Creative retirees, if you’re into writing and need a little boost to get your projects going, and keep them going, take a look at this short component of my prewriting course.
One item from the video: YouTube is just one source of online video available for prewriting. Pixabay and Pexels provide footage that can spur your imagination as well.
Here is the link to the video segment.
Creatives: I am once again deferring to the wisdom of Srini Rao, whose latest post 7 Commandments of the Unmistakable Creative delivers the message better than I can.
Those commandments are:
Reality is malleable.
Your Resources are Limited, But Your Imagination and Creativity Are Not.
Your Temporary Circumstances Don’t Have to Become Your Permanent Reality [I say, we don’t have time to allow for ‘permanent realities’.]
The Status Quo is Meant to be Challenged.
Adversity Leads to Growth. [We also don’t have time to shy away from adversity. I really need to heed this commandment.]
Only Is Better Than Best [A key theme of his first book **, Unmistakable]
What You Create for An Audience of One is Much More Likely to Reach an Audience of Millions.
