Ready, Set, Write From Your Soul Toolbox
A few notes before you get started…
- Actually click on the link, download, and save to your computer. Don’t wait. 🙂
- I really recommend printing it out… yes, I know it’s 100 pages, but I find I use my Toolbox more with the printed version than the electronic version. At the very least, print out a few worksheets that look appealing to you… see where your energy wants to take you.
- Browse through a few pages. See where you are drawn to read – and do!
- Know that you don’t have to read the whole thing right now. How it’s really going to serve you best is use it… and that may mean perusing a page or two here and there.
- Listen to the audios at your leisure. There is great content, coaching, and fascinating insights into how others use these luscious strategies.
Just click on the image to the left or download link below, save to your computer, and you’re off!
Ready, Set, Write From Your Soul Toolbox
In-depth, rich audios from the five-week live class
These audios come from the live, five-week class I taught on Ready, Set, Write. You have five audios: all five sessions of the class. I taught the live class several times, and I chose the best session audio from the various times I taught it. So, you’ll hear different folks in different audios. 🙂
We talk about homework in these classes, but don’t worry… I won’t assign you homework out of the blue. 🙂 However, you will hear some of the students’ experiences with their strategies, which might give you some great insight into how to use these rich tools in the Toolbox.
- The writing process, beyond the Roman numeral outline and rough draft you might have been taught in school
- Differences between left brain and right brain
- The seven multiple intelligences (basically, how you process the world) explained in detail – and how you perhaps might process the world
- What these multiple intelligences have to do with writing
- Outside assessments (NOT endorsed by Howard Gardener or other Multiple Intelligence experts):
- By the way, at the end of the audio, the two words I mention that are in no way related are…. peace and broccoli
- Real world application of the seven multiple intelligences
- Differences between creative energy and “doing” energy
- The necessity of space and quiet time
- Committing to creativity
- Creativity and where, when, and how it happens
- You get to experience the real-time exercises we did with music. This is a definite no-miss! (Whether you think you are musical/rhythmic, or if you think music does or does not inspire creativity, you might be very surprised at what you find in this audio!)
- The importance of margin
- Following your energy
- Being kind to yourself
- The power of putting two things together and creating relationships (the Molecular Thinking exercise)
- A real-time exercise of putting two words together and the brainstorming that results
- The writing process, and the huge part prewriting (the creating side) plays in the writing process
- The importance of playfulness, space, exploration
- Purpose, audience, what your audience knows, what your audience needs to know, and what they want to know
- Benefits of spending more time on the prewriting stage
- How you know when it’s time to move from prewriting and creating to writing
- Focusing on one project at a time
BONUS: 10 Steps to Get That Book Written Bonus Audio
In case your creative project is to write a book, then you might find this bonus audio helpful. It’s from a special workshop I did with the International Association of Solopreneurs. In this workshop, we go over strategies to get writing in motion as well as share some of the challenges all writers face – and what to do about them. The recording is about 62 minutes long, and you can start listening right now.
To access your recording, click here. You can also download for listening at your convenience–whenever you need a little boost to get started writing.
For quick shot in the arm right now, here are 5 Tips to Start Writing That Book Today:
1. Decide you’re going to do it. Now. Not tomorrow, not next month. The decision is made now.
2. Schedule time. Time just doesn’t appear magically. “Oh, look what I found! Extra time. Let me go work on book.” Nope. Work on it every day, or at least five days a week. We all know about habits. After tonight/today’s call, schedule time. Really busy for the next few days (or months or years)? Schedule 15 minutes tomorrow. And 15 minutes the next day. Next week, schedule 30 minutes a day.
3. Tell people you’re writing a book. Nothing like putting it out there in words to make you own up. You wouldn’t believe the power in someone asking, “So, how’s that book coming along?”
4. Make small goals. It might be too much to have as a goal that you’ll have the book finished by the end of the year. But what about 300 words a day? How about two pages a day? That’s much more manageable than “finish an entire book by the end of the year.”
5. Create a support system. Find a writing group. Tell your family that you’re writing and that they need to respect that. Writing is important to you, and they need to see that it’s important. No interruptions. Get a friend to take the kids so that you have all of Saturday afternoon to write.
