The family and I are in isolation this week at the lake, feeling super grateful that we have the opportunity to be here at this critical point. We are also really blown away by all the supportive chat groups, virtual DJ sets, Zoom parties, invitations to writing projects, and intense professional collaborations that are springing up. Since we have our hands pretty full with remote projects all of a sudden, and the internet here is actually faster than it is at home, I decided to do a quick video to pose a question: What are your creative successes and obstacles?
What are you doing now where you feel like you’re succeeding creatively and everything is working, and where do you feel like you’re either blocked, or there’s something in your way?
With your answers, I’m planning to steer future posts in useful directions where we can highlight and analyze what’s working, and find alternative ways to look at some common road blocks. I’ve been working together with artist & entrepreneurs on parallel tracks across the map to develop an educational program aimed at accessing deeper creativity in art, business, and life in general. More on that soon!
For now, if you’re interested in where this goes and want to bring it your way, drop a a quick comment below and let me know one thing you’re doing where you feel like the creativity is flowing, or tell me about your creative obstacles, even things as simple as “taking care of the kids” or “staying motivated.”
Lastly, I appreciate the suggestions people sent for the pandemic reading list, I’m looking forward to checking out House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski and Earth Abides by George R. Steward as soon as I can get my hands on them! Don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter at the top of the page if you’re into it, and check back next week. Stay safe everybody.
