Creative Call

Your Creative Call… Are you listening?

Your creative self is calling—but you’re just coming up for air after Thanksgiving, and Christmas is hard on your heels. How can you possibly listen?

What’s Keeping You From Your Creative Call


It’s true—your calendar is full of holiday-related chores and social gatherings. Busy, busy, busy. Serious whirlwind.

However, Fall tends to pull you within—where, when you listen deeply, your creative self is calling. Only you know where it is calling you.


Not listening is easy, most of us find ways not to. Holiday busyness can serve as a very valid distraction. “I can’t take the time to create right now, I’ve got to….”

Yes. I get it.

Last month I committed to a deep dive into a blogging course, which is feeding both my mind and my creative self. I’m learning lots.

One of the things I’ve been shown is a social media platform called “,” a place designed for writers to publish their stuff and get read by many eyes (in time, with strategy, if you are good/unique/hitting the mark.) I know some of you are avidly writing—if that’s you, check it out. It may be a good place to experiment.

I’m reading some really great posts as I study. Here’s one I’d like you to read. It reminds us of how important it is to follow our creative call, and how what we’ve been told about the “starving artist” is incorrect.


Meet Jeff Goins, successful and popular blogger and his article:

“The 12 New Rules to Become Radically Successful as an Artist.”


Coach’s Challenge:

Take some time this week to tune in deep within and hear your creative calling (remember, it can be simple, and may not look like what you think of as “creativity.”) Use the wisdom Jeff Goins brings—give yourself LOTS of permission to follow that inner voice. It’s important. I promise, your holiday list will get done!
