Now is the time to PLAN

I once heard a motivational speaker say that the journey toward success was made up of periods of ACTION and periods of PLANNING.

I know many fellow writers are using this time of self isolation and lock down to make progress on their writing projects. Myself, I have been typing out the revised edition to my book Paid To Dance: Asha’s Story Part Two. On Saturday, I sat down and planned out my writing goals and tasks until July, so I will have plenty to keep me occupied during this time.

However, as the world has grinded to a halt, so have many of our goals. I know there are many authors out there who have delayed the release of new books. Book marketing and promotion might seem a bit pointless when people’s attention is so distracted.

Drop the idea that you have to be constantly working and grinding to be successful. While we may not be able to take action on our goals right now, we can plan. Even amidst the overwhelming uncertainty, we can still plan. And when the time comes again, we can put our plans into action.





Corona Creative Challenge!

Self isolation.
Whatever situation you find yourself in, its a perfect opportunity to CREATE!

Whatever your creative pursuit, now’s the perfect opportunity to invest some time into your project. How often do we get this amount of time to do with as we please? Don’t let this time go to waste!

Now until the end of April (or whenever these extreme measures ease) I am going to be posting inspirational material and prompts to get you going and keep you motivated! On Sundays I’ll invite you to share your goals for the week ahead, and on Saturday I’ll invite you to share your progress!
I’m kicking off my Corona Creative Challenge by sharing how I’ve been spending my physical isolation (I prefer to refer to it as ‘physical’ isolation rather than social isolation. Just because we are keeping physical distance, doesn’t mean we can’t be social!)

This week I have been chipping away at the revised edition of Paid To Dance: Asha’s Story Part Two. Typing, typing, typing!
What have YOU been creating this week? What progress have you made? Share in the comments! Share links! Plug yourself and your work!
