Meditative Writing Exercises
This series of posts are unedited transcriptions of meditative writing exercises done from Jess Hinds’ Meditative Writing class at Jacob Krueger Studio. Jess starts with a guided meditation usually involving yourself and one of your characters (“whichever character appears is the right character”.) Typically, there is some visualization of one of the primary emotional needs (love, comfort, justice, respect, validation) which the writer transfers to the character, followed by an extensive free writing experience. These are my results, good, bad, boring and intriguing. “Moderately dark,” perhaps.
