August Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

August 28, 2014

fractal-403463_250Creativity as a Way of Life

“Unless we are creators we are not fully alive. What do I mean by creators? Not only artists, whose acts of creation are the obvious ones of working with paint or clay or words.

Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living. Creativity is not limited to the arts, or having some kind of important career.”

Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water

Conscious Writers embrace Conscious Creativity as a way of life, and simultaneously discover a deeper, richer, inner creative well than ever before.

To your conscious & creative success!

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

As nature continues to shower us with an abundance of summer offerings (our home grown runner beans are especially gorgeous at the moment!) creative energy seems to be flowing abundantly for Conscious & Creative Writers as well.

Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats

First of all, having mentioned to a few people that I would be offering Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats over the next few months, two places out of the total of five were picked up straight away.

I love seeing writers in the flow of awareness and having the courage to make intuitive choices relating to opportunities that resonate with “just what is needed right now”.

These one, two or three day retreats are a chance for quality time away from your regular commitments to develop your ideas and make progress with your writing alongside the guidance and support of working with me one-to-one. Read more here.

Four Questions for Conscious Writers to Answer & Share

August 11, 2014

InvitationLast week, two invitations arrived on the same day for me to join Blog Tours which are connecting authors with similar interests and expanding the reach for the greater good of all concerned.

I love the principle of creative collaboration and deeply appreciate the resonance of writers sharing their work and supporting each other – so I’m in!

I decided to share my responses here to the four questions asked for the first Blog Tour of authors who write about intuitive understanding to lift the veil on my current writing and to spread the word about the idea.

My invitation for you is to pick up the Blog Tour thread and take it forwards so as many writers as possible can participate and benefit from the experience.

Here’s how it works. Each writer:

  • Is invited by someone to participate, introduces that person at the start of the post and includes a link to their blog. This invitation from me to you is all you need to get started.
  • Answers four questions about their writing as the main body of the post.
  • Invites another writer to continue the process and introduces them at the end of the post along with a link to their blog.
  • Posts what they have written to their blog and shares it with their audience via social media and more.
  • Asks the next writer to post their answers the following week on an agreed day and to continue the process.
Here we go …

IACCW Member Event: How Conscious Writers Can Gain Intuitive Insights & Ideas Immediately

July 31, 2014

Julia McCutchen interviews Becky WalshBeckyWalsh150 On THURSDAY  7 AUGUST

There are multiple ways we know what we know. Your own intuition is a remarkable way to access information you don’t consciously know you know with your mind. Don’t you just love those moments when you read something and think ‘wow, that’s genius… wait! I wrote that!’ If you want more of those moments, join us to learn how to:

  • Create liminal space for your intuition and the Muse to create together;
  • Find your ‘born to write’ book idea with intuition;
  • Appreciate the difference between gut and heart intuition, and how to use heart intuition to get over the voice of the inner critic;
  • Jump two years ahead, to what the world will need at the point you publish;
  • Use your somatic intuition to hear what voice you are writing in.

Becky Walsh is the author of You DO Know – Learning to act on intuition instantly (Hay House), and three more published books and five e-books. She is a sought after speaker internationally, and has appeared at the world renowned Hay House seminar ‘I can do it’.  She has a wealth of media experience having hosted her own award winning show on LBC 97.3 radio in London and a show on Hay House Radio which enjoys a peak audience of two million listeners worldwide. Becky also delivers comment and analysis in the national and trade press, as well as being a blogger for the Huffington Post. For more information, see www.beckywalsh.com

July Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

July 22, 2014

Vintage inscription made by old typewriterFreedom to Write

“There is freedom in being a writer and writing. It is fulfilling your function.

I used to think freedom meant doing whatever you want. It means knowing who you are, what you are supposed to be doing on this earth, and then simply doing it.”

Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones

Conscious Writers prioritise knowing their true nature, and then take awakened action – on the page and in the world – without procrastination.

To your conscious & creative success!

What’s new this month?

July 10, 2014

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

This month, we’ve been sharing a ramped up and original mix of conscious and creative inspiration on our newly re-launched IACCW Facebook Page.

I’ve also included some personal posts and images including one of our massive home grown strawberry harvest which seemed quite popular.

Images like this are not just lovely to look at. This one is symbolic of the creative fullness and abundance of summer which is an energy we can apply consciously to our writing. These posts always have a point!

See this, and more of what we’ve been sharing here www.facebook.com/IACCW. Please “Like” the page and join in by posting some of your conscious and creative news and views.

Conscious Writing Retreat Update

Following the huge success of our group retreat recently, it was a little disappointing to discover that the next available slot at the same venue is not until July or August next year!

While we discuss possibilities for dates, if you know of a fabulous retreat centre elsewhere in the south of England that might be suitable, do please let us know by emailing info@iaccw.com.

In the meantime, I will be offering Individually Guided Retreats again this year during August, September and October.

This is an opportunity for you to have time away from your regular commitments for one, two or three days, and work with me one-to-one on an individually designed schedule of “Guided” and “Personal” time.

Full details will be announced in the August IACCW Journal or you can email info@iaccw.com for advance information now (as there will only be a few spaces and one is already booked!)

Annual “Best of” Interview Series Audio CD Set

Each year we make the annual “Best Of” Interview Series Audio CD set – which is a FREE Benefit for FULL IACCW Members – available to everyone for purchase.

This year, we have some of my favourite interviews of all time included, and we’re offering a 50% introductory discount until Wednesday 31 July. Read more here.

Finally, I am happy to share an opportunity to be included in a new book that is being published by my good friend Linda Joy’s Inspired Living Publishing team. See the new “This May Be Of Interest” section at the end of the newsletter by clicking here.

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Conscious Completing for Creative Writers

Commitment_TickoverRedCircle_250I’ve just finished writing a big section of my book, and it feels exciting to have reached this point! There is a sense of joy and satisfaction in this kind of completion which echoes wholeness for me in a heart-warming way.

There are many more sections still to write, but I’m happy to have crossed this particular threshold of completion. In fact, I feel even more enthusiastic about continuing my Conscious Writing process now that this section is “in the bag”.

With a big project like writing a book, it’s important to celebrate the minor completions along the way. This helps to keep our momentum going until we reach the major completions such as finishing the first draft of our manuscript or completing our whole submission package ready to send to agents or publishers.

Is it Creative Resistance or a Stepping Stone?

Some people shy away from any kind of completion and begin multiple creative writing projects which all lie half finished in drawers and cupboards. Do you recognize that at all?

Sometimes unfinished work-in-progress acts like a stepping stone to ideas which are seen through to completion, and this is a valid way to develop new possibilities. However, if not finishing projects is a recurring pattern, it usually indicates some form of creative resistance at work.
