Maker’s Episode 4 – On Having Enough

There is a huge difference between being enough and having enough.If you are listening to this podcast, Maker's Episode 4, if you are embarking on a creative project, if you are daring to express yourself in any way possible but you don't feel that you are enough of a writer, artist, Maker… you need to reframe your self doubt into an understanding that youhave enough of what you need to progress into more. Are you scared that your writing isn’t good, that your painting isn’t lifelike, that your yoga practice isn’t bendy? If you can embrace the thought that you HAVE enough already inside you, then you have enough skill to start, you have enough interest to explore, you have enough curiosity to pursue your project. Having enough, as a starting point, allows you to begin. If you are sitting at your page or your canvas or your mat… then you have enough. You have made it this far… you have the passion, the drive, the interest, the curiosity… you have enough to get you started on a...

Lily’s Valley – Episode 9

Maker’s Episode 3 – Believing in Ideas

I think the question “where do your ideas come from?” is the most over-asked question of all time when famous creative people are being interviewed. It's an obvious question, because we are so in awe of writers like George RR Martin who can create incredible worlds and complex plots when we can barely write our way out of a haiku, but sadly the obvious answer is, duh, ideas come out of our heads. Today’s Blissfully Writing Maker’s Episode is about IDEA. It’s about Writer’s Block, what it is and how it cripples us, and how to reframe your relationship with IDEA so you can enjoy your creative process and Get The Work Done. Take-away points: Welcome ideas to come and play with you Believe that you deserve to play, and that you can create the ideas you invite in. Be grateful when ideas appear. Do The Work: only YOU can stop YOU from creating! Check out Elizabeth Gilbert’s fabulous book: BigMagic. Watch this short video with Neil Gaiman talking about ideas. Listen to Lily’s Valle...

Maker’s Episode 2: Limits as a Path to Creativity

In our second Maker’s episode we are exploring Limits. Structure. This is all about how to take that expansive creative drive that gives you the ideas and the epic excitement about your project…and helps you figure out how to actually make it appear in the world! Schedule I write in the early hours of the day. We’re talkin’… early! In a busy life, how can you carve out a schedule that works for you? What can you remove from your life... hint: scrolling... or add to your life to accommodate your creative necessity? Time Is it possible to work on your project for eight hours straight? Only if you are blessed with that kind of time! JK Rowling tells us to “be ruthless about protecting your writing days” but most of us only have moments, snatched on the go - in between This, That and the Other Thing. I say, “be ruthless about carving out your structure and your limits and sticking to them!” Goal How do you evaluate your productivity? How do you know you’re making headway on a ...
