Creative Living: Be More Creative, Monday Motivator Mail

Your Monday Motivator: Collaboration For Creative Success

The theme of this week’s Monday motivator mailout is Collaboration For Creative Success. Each week I send a Monday mail as a reminder to creatives and creativists.

This weekly reminder is full of tips and techniques to motivate and inspire you – and offers simple creative maps and tools to help you prioritize what’s most important to you this week. I’ll also bring news about what I’m creating myself right now, offer a free-writing prompt around our…

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.

Creative Living: The Go Creative! Show

On The Go Creative! Show This Week: Don’t Think, Just Do!

Going on this week’s theme of “Don’t Think, Just Do!” The Go Creative! Show looks at a case study of that principle in action. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) began in the US with a few fiction-loving friends getting together to write a novel in a month and has grown into an international creative writing phenomenon that sees half-a-million people worldwide try to do the same.  In this week’s show, Nano’s CEO Grant Faulkner and I chat about the importance of fiction; how everyone has a story to tell; and how speed and a deadline helps you to get a novel out. And, indeed,…

Creative Living: Be More Creative, Excerpts

Today’s Book Extract: From The Psychology of Creative Success

The field of creative studies is enjoying a huge upsurge, with research coming to new conclusions and confirming ancient wisdoms. One finding is surfacing over and over, across a wide range of studies, including  anecdotal evidence, historical reports, the new neuroscience technologies, and our ability to map the world’s knowledge through digital archives and search engines. Creative flow is not, as we used to think, an elite state, possessed only by a few, but  a mind state that we all experience many times a day. Though writers and artists earn the appellation as a noun (“creatives”),  creative is more accurately…

Your Monday Motivator: Overview of Self-Publishing

The theme of this week’s Monday motivator mailout, which goes out each Monday morning to creatives and creativists worldwide, is an overview of self-publishing. We were live from the Publishing Perspectives stage at the Frankfurt Book Fair, where Porter Anderson and I ran a session called “An Overview of Self-Publishing 2016”. We looked at where the current wave of self-publishing came from, where it is going to and give lots of tips for aspiring and established author-publishers. And in the final segment of the show, I explain why we devote a monthly slot on the Go Creative! Show to self-publishing…

Your Monday Motivator: What’s Your Mind Mode?

This theme of this week’s motivator mail, which goes out each Monday morning to creatives and creativists worldwide, is the seven mind-modes that operate within us all. Think of a mind mode as a lens through which you view and approach your life, the filter through which you create whatever you’re making: other people, work and play, money and values, the universe and beyond. Your existence and its meaning. The seven mind modes run from tribal to transcendent, and each of them sees and creates life very differently. We pass through each of these mind modes many times a day, but at a…
