Embracing Imperfection (1)

I just finished writing (on my other blog) a rather long post Embracing Imperfection – Getting stressed or getting things done? about my Small Product Lab experience.

So for today I just want to give a short update: All went well, eventually, and on time – except for the fact that only now, more than a week later, I’m still catching up with writing about it…

My Small Product (the original idea was to write a small 20plus-page eBook) Five Steps to Getting Started with Word Art stubbornly resisted all cutting and grew into a full-fledged set of Guidebook, Workbook and Templates book, with over 70 pages. You can imagine that I had to cut the time from other tasks.

Anyway, it’s done and available, and in the meantime I sent a one-page wordart printable to my newsletter subscribers (who get a small freebie three times a month). Here it is – free for you, too:

Enjoy, and have a great day!

Creativity Exercise: What Can You Do With…

A little exercise in creativity – be you a writer or not:

What can you do with…a pencil?

Write down – as fast as you can – ten different uses for a pencil.

When you’re done, click on the pencil below. By clicking on or hovering over the image before you’ve written your own list you are cheating – on yourself, not on me 😈

My guess is that (unless your name is Lisa) this use will not be on your list 😉

Hope you have fun!
