It’s a pretty great feeling to realize you really are doing what you love.
Writerly Kits is happening! My new venture is up and running and I could not be more delighted by all that it is.
ONE; everything I love to do, and am decent at, gets to go in these lovely boxes. It’s like an event in a box that let’s others find their own answers to their best way of getting to what they love – while having fun!
And these are things I love:
- Theme planning,
- creating the discovery content from the coaching and Novel Minds process,
- creating the graphics, the art… and sometimes even the pottery;
- collaborating with authors I love
- collaborating with others to include very cool items that support writers;
- testing coffees that may pass the test and end up in the boxes;
- stay true to my passion for organic products, less waste, a healthier earth, supporting artisans and companies in line with my values.
- and then.. THEN… building a community that supports each other!
These are all things that scream “Janet, You LOVE this!”
TWO: People who might not otherwise access coaching, (because it is hard for a writer to justify the cost of coaching) will find this accessible, affordable and do-able.
Writerly Kits is curated especially for writers. Dear to my heart. I know the struggles. But, what if you are not a writer? I suspect I’ll venture into other areas for other creative folks down the road.
If you are here, following this blog, you know I’m pretty passionate about each of us getting to whatever realm of creativity reveals our magic. More writers writing. More arters arting. More actors acting. More musicians making more music. More inventers inventing. More philosphers philosophizing.
I love the theme of the first box. It just seems a perfect place to start, given my history! Actual contents are a secret, because the gift- like quality of a subscription box is half the fun! The theme?
Because, guess what? You are not a train going from A to B on the same track every other train is on. You are a writer. You are far more ship-like. Treasures, techniques, cool processes to find your way to chart your course and navigate your writerly life. Fun and Imaginative
And THREE: Oh my. People are subscribing! The learning curve of finding nice ways to share this new project has been…. well, kind of like climbing a mast. Not much curve, I suppose. Straight up. I don’t want to play the same old same old rhetoric of sales that is out there in social media. You are too smart for that, anyway. I just want to share what this is and hope people care. And they do care. And I am feeling very happy.
It’s not always easy to do what we love way more often. But this is working for me. I wish for you more of what you love, too.
