Write Your Stress Out on Wednesday ... 'cause this isn't your average election day (or your average anything...)

Tomorrow is Election Day in the US (insert ominous music here ...), and it's unlike any other election I've ever been through.

Though I'm trying to stay hopeful, there's so much about it that is precarious and scary. There are fears of unrest, voter intimidation, and actual violence, on top of the nervousness around whether my candidate (who is predicted to win) actually will. (Because we remember how the polls failed us last time, right?)

I've already voted, and I'm doing some more virtual phone-banking to get out the vote in swing states, but even so, my nervous system is all a-jangle, and when I think about it, I often realize that my stomach muscles are clenched, and I haven't taken a deep breath for a while.

On top of that, of course, there's still COVID, massive unemployment, "home schooling", and here on the east coast: winter bearing down with darker and colder days making things just that much shittier.

That's why I've got two more Write Your StressOut sessions on the books. 

Designed to help women find a little oasis of sanity in this stress-filled world. The offerings are FREE, but registration is required.

The sessions are 70 minutes long, and there's one THIS Wednesday the 4th at 3:00pm ET, and another one later this month on the 20th at 6:30pm ET.

When I offered one of these sessions a few weeks ago, I received emails from women afterward saying such things as: "This was super helpful and calming ...", "Just what I needed ..." "It felt so good to just let it all out!..." and "Thank you so much for making this available. I'm so grateful!"

Sound like something that might be helpful for you? More details can be found here.

Got questions? Hit reply and ask; I'll answer.

PS. Have you voted yet? Have questions? Go to for info on how and where to do it.

PPS. Got a friend who'd be interested in the Write Your Stress Out sessions? Forward this email to them ... you'll both be amazed at how much better you'll feel after getting your feelings out on paper. (Believe me, I've gone through REAMS these last few weeks.) :)
