The bottom line: I believe that finding your voice on the page transforms your life, that women thrive in community, and that creativity is stoked through authentic sharing and supportive feedback. I believe that our most meaningful work arises from our body not our brains. My motto is “Don’t think, just write.” In raising a family, writing, and life, I believe humor and bad words are often appropriate. In teaching and facilitating writing, I believe a writer’s original voice and artistic self-esteem must be NURTURED and CELEBRATED. And finally, I believe a writer is one who writes.
I live with my husband, kids, and the dog in L.A. I write about midlife, writing, parenting, spirituality, the creative process, and finding inner peace (sort of) on my weekly blog, Sleepless in the San Fernando Valley. Learn more at: www.robinfinn.com or www.heartsoulpen.com.
