Writing Your Creative Self-Expression - 5 Steps to Growing Thick Skin

The Critics 

Have you ever worked diligently on a creative piece of writing, held your breath for the approval of your audience, and then got rejected? You can't really understand the word, 'deflated' unless you've been emotionally rejected or you're a writer.

Day 3 of Juicing and Intuition (Con't) - Inner Meets Outer

Inner Meets Outer

A couple of weeks ago I picked up an interesting book called, The Life and Times of a Reluctant Spy, by Larry J. Kolb. I'm not into spy novels but it stood out. It was used so it didn't cost that much. I thought it would be entertaining.

How to Increase in Intuition - 30 Days of Raw Juicing

The Rush

After returning from a week in Costa Rica, I felt energized, buzzing with pure pristine energy from life in the rainforest. When I got back home, I used the expansive energy for as long as I could. It lasted for about a week and materialized through my writing. I wrote a script through those glorious seven days.
