Introducing Courses & Book Bundles

I have been sitting on a couple ideas for quite a while and I think it’s beyond time to get going with them.

What is it?

Courses!

I have two in mind.

40 Days of Creativity Challenge
This one will start the day after Thanksgiving and go for 40 days. That will take us into January. If you look at the calendar, that’s going to be more than 40 days because we will skip Christmas and New Year’s Day. Anyone who enrolls will receive a Kindle copy of 80 Creativity Tips as part of the cost of the course. I’ll let you know more details very soon.

Journal Your Way to Creativity
This course will be more involved. The book, Journal Your Way to Creativity, is a 90-day self-guided journal to help people tap into their creativity. That’s three months. This would have weekly videos where I would talk about the prompts and some of the reasoning behind them. A Kindle copy of this will also be included in the cost. Once again, I’ll let you know more details very soon. This one would not start until sometime in January.

Book Bundles
Not exactly a course, but still a source of (possible) education/information. I will offer bundles of books, a box set, if you will, at a special price for a limited time. I will have these ready to go by the day after Thanksgiving.

This is all going with the plan to be more intentional in what I offer to you and why. It will come together in a cohesive program I call Living Your Creative Life.

Look for more details soon! Don’t want to miss anything? Consider signing up for my email list so you’ll be among the first to hear about new books, courses, and videos.

Happy Easter & Future Plans

I am determined to make a go of this blogging thing. I don’t know why I’m so sporadic with it. Once again, I am participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I feel like if I make it through an entire month of daily posting, I can then set a sustainable schedule and maintain the blog on a regular basis.

That’s the plan, anyway.

The end of 2017 was…difficult. I developed a double ear infection that left me deaf for most of December. That was challenging. For those who don’t know, I am legally blind, so I rely on my hearing a lot. All my life, I have been able to hear very well. To have problems hearing was a trial I did not want. I learned a lot from that experience. I used to think I would rather lose my hearing than my eyesight. I know now that is not true.

On Christmas morning, I was sitting in the living room. My Dad had the TV on a channel that was playing Christmas music. After a while, I realized I could hear it. I was kind of singing along with it. Mom and Dad had since gone to different parts of the house, so I went to where Mom was.

“Is the TV blaring?” I asked.

She nodded.

“I thought it had to be because I could hear it.”

That was pretty much the only Christmas music I heard until after New Year’s Day. I found a Christmas station on iHeart Radio and listened to it for a few hours.

It’s April and I still want a do-over on Christmas.

I wish I could say the ear saga is over, but it’s not. Later this month, if everything is cleared up, I will have a hearing test to see what lasting damage there might be.

But my absence from the blog isn’t filled with only bad news. I’ve been writing. Quite a lot. And I have a new book out, Journal Your Way to Creativity. It’s available in print and on Kindle. I will tell you more about that tomorrow, but I had to mention it today.

Something else I will be talking about soon is the writer’s notebook/workbook I’ve started using. I need something that will help me to keep track of what I’m doing, what I want to do, and what’s next. I think this will do that.

In the meantime, I’m debating on which project to do next. It will either be finishing a novel or re-releasing my first book that is out of print. Decisions, decisions.

That’s it for now. This is actually posting a lot later than I had intended, so instead of wishing you a happy Easter, I will just say I hope you had a happy Easter.

Happy creating.
