Revving Up!


Happy New Year, everyone! I'm so excited that we're about to start our 12-week exploration of creativity through 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women by Gail McMeekin. And to make it even more inspiring for you, each week I will be posting an audio interview with a Highly Creative Blogger. These women will stir your creative soul! You'll be hearing from:
Each of these women will share with you how they invite their creativity out to play, what challenges they face as a creative spirit and their strategies for getting over them. Between your posts and these interviews, I think we're going to start a creative revolution in 2009!

We get into action this Friday, when I will put up a post for secret #1: acknowledging your creative self. You'll be able to to submit your direct link to the post you've written with your thoughts on the chapter, your responses to the exercises, whatever you want to share on the topic. You also be able to hear my interview with the ever-inspiring coach and artist Jennifer Lee.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to be in touch. Enjoy you're reading, and I'll look forward to a fantastic Friday this week!

Jamie,
This looks wonderful. I just recieved my book in the mail, so i am very excited about it. I will be in B.C. working at the Banff Centre and then at an Art Farm, so i really hope that i will be able to fully participate!
Thanks so much for organizing this!

Well now Jamie, I'm even more excited! I hope my library book comes in by then though...

Last night, in honor of joining this group, my girlfriend gifted me with a very special journal to help me springboard into the thick of it. Awesome, because there's nothing more inviting to me than blank pages where I can document many of my thoughts...in fact I'm going to christen my "creativity blog" with a post about it, I'm that inspired!

Yay, 3 more sleeps!

Peace,
Lil

Hi. I just found you through Kelly Rae, but this sounds like just exactly what I need right now. I still have to get the book, but I hope it's not too late to join, even if I am a little behind.

It's very exciting and that line up is inspiring.
