My Creative Week: Week 30, Q3, 2019

For me, this week was all about poetry and a new book decided to emerge. Below is what happened during my creative week: week 30, Q3, 2019. How was your creative week? You can share yours with us in our Facebook group here.

My creative intentions, as outlined in the Facebook group last Monday, were:

  • MAKER: Sign off on the Go Creative! Quarterly Planner with my designer, the ever wonderful Jane Dixon-Smith, who is responsible for most of the sumptuousness you see around you here. Continue recording for the poetry audiobooks. Make a new poetry chapbook, Inspirational Poetry VI, from my ten latest poems.
  • MANAGER: Get the transaction cart tech problems sorted and set up the affiliate pages. In Creative Flow Practice group, we’ll be meditating on, and f-r-e-e-writing about creative conditions: how to ensure we have the optimal inner and outer conditions for conscious creation.
  • MARKETER: Upload a perma-free poetry book to all platforms, which will point to a lead-magnet for email sign-ups.

Here’s what I actually achieved:

MAKER: The new poetry chapbook, Inspirational Poetry VI, was made. And a new Selected Poems too, when I realised I had enough for a new collection. And while it wasn’t on my map, I got started on large book editions, which I’ve been thinking about for a while. All that meant, however, that my top priority for the week (sign off on the Go Creative! Quarterly Planner with Jane) didn’t happen. Not a lot of recording this week either, as I veered off map. To next week.

MANAGER: Transaction cart tested and sorted but setting up the affiliate pages goes to next week (see above).

MARKETER: Permafree poetry book uploaded and lead-magnet in place.

What about you, how was your creative week? What did you produce, process or promote in your creative business?

In our Go Creative! in Business group, each Monday we outline our creative intentions to each other. And then we follow up on a Saturday with what we’ve actually accomplished during the week. What’s unique about our 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  Marketer (who promotes).
