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.

Conference Session Handouts

As promised, here are the two handouts I provided during my session at the Ozark Creative Writers’ conference earlier this month.

The first includes a list of places you can get your business cards, brochures, etc. The second is an article listing seven networking opportunities for freelancers.

There’s a bonus for you, too.

I had typed the real-world applications section of the session. I’ve converted that to a PDF as well and loaded that for you here also.

(Yes, there is a typo in the title of the 7 Networking Opportunities for Writers. It’s only in the link and would result in a broken link if I were to fix it now.)

I hope you can get some benefit from them. Feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email if you have any questions. My email address is in both the Networking handout and networking speech.

Welcome to My World

n110046421290_9910My newsletter is ready to go!I I’m not going to send it until tomorrow evening, though. I have included an introduction section, networking & self-promotion tips, a calendar of events, links to my books, and how to find me online.

It’s longer than it sounds. And because of that, I feel like it’s ready to go. I’ve proofed it several times over and had a couple friends proof it as well.

I found the code for the signup form, so you could fill that out. Or, if you prefer, you can send me an email and I will add you to the list.

I’m not going to spam you or send you a lot of newsletters. We would both get tired of that. Instead, this is meant to be a monthly newsletter. In the next one, I’ll include highlights from this month, including speaking at the Ozark Creative Writers’ conference next weekend.

What do you think? Want to at least get the first newsletter? Here’s the signup form:

Well, Hello There

n110046421290_9910I accidentally have a fresh, new blog. How did this happen?

I’m not exactly sure. I only know that it has to do with the update I did to my website last week. I deleted my email then, too, but I got that fixed relatively easily and quickly. I didn’t realize I had done the same thing to my blog until today.

This actually works out well. I wasn’t sure what to do with my blog or where I wanted to go with it. After a conference this past weekend, I have some better idea of what I want to do.

And so it begins.
