Thanks a ton Teresa…
Teresa, thanks! These were clear, focused points that will move my writing journey forward!
I’m so glad you are finding the videos helpful and inspiring! Please let me know about your successes. You all inspire me as well!
Great information! Thanks!
Great video…..lots of information to digest..Thanks alot
You are so welcome. Glad it helped! There are several other videos that you may find helpful as well. Best of luck!
Thank you Teresa, Jon, and the rest of the CBI team for this thoughtful and goosebump enducing video. I found a lot of the points Teresa touched on very useful and plan to actively apply them to my writing and creative habits. One thing that I've found has helped me immensely in certain projects is a little bit of time away from piece of work. It was difficult initially for me to allow myself leisure time because, frankly, I always wanted to work on the book or next project. But when I started allotting time to spend with friends, family, exercise and enjoy my other hobbies, I felt my abilities grow almost instantaneously.
Kyle, thank you for your very kind comments. I'm thrilled you liked the video and hope it continues to inspire. I'm also glad you have already learned something that takes many writers years to learn . . . that in order to be good writers, we can't just hunker down in our offices, we have to take time away from the work to live and experience and learn. We have to feed our souls in order to feed our creativity.
Thank you for sharing your idea – I was about to give up, however ,after watching your video, I feel inspired to continue. Thank you, once again. Esther, London
Esther, I’m so glad you are feeling freshly inspired. Don’t give up. Writing is an up and down journey, but it’s so worth it.
