Your Monday Motivator: What Are You Creating This Week?

This week’s Monday Motivator is coming to you a day late because of the UK and US’s holiday weekend. If you were lucky enough to have some time off, I hope you thoroughly enjoyed it! So what are you creating this week? Creative writing wise, I’m working on a book and workbook for writers, How Authors Create Money and Meaning. One chapter from that book is called “Sell Yourself Without Selling Your Soul” and I’m also creating an audio presentation based on it, for Indie Author Fringe on Saturday.

Your Monday Motivator: The Creativist Club

What are you creating this week? I’ve been putting the finishing touches to the Creativist Club. We are still very much in beta but Sondra and I are there, welcoming a few new members in, and helping them to frame their intentions, set timelines and workflows.

Our Wound Is our Way
