Episode 131 – Making promises to your creative self

During this episode, Lucinda and Mariëlle (reluctantly) discuss the promises they would like to make to their creative selves.

Here’s what came up during the episode:

  • The difference between promises that feel more ‘meta’ and those that are more practical
  • That making promises to yourself is a very personal trajectory: what Mariëlle decided to promise her creative self is something Lucinda has already mastered, and vice versa
  • Lucinda promises to show up for her creative self
  • Mariëlle promises to show up for the physical body that is her creative self’s current home

Mariëlle’s current Kickstarter runs until the 21st of March, and you can check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mswordsmith/listentoyourheart?ref=35eav2

What is Diving into Writing?

Diving into Writing is a podcast, brought to you by two indie authors, where we discuss best practices to create a sustainable writing career and encourage fellow writers to listen to what their hearts and souls want them to create.

Who is Diving into Writing for?

Any writer who seeks to honour their creative impulses. We are here to make you feel less alone on this journey and inspire you to stay true to yourself in your life and your creative work.

What are our promises to you?

In sharing our creative experiences with you openly and honestly, we aim to create a safe space where you can be honest about your creative dreams and desires.

Why listen to us?

We look beyond the surface of our writing practice. By diving deeply and reflecting on our own creative struggles and obstacles, we broach topics only some in the writing community are willing or ready to have.

Episode 130 – How to show up for your creative self

During this episode, Lucinda and Mariëlle talk about whether or not they’re showing up for their creative selves right now, and, if not, how they can start doing that more

Here’s what came up during the episode:

  • Lucinda confesses she’s not been showing up for her creative self she’d like to for quite some time now
  • Mariëlle, on the other hand, feels like she’s been showing up more for her creative self now than she’s ever done before
  • Hearing Mariëlle talk about losing yourself in your writing, Lucinda remembered what that felt like, and it made her determined to keep setting that intention to write every day for herself 
  • How important it is to know for yourself just how much pressure is ideal for you to keep moving forwards

Mariëlle next Kickstarter goes live on 5 March, and you can follow it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mswordsmith/listentoyourheart?ref=35eav2
