DIGITAL Creative Bubble: Writing
Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.
The Creative Bubble Guide with grounding exercises and eight writing activities for you to try, all tailored to exploring grief and loss.
Creativity is a powerful way to help us to navigate many life challenges including sickness, stress and grief and loss (Walter, 2012). Many studies have shown how writing through grief and loss, and especially for bereavement can help find containment amidst chaos, routine and structure, tracking the passage of time, and a place for our feelings to emerge (Adams 1990, pp102-112; Moss 2012).
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, you need to untangle how you’re feeling, or you just want to try a different way of letting out your emotions then the Creative Bubble guide is for you. You don’t need to have any experience in writing to be able to get a lot out of the guided activities for you to try out. The activities are designed for anyone to pick up and do. We shared some of our thoughts about why we think creative writing is so important on a blog featured by Cruse, the National Bereavement Charity.
In our previous work running creative writing workshops we saw first hand how powerful writing can be. Rachel Shore shared her story with us after joining a creative writing session:
“And I wrote. Exploring my loss within poems has been my therapy, a way of transforming the pain, externalising expressions of the love we shared, shared with anyone willing to listen. New connections have been cathartic, through The Loss Project I have joined others in conversation about loss and its impact. This has been insightful, empowering and restoring. The Loss Project acknowledges my journey and has supported me on the first road to express myself and my loss in a public place.”
Q: What age group is this appropriate for?
A: We recommend that Creative Bubbles are best for age 16+, but we are developing products all of the time and are intending on creating a range for younger people and children.
Q: What type of losses does this acknowledge?
A: Any loss can be worked through using the creative bubbles. Whilst bereavement is a core part of our work we work with all types of losses and the activites would suit the loss of a person, thing or circumstance.
