There’s an odd thing about writing (probably true for any art) – we can do more than we think. When we set out to write something, we think we have to have it all figured out. Then we’ll sit down and take dictation from our mind. But what I have seen for myself and hundreds […]
Organizing the contents of a book is a challenge! I seek to make The Busy Woman’s Guide to Writing a World-Changing Book super useful. I hate to waste people’s time, so I want to make sure everything I’m including is necessary and useful. Cutting up the chapter titles and moving them around is helping sort things out. Patience at the point is required!
Excited to teach this new class today at Two Hands Paperie. Magical Journey, Magical Journal is a unique travel and creativity class that has allowed me to look at what I really believe about magic and travel and creativity. I’ve had so many experiences that show me that the world is a magical place and that keeping an illustrated journal highlights that. I can’t wait to share this. The class sold out right away and there’s a big waiting list, so I suspect this is something others are craving too, this connection to magic. Would this be a class you would want to take from me?

I always post pictures of my art studio but I thought since it’s Monday and I am working in the home office, I thought it might be fun to share a peek into where I make a living. Working on my newsletter, enrolling students into my online writing class, Free-Write Fling and prepping my upcoming Paris art trip. I love variety! What are you working in this fine Monday?
I take a lot of online classes. You probably do, too. Confession: I don’t always manage to do all the homework. You too? I know from the other students in these classes that this ‘not doing everything’ causes significant angst. It’s like we’ve betrayed ourselves. We’ve signed up for something and then didn’t do all […]
If you’re not disciplined enough, try this approach to writing and creating more easily.
I’ve been honored to be a guest on several cool podcasts in recent months, and I plan to share them with you here on the Original Impulse salon. My pal and creative collaborator Cory Huff invited me to his Creative Insurgents video podcast last fall. We’d met up in Paris for pizza and he asked […]
Monday! Fresh start to a new week. (Rubbing hands together in glee but also, well, it’s cold here in Colorado.) Tell me, what will you write this week? Perhaps it’s a blog post or an essay. Or maybe that proposal or…the text for your new web site. Choose the ONE thing that is a bit of […]
