Hi! My name is Nora Snyder and I write things.
I also do related adventures like writing groups, community service, events, and other related artistic enterprises like:
Writer’s Block Party, my support and resources network for word creatives
And my writing (!) which has been described as creative non-fiction, almost poetry, and/or magical realism.
You can start right here with my most recent posts, or see this for how to be a joyful nihilist, or check this out for how to be a fire-breathing Sagitarian or go here to see what clan of hummingbird you might belong to. And don’t be shy, give my NEW handy search box a run for its money.
And speaking of money, if you find a piece that resonates with you- that you are glad you found, that made you laugh, that made you cry, please show your appreciation with a contribution to my tip jar located at the end of every post.
Twelve Omen Days Writing Challenge- Begins December 25, 2021
During the Twelve Omen Days, one seeks a sign or omen in nature (we can interpret nature loosely) on each of the twelve days between Christmas and Twelfth Night; each day represents a month in the coming year, and the omens received will bring insight into the lessons that month will offer.
I invite anyone who feels moved to use the twelve omen days to not only tune in to the signs available to us in preparation for the coming year but also to infuse our writing practices with the magic of this interlude, giving ourselves a well deserved time of contemplation, mindfulness, and creative expression in community.
