime in during the chats at the beginning and end – I’d love to hear from you.
5.05pm-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 journalling or write a letter.
5.55pm-ish: We’ll return to wrap up the hour and reflect on how it went.
6pm: Say goodbye, and maybe make yourself a particularly good dinner.
