I’m a Little Bit of a Big Deal on Medium

Today, I am 30 days into my “100 Days of Creative Self-Care!

You may remember that part of my plan for this project was to write and submit my writing fearlessly. I’m happy to say that within this first trimester, I am already reaping the rewards. In addition to writing something every day (whether I publish it or not), I have been consistently writing on Medium and mustered up the courage to submit a few stories to popular publications.  I am now a “Top Writer” on Medium in the “This Happened to Me” category.   Continue reading

100 Days of Creative Self-Care in Effect!

With Venus firmly planted in retrograde and Mercury hot on her heels, this is the perfect time to (re)start a creative habit. I’ve allowed external forces to lure me off of my chosen path and hold my creativity hostage for far too long. Fellow creative soul, Denise Jacobs, has inspired me to begin the “100 Days of Creative Self-Care” project.

What is it?
Exactly what the name implies.

When does it start?
Whenever I want to begin… and that’s today.

What do I have to do?
Whatever I choose that will reconnect me to my creative spirit, nurture my mental and physical health, and make me write fearlessly.

It is, in essence, a challenge. But I don’t want to call it that. I’ve come to learn that the word “challenge” is not a motivator for me. I’m not highly competitive so it has the opposite effect. Instead, I will call it a practice. That’s what it is, after all.

A creative practice… starting with 100 days… continuing for life.  See my updates on Instagram and My Single Serving Life.
