Writing Workshops

I'd like to start one, and possibly a series, of writing workshops. Right now, there are lots of opportunities open for writing:

  • Our Area newsletter
  • The Forum
  • Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism
  • The new CAL about intimacy
  • The new daily reader
Some ideas of things to write about:
  • A Step Two experience
  • What it was like to be a newcomer
  • How my HP differs from my previous understanding of God
  • How something I observed in the natural world relates to my recovery
  • How something I observed can be a metaphor for a principle of recovery
  • How a relationship changed as I began applying program tools
  • How a particular activity is different now with new perspective
  • What it is like to be a sponsor
  • What it is like to have a sponsor
  • Ways that the amends process surprised me
  • How any of the steps surprised me
  • How service affected my recovery
  • How sponsorship affected my recovery
  • How working the steps affected my recovery
  • What it was like to accept the opportunity to share my story as a speaker
  • What specific benefit(s) I received from working a particular step
  • A favorite slogan and ways that it helps me
  • How a particular meeting format (speaker, step study, newcomer, spiritual, etc.) works especially well for me
