Writers happiness tools draw from inspirations such as happiness science, enlightenment traditions, psychology, mindfulness, writing techniques, creativity studies, dance, music, theater, neuroscience, Lin-Manuel Miranda (because, well, yay), and, really, anything else that seems fun or useful.
What they all have in common is that they are all designed to help you access more joy and more creative flow — and to help you create the psychic space we all need to write.
When you join the Writers Happiness Movement, you get access to every happiness tool for writers that is created, all free.
What are happiness tools for writers, exactly?
Happiness tools for writers are anything that helps you have a happier life and more writing time. Right now, they include
• Weekly 5-minute Writers Happiness Exercises. These are not writing prompts in the traditional fashion; rather, they are happiness prompts written specifically for writers, designed to help create a baseline of happiness to inspire more creativity and innovation and a deeper joy around life and your writing.
•Live, online yoga for writers twice a week: Tuesdays and Fridays, 12-12:30 pm Pacific time. When you join the movement, you’ll get the schedule and links every Monday.
• Live, online writing retreats offering writing time, yoga, and community at your own home! These happen every other month and are virtual versions of the Splendid Mola Retreats for Writers that have been happening since 2015. Here’s all the info.
Let’s rewrite the world, one writer at a time.
The Writers Happiness Movement grew from wanting to live in a world where happiness, kindness, and the arts matter more than money. So we’re building it.
Know a writer who could use a little boost? The Writers Happiness Movement sends writers tiny cash infusions via smail mail, tucked in cool artist-designed cards.
Want to live in a world where joy, kindness, and writers are valued? Us too. Become a patron of writerly happiness at $5/month, and we’ll do the rest to make it all happen.
