At the end of our retreats, participants reflect on their time by responding to a prompt:  “I used to think…But now I think…”

I used to think I didn’t know what to do with my mother’s letters, but now I think I have a place to start with them.

I used to think I could write alone, but now I think I love being among friends.

I used to think that my writing wasn’t that strong, but now I think my own voice is enough.

I used to think that important change only happens slowly, but now I think that it can jump start almost overnight.

I used to think that teaching writing could be formulaic, but now I think that facilitated writing allows us to break all kinds of molds.

I used to think, “See Spot run,” but now I think, “The dust kicked up on a country road as my beagle chased the ducks.”

I used to think that I had to know the whole story in my head before I could write it, but now I think that real and powerful stories can spill out of me and tell themselves in fifteen minutes!
