Resources for Artists #1

Hey there friends, I wanted to share a recap of some of the awesome resources that I've discovered recently. Enjoy!

Writing

Don't miss this interview with writing coach Kate K. McCarthy. We talk about callings, creative process and what to do when you hit a wall. Kate also shares some great advice for non-writers who want to find their voice. A couple of weeks ago I stated Janelle Hardy's memoir class: Personal Mythmaking. The writing prompts are fantastic and the words are flowing effortlessly. Janelle offers all kinds of workshops about creative process and getting unstuck.

Systems

I've been thinking a lot about systems for work and life lately. The book Work Clean is about using the The French culinary concept "mise en place" which means "putting in place" and applying it to work outside of the kitchen. I finally started using Asana, a free online project management program. This post by Leo Babauta of zen habits does a great job of outlining how systems can bring simplicity and ease into the everyday. 

Business

Sarah Von Bargen from the lifestyle blog Yes and Yes offers free mini website reviews. I sent her my url and she responded right away with 3 super easy, actionable things I could do right away to improve my online presence. Another awesome freebie is Caitlin L. Horton's Free 30 Day Focused Brand Challenge.
