There is nothing like waking up to a eureka moment and realizing you have been going at it all wrong. I host a website I usually don't mention at WA, except for my cookie blog because a lot of content is provided by my clients. But it's still my ezine, blog, whatever you want to call it. Part of it is a community events column and that is how I get to my point. Lots of people were obviously searching for this particular event because I suddenly had over 250 people hit my site at once. That's wh
Going though Facebook posts quickly this morning I came across a video of David Bowie. I played it over and over it was so on point. Simply said, he described what he thought of the role of each artist. Never make what you do about other people. Don't play to the gallery. That you need to fulfill your own expectations not other people's. He also suggested that we are at our most creative when we feel not quite safe,out of our depth.

It's been an amazing few weeks since I started working my way through the WA courses. Some of the things taught I was already doing on my website. Others, lots of them, I had not even heard about. I think it is like starting anything, you learn what you need just to get something started but you don't have a complete understanding of the process. That's how I feel WA is for me. But I am connecting the dots. For example, authorship. I had no idea about that, had never heard of it. Just one of th
