Tell me if any of these sound familiar:
“I just wish I had the time — then I’d do my creative thing.”
“I want to… but I don’t have the talent. I’m not creative..”
“My stuff just isn’t good enough.”
“How can I justify spending time creating, when there are so many really important things I have to get done?”
“I want to create so badly, so why do I always end up procrastinating?”
“I’m a very creative person but unable to find a way to express myself.”
“I have lots of huge, long term projects started up… but never finished…”
When you have a supportive community and effective tools to manage fear, resistance and procrastination, then a consistent, sustainable creative practice flows naturally and becomes a joyful part of your life.
You experience more joy in the creative process, you become more prolific, and the transformation from someone who “can’t” to someone who not only can but does, ripples out to every aspect of your life.
Your days just go better.
You’re more resilient and better able to deal with frustrations in life.
You’re less resentful of things that annoy you.
You’re just plain more fun to be with — at work, at home, everywhere!
Wouldn’t you like that in your own life?
That's exactly what this group is all about!
If you're looking for:
• a consistent, sustainable, nourishing creative practice
• more prolific output
• the ability to identify and neutralize pockets of resistance to your creativity, and to forge ahead despite any fears
• an increased belief in yourself
• greater energy and a renewed excitement for life
• the feeling of belonging in a warm, friendly artistic community
• more playfulness, more fun!
Then this group is for you!
About the Organizer, Melissa Dinwiddie:
Artist and creativity instigator, I'm on a mission to empower people to follow their creative callings. I've taught calligraphy and book arts around around the country since 1997, and in 2010, I turned my focus online, running workshops and mentorship groups via web and telephone for people ready to stop just dreaming, and start doing.
The internet is great — I have an online community of creatives from all over the world (my Creative Ignition Club), whom I'd never have met without it, and I absolutely adore teaching online. But after co-teaching an in-person, week-long creativity workshop in Istanbul last October, I realized how much I missed teaching live and in-person, and how much I longed for a local community that could meet face-to-face in the same room. So here I am on Meetup!
If you long to live a big, bold, creative life, come join me!
