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. And Tuhin is working hard on adjusting the tech to our needs. This week, we’ll be sorting the final snags and watching the club take shape under this first tiny intake of members. What about you? What are you making of yourself this week? Each Monday I send a reminder email to creatives and creativists…

Your Monday Motivator: The Creativist Club is Open

What are you creating this week? For me, it’s all about the Creativist Club and I’m pleased to declare that, if not yet officially open to all, we are now admitting our first intake of followers and friends. What about you? What are you making of yourself this week? Each Monday I send a reminder email to creatives and creativists around the world.

Which…

Your Monday Motivator: Setting Your Core Intention

The theme of this week’s Monday motivator mail is “Setting Your Core Intention” Each week I send a Monday mail as a reminder to creatives and creativists. The pull of the outer,  conventional world is strong, with ever more distractions, so we all need reminding to turn inwards, and focus on what we most truly want. This is a weekly reminder to do just that. I share what I’m making this week and tips, tools and techniques from the Go Creative! books to motivate and inspire you, together with the latest episode of the Go Creative! Show, a free-writing prompt around our theme…

Creative Living: Be More Creative

The Difference Between New Year’s Resolutions and Creative Intentions

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results,” said Einstein. Or Ben Franklin or Rita Mae Brown or a few other people depending on what Internet quote site you favor. Whoever said it was right and they were probably talking about new year’s resolutions. One wide ranging study has found that almost 90% of people break New Year’s resolutions within days or weeks. Yet research also consistently shows that those who do make resolutions are more successful in creating what they want than those who don’t. Taken together, those two statistics add up to a frightening picture of terrible creative skills….

The Go Creative! Show Episode 3: Creative Writing Is Free-Writing

Creative Writing In the third week of each month, the topic for the Go Creative! Show is creative writing. This week, the first half of the show introduces you to free-writing, a form of expressive, creative writing, and an incredible tool for healing and transformation.

Creative Living: Be More Creative, The Creative Process

The Seven Stages of the Creative Process.

Trying to grasp the creative process is like trying to grasp water. The harder we try, the less we hold. The process is not linear but for certain purposes, we can treat it as if it is, and break it down into seven stages. Everything we create invariably goes through these stages on its way from imagined form (wants, desires) into material form (things, experiences). * * * Understanding these stages is useful no matter what we’re making, but it becomes essential when we’re engaged in a large project.
