The Transformative Value of a Conscious and Creative Reboot

March 8, 2016

fire-1021224_640The last year has been a massive reality check for me with regard to the sheer volume of time, energy and effort that is required to see a book through from manuscript completion to successful publication.

Looking back it feels like the conscious writing process to craft the body of work that became my book was the easy part, although it didn’t always feel like that at the time!

Fortunately, my daily practice of yoga, meditation and more largely enabled me to remain present to what ‘is’ through the roller coaster ride of the publishing process. It was a high priority for me to be connected to inner stillness amidst the array of outer activities, all of which involved absolute deadlines.

Yet as the months passed, the more fatigued I felt, the harder it became to maintain the fullness of my balanced perspective. Finally, the moment came when all the major projects were completed, the launch momentum settled and I was able to stop for more than a brief interlude.

Taking time off to recharge was an extremely welcome immersion in the bliss of stillness, silence, space and the restorative energy of the natural world. I subsequently felt prompted to write a short piece to share my experience and encourage you to remember the importance of what I lovingly call a conscious and creative reboot.

The Value of a Conscious & Creative Reboot

October 30, 2015

lake-896197_300The last 7 months have been a massive reality check for me with regard to the sheer volume of time, energy and work that is required to see a book through from manuscript completion to successful publication!

For most of that time, my daily practice of yoga, meditation and more has enabled me to be present to what ‘is’ and connected to inner stillness amidst the array of outer activities, all of which involved absolute deadlines.

Yet the more fatigued I felt, the harder it became to maintain the fullness of my balanced perspective; until finally, the moment came when all the major projects were completed and I was able to stop.

Taking a week off to recharge was a timely immersion in the bliss of stillness, silence and space, and subsequently prompted me to write a short piece to share my experience and encourage you to remember the importance of what I lovingly call a conscious and creative reboot!

Conscious Completing for Creative Writers

July 10, 2014

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.

7 Timeless Tips for Conscious Writing Success

January 13, 2014

A couple of years ago I wrote an article on how to create a New Year strategy for success and inject a fresh burst of energy into your plans for writing and publishing your book.

When I reviewed it in preparation to share something of real value with you to herald the start of 2014, it struck me how the tips are not just related to success at the start of the year.

The timeless nature of the seven suggestions inspired me to share them with you one more time alongside one additional recommendation. That is to take advantage of the fresh wave of energy and enhanced sense of creative possibility which is a factor of the New Year.

So if you’re ready to follow through on your impulse to write what you are here to write in 2014, bring these tips to life by taking action within the next seven days. Then keep the momentum going by connecting with other Conscious Writers who are doing the same. Enjoy!

Mind Your Mindset for Successful Authorship

November 12, 2012

Head&HeartBeing aware of your mindset and how it either helps or hinders your progress as a writer is fundamental to your success as an author.

Many people understand a mindset to be “a collection of thought processes which are characteristic to an individual or a group” (Roget’s II: The New Thesaurus).

However, there is an important ingredient missing from this definition.

Mindset is not just about your thoughts; it is also about your emotions. What you think is crucial but what you feel is even more significant when it comes to writing a book for publication, and indeed with everything you do in life.

Thought and emotion are an immensely powerful combination which can either work for, or against, what you want to achieve with your writing.

7 Tips for Creating Your New Year Writing Success Strategy

January 9, 2012

2012SparklingGoldThe New Year is a fabulous time to inject a fresh burst of energy into your plans for writing your book for publication.

So here are 7 tips to help you have your best writing year yet:

1. Identify what’s really important to you about your writing. So many people today live in the fast lane. As a result, it is easy to lose sight of what really matters.

With your writing, being consciously connected to what is truly important enables you to give yourself permission to prioritise your writing time. This means that you will get your writing done and feel more creatively satisfied as a result.

So start this year by taking time to re-connect to the source of your inspiration to write. Then write about that in your journal to refer back to in the coming months.

2. Clarify your vision. With that connection in place to keep you grounded, the next step is to sharpen your focus on where you are heading. Being clear about your vision will inspire and motivate you to maintain your progress.

One of the most powerful ways of bringing your vision to life is to create a Vision Board. This involves making a collage of images to represent yourself as an author and what you want to achieve with your writing.

If you have already made one, the turn of the year is a wonderful opportunity to add new images which feel appropriate for this year.
