You're Invited To "Get Creative!"
I'm just popping into your in-box to share details of an upcoming free webinar series that may take your fancy.
If you've been following my adventures this year, you'll probably know that I've had a lot of fun with my creative adventures. So far, I've written a collection of haiku poetry, composed a choral piece for 3 voices, written a children's fairy story, started taking photographs and penned the first 3 chapters of the most unromantic romantic novel in the whole world. Yup - you read that right : the whole world.
I think it will be quite a challenge for any romance novelist to beat four painful, untimely deaths (including a mud slide) by the end of the first 2 chapters. And no kissing. No smouldering looks. Nothing. I think my status will remain unchallenged for some time to come.
Not only has doing all this creative stuff been fun, it's also been a very powerful reminder that when we engage with the creative process, we discover more of who we really are. And that reminder felt so important that I had the urge to start a broader conversation about, and a deeper exploration of, creativity.
So here's me starting that conversation right now and inviting you to “Get Creative!”, a series of inspiring interviews with people who have found their creative groove. Over the course of 7 live interviews, you’ll get to meet a drummer, an author, an artist, a florist, a dancer, a poet and a storyteller.
During the interviews we’ll be :
You can find out more about the interviews, and register for those which appeal to you, here. One of my recent adventures was to actually launch this webinar series ~ I've posted my video blog for that adventure at the bottom of this newsletter (it may help you to get a better sense of my motivation for running these events!)
- Exploding some of the big myths about creativity.
- Exploring what creativity means .
- Discussing some of the incredible personal rewards associated with the creative process.
- Hearing about different ways of being creative.
- Hearing the personal stories of my guests.
- Offering some practical tips for getting creative (and for handling “gremlins”).
Ooh. And just one more thing before I go : I want to thank all of you who came along to my recent storytelling webinar! It was a wonderful international affair, with folk joining from right across the globe. If you attended the event live (or on the replay), and you'd like to explore your own story further (or develop your own storytelling skills through 1-1 coaching), you can find out more about working with me here.
I'll be popping back into your inbox in about a month's time, until then, I am just going outside and may be some time.
