New Video Series: Your Morning Walk with Sophfronia

I’ve wanted to do a video series for a long time now. Last year my friend Debbie Phillips made a video for our Women on Fire group every day for a year! Dr. Frank A. Thomas, another dear friend, goes live on Periscope every Monday morning at 8 a.m. to talk about sermon writing, his specialty. But I hesitated because I thought it would take too much time to record and upload videos. And, honestly, I wasn’t sure if I would have something to say!

Recently, while attending the Hobart Festival of Women Writers in Hobart, NY, a small community located in the Catskills, it occurred to me that I wanted to show where I was and share something of what was happening at the festival that day. A video seemed to be the best way to do that. I also thought about these two items:

  • I like taking walks in the mornings.
  • I like to talk about writing and the writing life.

Why not combine the two? Hence was born “Your Morning Walk with Sophfronia.” I was surprised how easy it was to record a simple video on my phone and get it uploaded and shared. So I’ll keep going! The videos will always be short, about three minutes. I aim to post 2-3 videos a week, but we’ll see how that goes. You can check out the first four here. I’ll post today’s video, the fifth, in a separate blog post and will continue to give each video its own post here from now on. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to get immediate notification whenever I post a new video.

I hope this will be the start of a great conversation or, at the very least, give you a few things to think about to help your writing. If you’re not a writer I hope you’ll enjoy the locations and seeing a little bit of my world.

If for some odd reason the videos below don’t show up, just use this link to go directly to my YouTube channel.

Take care, and thanks for watching!

In this first video I talk about letting go when something is not turning out well with a project.

On this walk, I talk about the sense of place when conjuring a location in your writing

Let’s talk about routine and why a broken one can be a good thing.

An ode to the mentors you can find on your bookshelf! Big shout out to and his wonderful book THE REMEDY FOR LOVE.
