WHAT IS KITCHEN TABLE WRITING?

Any time you sit down to write and allow yourself to “free write” which I term “fresh writing” you are doing Kitchen Table Writing.  You create “coffee writing: in a coffee shop, or “arm chair writing” at home, or propped up on a pillow for “bed writing,” or “airport writing”, “lunch time writing,” get the gist.  Anytime you let the energy flow whether you write on your computer or most especially by hand, when you tell the truth, touch your core, you are performing Kitchen Table Writing.

The essence of Kitchen Table Writing is to allow the pen to guide.  Let whatever comes out of your hand, your pen, hit the page.  Kitchen Table Writing is meditative, a time for praise, acknowledgement, gratitude; a time to sort out a challenge, or to describe the tree outside your window, the sky.  Free the writing spirit and let what needs to come through your subconscious erupt on the page.

One Soup Kitchen Writer describes this experience as a time to “get clear.” Another, surprised at what he had written, exclaimed, “It’s the pen’s fault.”

Whether you write fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, Kitchen Table Writing is the time that you, the writer, allow yourself to be fresh on the page.

I want to share this with all of you, you’ve probably heard about the negative health effects of sitting for prolonged periods of time. But standing on a hard, bare floor for several hours, whether it’s because you’re cooking a time-intensive meal over the stove or meal-prepping several ingredients at the counter, also takes a huge toll on your body. Not only is prolonged standing exhausting, but it also puts immense stress on your muscles and joints. Enter the amazon anti fatigue mats. These thick, multi-layered mats, usually made of either rubber, gel, or memory foam, provide a cushion between your feet and the hard floor, absorbing shock and relieving stress on the body.
