Engage the Three Creative Energies: Work, Rest and Play

Are you looking forward to the creative week ahead? Do you know what you intend to create this week? Below is the map of my creative intentions for my author business for this week (Week 31 Q3 2019). Our theme for Creative Flow Practice this week is: Engage the Three Creative Energies: Work, Rest and Play.

Conditions can be external: time and space, for example, the right equipment and tools, sufficient silence and solitude, the right people around you. Or internal. That’s what we address in creative flow practice sessions. Giving our internal senses–perception,…

Monday Motivator Week 26, 2019: Creative Intentions

Here are my creative intentions, week 26 2019. In our Go Creative! in Business group, each Monday we outline our creative intentions to each other. And then we follow up on a Saturday with what we’ve actually accomplished during the week.

Here are my creative intentions for this week, wearing my three hats. MAKER (Producing): Complete the indexing of the update of Choosing a Self-Publishing Service and publish. I also want to…

Monday Motivator Week 25, 2019: Gift Your Creative Gifts

The theme for our Monday Motivator this week is: gift your creative gifts.

Austin Kleon has said that anybody who tells people to do what they love for a living should also have to teach a money management course. I have felt…
