How was your creative week? In our Go Creative! in Business group, each Friday we record what we accomplished during the week, comparing it to the intentions we set the previous Monday.
I blog the weekly progress made by the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) and Orna Ross Publications (my author-publishing business), on Friday evenings in the hope that sharing the ups and downs of my creative path is useful to other authors and creatives.
There is so much misinformation about what it is to create and run a creative business. We need to know more about what goes on behind the scenes, when you take away the smoke and mirrors.
What’s unique about our Facebook group is that our report is given under the three hats a creative entrepreneur must wear: that of Maker (who produces), Manager (who processes) and Maximizer (who promotes).
Creative Accomplishments Week 44 2019
Creative Accomplishments Week 44 2019: Orna Ross Publications & Alliance of Independent Authors
- MAKER: Hopes of finishing Creative Self-Publishing before the holidays were dashed by the new VAT monster, who is almost tamed and should get back in its box now Halloween is over. But I did manage to get two ALLi guides to press. And also this quarter’s edition of The Indie Author.
- MANAGER: This was Manager’s week, and he spent some time talking strictly to Maker about over-optimism and general scatter-gunerry. Then he laid down a new law. Only one publication at a time in writing mode and one in editing. In other similar news, a change in circumstances has meant that live flow practice has had to be disbanded, for now. More details here.
- MARKETER: was busy promoting Allowing Now, my new book of mindfulness poems. (The ebook is on sale today at $2.99 so grab your copy now. The paperback or hardback makes a great gift.)
That was my Week 44 2019. What about you? What did you produce, process or promote this week?
Do pop over to our Go Creative! in Business Facebook group, where we support and motivate each other. It’s completely free, there’s no selling or self-promotion, and you can leave anytime if it isn’t the right fit for you. You’ve nothing to lose and it may be just the creative boost you need.
If you’ve been motivated, moved or inspired by my writing or any of my work, please consider becoming a patron.
If you already do support, then a deep bow.
Thank you. Sonas mór leat. Namaste.
