A New Way to Meet Your Character: a #HFGather Meditation

May 11, 2020 | HFGather, Inspiration

This morning’s #MondayMeditation with Laurie Calkhoven introduced a different way to meet your character, and touched on how important a character’s name is. As always, she started with a meditation, then gave a writing prompt followed by a Q&A. Thanks, Laurie!
