Iâ€™m twenty-eight years old, and Iâ€™m a writer. You might think that 250,000 hours is enough time to write several novels, plays, and epic poems.
Sorry. This is my first bookâ€”fifty-nine pages, a modest start.
Itâ€™s about overcoming inertia and meeting creative goals. How appropriate.
The problem with most artists is that they donâ€™t do their art. They have knowledge and talk shop with other artists for hours. They own books about creativity and dozens of half-empty notebooks. They complain about not having enough time and feel guilty about not using their gifts, or they stop caring altogether.
I call all those unfinished art projects â€œMarthas.â€ Thatâ€™s a nice way of saying â€œthe last known living Passenger Pigeon that died in captivity and is now rotting slowly in the archives of the Smithsonian.â€ As you might have guessed, all the artists are â€œpigeon hunters.â€ The fun continues from there, and along with some more animal analogies, I share the seven ingredients for establishing a sustainable creative rhythm.
If you proactively pursue your art, you stand to gain a great deal of joy, and the world stands to gain a great deal of beauty. No one else can sing your song, and it may be just what someone needs to experience peace, hope, and freedom.
I hope youâ€™ll download Melting Chocolate Kettles: 7 Ingredients for Meeting Creative Goals and share the book with your friends. Last time I talked to my designer, oh, about five minutes ago, it was available in PDF and iPad-friendly versions. A Kindle version is coming soon.
Did I mention that itâ€™s free?
