Caution: Rant - Writing Well As a Barrier to Creativity?

A few years ago, I ran across a blog post where the author claimed that those who think that writing well is important sap the life out of creativity. She recounted how she was discouraged from sending a letter to Mad Magazine because her English teacher critiqued it too harshly.

I feel sorry for her that she let one person's comments keep her from doing something that to this day she regrets. How much do we read and hear that if we're really passionate about something we should go ahead and do it anyway? How passionate are you about something if one person can stop you cold? In the words of Scott the Nametag Guy: stand up, speak up, or get shut down.

3  Stages of the Writing Process

(In other words, it's not just sit down and write it perfectly - all at once!)

Had a fabulous coaching call with one of my private clients. We made great progress on taking a writing project that felt huge to her and breaking it down into manageable chunks.  Plus, she loves it when one of her assignments is to get out her sketchbook and zig and zag!

Great news! I'm being interviewed by Lori Lynn Smith on Passion Diva Radio. The show explores many different levels of holistic living and business.

Right up my alley with the whole writing from your soul.... it's not just about working for work's sake or making a buck (although nothing says that we can't be prosperous at what we do), but it's about delving deeply into your purpose and message.

I am going to be on the show next Wednesday, April 23, at 1:00pm eastern | 12:00pm central | 11:00am mountain | 10:00am pacific.

You can listen in here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/lorilynnsmith. In my interview, we are going to chat about Unleashing Your Authentic Self - Through Words.

You should definitely stop by! You can just listen or you can call into the show and chat with us on air, ask questions or just say "Hi". The Call-in # is (347) 637-3175. Just hit 1 when prompted to do so.

If you can't make it, no problem... the show is available for listening any time on Blog Talk Radio and will also be quickly available as a free downloadable podcast on iTunes.

I look forward to connecting with you then!

9 Laws of a Project

I'm a busy gal. I work with three clients managing their businesses and bringing all my strategic thinking and natural gifts of systems to bear, along with my Writing From Your Soul business where I coach and train people on creating content from their soul.

I also have a family, and hobbies, and occasionally I try to be good to my body. I try to remember to relax and not work so damn hard all the time. (I'm better at that some days than others.)

So, yes, I'm busy.

And with all that I do, I have goals... projects, if you will. I've created systems and tools and exercises to help me and my peeps clarify their goals and then reach them.

To be honest, some days it feels like a battle to reach those goals. Every day this week, for example, I've had on my daily to-do list to work on my next big project. And it's just not getting done.

I've had to think about why that is. My first excuse is that I'm busy. (But I'm always busy.) My second excuse is that unexpected things have come up this week. (But they always do.)

So it's more than that. I haven't followed the 9 Laws of a Project... Hence, this week's article. Read more here...

Phoenix rising... becoming who I'm meant to be
Introduction
Words are crucial to my well-being and awareness. I see the world in words. I don't see it in pictures or images, just words. So, if your name is Jack, when I think of you, I think J-A-C-K. I don't imagine your face or hear the dulcet tones of your voice in my head. Just words.

That need, want, desire, essence fuels all who I am. I once thought I'd be a lawyer, and use words to defend others. Once I realized that wasn't the life for me, I headed toward teaching English. What better way to be around words in the world? Well, teaching in a junior high where kids were more concerned with pregnancy, gangs, and just surviving didn't do it for me either.

I went on to start a virtual assistance business, and I worked with some amazing people. When you work virtually, you get to use and depend on words quite a bit!

After a while, though, writing kept calling to me. I left my successful VA practice and started another company to help people become stronger writers. Along the way, I practiced what I preached and worked on my own writing.

Today, I'm doing what I love: writing and connecting with others to help them write well and create a life around words.

May we all write well.
