Techniques of a Professional Creative – intro

I developed the presentation Techniques of a Professional Creative, which I’ve given to several writing groups and at a recent writing conference, because I was feeling stalled in my momentum as a writer.  I wanted to learn techniques to become more focused and to take my writing to a higher level. As I studied I came to realize I wasn’t the only professional creative to be feeling this way and the desire to share what I was learning grew. In order to reach more people I’m sharing these ideas in a series of blog posts.  I use the turn writer and writing but these ideas are applicable to any creative endeavor – entrepreneur, musician, artist, etc… Feel free to substitute your personal creative work for the title writer.

Never sacrifice what you want the MOST,

for what you want the most

at that moment.
