    Yen writes: I’m a novice at F-R-E-E-Writing and I was lucky to have the chance to learn it from Orna, at a class she held last year. As a writer, I had my reservations about using this technique for personal thoughts. And, as someone who is very pragmatic in my life approach, I had doubts as …

  • Two Creativists Talk About A New AdVenture

    Yen: Early in December 2014, I told Orna about my decision to go freelance, and she responded by asking me if I cared to join her on an adventure. I was scared, feeling slightly unsure, but deep down, my gut said yes. So I said yes. Since then, I’ve been getting to know Orna through …

    It’s the birth centenary of the Irish poet WB Yeats and all sorts of excitement are planned. The great poet and playwrights has been for me, as for so many Irish writers, inspiration and fascination.

Receiving and giving are opposite directions of energy flow, inextricably linked together.  Like breathing in and out, both are needed to keep flow freely moving .
