Creative Girl: A new season awaits


I can feel a new season is upon me, this new season arrives with a little less grief (I hope). Resistance is starting to fade as I ponder and welcome the opportunity to be an artist in my community, a class leader! Wow, me! 

For as long as I can remember, I've been a Creative Girl, the need to create is stronger than my need for nutrition. I'm one of those CG's, that forgets to eat, until reminded by my weakened body.

Over the next six weeks, I'll be sharing my thoughts on this unique book, Creative Girl ... each Wednesday night ... right here on this little top of the world blog spot... I'll be joining Robin, who is joining Jane ... in a bit of an online BOOKread.

The author Katharine Sise, does a remarkable job reminding her readers of the creativity mindset, in the first chapter. Which reminds me of one of my favorite quotes.

Being a Creator at its deepest level means
that you create your life.
Being a Creator at its deepest level means
that your life 
is your work of art.”
– Christine Kane 

She shares several creative success stories with us in the first chapter, including one of an actress turned blog writer turned actress again.

Then, early in chapter two, Kath makes a point of reminding us not get so hung up on the many creative prizes, that we forget to create. 

My plans this year is to create every day in an intentional way.

  1. Hi my friend, I am hoping that this book continues to foster new dreams and help in the practicalities of building a creative business. So far it has taken where "Creative Entrepreneur" left me and let me see things from another angle. xoRobin

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from bloggingrevelations.com - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
