Why I Started This Blog

This blog is for creative people who don’t know how creative they are.

It’s for those who procrastinate, doubt themselves, and long to make beautiful things.

I want to take you on a journey from discouragement to passion, inspiration, and astounding creative output.

Here’s why: I know what you’re going through. Although I’ve always surrounded myself with artists, I didn’t come to terms with being a writer until my 30’s. For decades, I battled some of the meanest creative blocks you’ve ever seen.

I’ve spent the last five years studying the creative process. Now, I’m publishing fiction, non-fiction, and, of course, this blog. I have more ideas than I can use.

In the spring of 2016, I conducted “Practical Creativity” workshops for artists and writers in British Columbia. I learned we all face the same questions, regardless of how “successful” we are:

  1. Am I good enough to do this?
  2. What’s the point?

I can provide answers to both:

  1. Yes, you are.
  2. To participate fully in the gorgeousness of life.

That’s why I’m obsessed with finding and sharing reliable, repeatable systems for completing artistic projects, and, once a week, I’ll publish an article or interview that’ll help you access your creative genius.

And I’ll be honest with you. Doubt still nibbles at me sometimes, and when it does, I’ll share how I get around it.

Because now, I always do, and I want you to be able to say the same.
