What’s Special about Writers?

“We have the ability to go within our hearts and give what we discover (there) a voice”, said internationally acclaimed author, Gay Hendricks , keynote speaker at the San Francisco Writers for Change Conference.

Gay Hendricks announced at the conference that Five Wishes will be his last book. He will now committ his knowledge, expertise, and experience to mentoring the next generation of writers. In alignment with his passion for technology, writing, and helping others awaken to their power, authenticity, and expanded relationship potential, Hendricks continues to be on the forefront of conscious relationships and new media publishing.

When working with editors, Hendricks reminded attendees that “It’s a rare person who hears what she/he doesn’t want to hear.”

Hendricks encouraged conference attendees to:

Take the time to write one good page a day. ( He has been doing so for 30 years)

Ask yourself:

  • How can I serve?
  • Is this true? Is this the truest way I can say this in the written word?
  • How am I getting in my own way? or How is my brain getting in my way?
  • As a writer, what does my audience need? What will awaken my audience to the voice and truth in their own hearts?

Many thanks to Elizabeth Pomada and Michael Larsen, Co-founders and Directors of this 2nd annual conference, for creating such an inspirational platform for change!
