On The Go Creative! Show This Week: Collaboration For Creative Succcess

Today, in the creative living segment, I’m introducing Sondra Turnbull, (of Goddess Kindled) who will moderate the upcoming creativist club, launching in January. In creative publishing, we hear the three most significant publishing stories for authors in the past month from Porter Anderson. And creative writing in this show focusses on how to write haiku. It’s a fun habit — join me on Instagram to see mine — and guaranteed to bring more creative presence into your days. You can find out more about the show, read the transcript and subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher or YouTube on the Show Page.

The Go Creative! Show Episode 6: The Psychology Of Creative Success

To succeed in conscious creation, — turning a wish, want or creative intention into a lived experience — you need to understand creative psychology. Creatives — and creativists — often define success differently and work from different values and intentions to those promoted by the conventional world.

Introduction to Creative Challenge In the second week of each month, The Go Creative! Show will look closely at creative challenge.

Add More Imagination.

The ease with which we create anything is in direct proportion to the amount of imaginative energy we bring to the task. Go deep enough and we find ourselves in flow — that magical sense of being a conduit, of the thing being made through, not by, us. This is the truest and most joyful experience of creativity. Accessing it is, paradoxically, a matter of Read More
