+R. Harlan Smith To your last point: tell me about it! It absolutely would be intolerable to not write...I don't feel that I would have a voice. Thanks for the comment, I'm sure Jackie will appreciate it.

In honour of my new twitter chat ( #Wholewriter , starting tonight at 6pm EST!) How can I not give some love to this post from my friend +Kayla Hollatz!

This post is great if you're just getting into the world of #twitter   #chats !

#creativepreneurs   #writers   #socialmedia  
Before Twitter, I felt like an alien. Heck, my friends even called me an alien. No, not because I have a green complexion or antennas coming from my head but because I was passionate about different things than my support sys...

FALLING

Sometimes, doing what you love feels a lot like falling. 

If you really, really want to live your dream, you HAVE to throw yourself into it, eyes closed and arms open, and (as Amanda Palmer once said) you just have to trust that the people out there will be there to catch you. 

But what happens when you launch yourself out into the open, and you're afraid? If you hesitated, or held something back? If you clung to the edge of your comfort zone so when you fell, it scraped your fingers?

I'll tell you what happens. The weight of your fears are heavy enough to crush you. 

The people that would have been there to catch you will be FORCED to move out of the way, because you and all your fears were just too heavy.

That has been my personal "aha" today. What does holding back or playing small achieve, apart from confirming the belief that you will fail? 

How ridiculous is it to believe that if you give your absolute all, no one in the entire world will be there for you?

I'm living by this idea now, so expect a lot of new stuff from me in the coming weeks. :)

We all have our "favourite" excuses.

The ones we use whenever we feel anxious or afraid, so we never have to push ourselves out of our comfort zones. 

When you use these excuses, you feel they justify why you're not doing what could change your life. What are yours?

Introducing The #Wholewriter  Weekly Twitter Chat (TONIGHT at 7pm EST!)

It's about time I introduced you to your strongest, bravest, most creative self: the #wholewriter  inside of you who is without fear. 

What's it all about?

The basis of the #wholewriter  chat is about taking small, practical steps to becoming a better writer and better person.

It was created to help you improve your writing and life; and it will be based around personal development, spirituality, and holistic wellbeing. You'll get to meet other like-minded writers, grow your following and be part of a tribe of successful, courageous writers and authors.

How does it work?

We meet up every Thursday at 7pm EST on Twitter, so all you need to do is search the hashtag   to join the conversation. 

As the host (@thatwritergirl), I will be posting questions that start like this: "Q1, Q2, Q3" etc. So for example:

Q1: What have you done to nurture your creative spirit this week?

You can then reply with your answer by adding "A" and the number of the question before you send the tweet. So, for example:

A1: I'm working on my self-confidence, so I joined a writer's group!

NOTE: At the end of the tweet, you also have to include the   hashtag so that everyone in the conversation will know that you're involved in the conversation, and will be able to see your tweet.  

When does it begin?

It starts TONIGHT at 7pm EST. So mark your calendar, set your alarm and join me if you’re looking to transform your writing and your life. I'd also definitely look into getting Tweetdeck if you don't already have it - it's a great way to monitor the chat when the time comes, and it's free!

Thanks for reading all this, and I hope to see you tonight!

Thanks +Carrie Brummer for featuring me on your wonderful website, Artist Think!
 
Author +Stephanie Lennox  speaks to the inherent nature of being a creative. We can fight it all we want, our desire to be creative, but it will never leave us. It took me years of battling, but ultimately I knew all along I was an artist and a writer. It wasn’t until I fully embraced that part of me that I could really grow. Did you always know you were a creative? When did you realize it? Or, more importantly, when did you embrace it?

Leonard Cohen once called being a poet a 'verdict', not a career choice.

[NEW!] The "Mina Schwartz" Effect (Or, How To Stop Comparison From Destroying Your Writing Career.)

Frankly, I’m quite sick of women like Mina Schwartz. 

She (or, insert other highly enlightened author/speaker/guru whose blog you follow here) represents something unintentionally daunting for the everyday writer: the idea that if you're not at her level of success, you're not a success.

She represents the plague of comparison that is sweeping across the nation due to the idea of “insta-success” that's being shoved down our throats at every turn. Here's what I propose you should do about it...

A huge thanks to +Regina Anaejionu for this incredible, in-depth video on getting started with Pinterest. I think it's the best video she's ever made...and not just because I asked the question!

I seriously could not be more grateful for this, and I think it will help a lot of people out there who want to use Pinterest a bit more seriously. All #bloggers , #writers  and #entrepreneurs  NEED to check this out.
 
Made a quick tutorial in answer to a question: "How do I get started on Pinterest as a #blogger ?"

And, since it's moi, there's a 3-page worksheet you can download and fill out as you go along.
