Gettin' it Done

Today, Seth Godin writes:

"Just imagine how much you'd get done

...if you stopped actively sabotaging your own work.

We must be talented, powerful and resilient creatures indeed given how much we manage to produce despite the constant undercutting, ridicule and needless censorship we aim at ourselves."

Seth, I hear you... this has been on my mind a lot lately. I sabotage my own work by not starting early enough, doubting my ability to be successful or innovate, think about my past mistakes (missed edits, unsuccessful marketing campaigns, typos, etc.) more than the things I've brought to the table that helped move things forward.

Time to get to it and get stuff done.

D-U-N, done!

Lockie teaching feature writing

Blogger lockie said...

Hi all!

I've not written any news for some time, as I've been mostly publishing things that are not much fun. (example: I'm freelancing for the real estate section of all things).
However, good news in the form of a new course I'm teaching at Warren Wilson College here in sunny Swannanoa. I currently teach "Intro to the Media" a hybrid class where first part of the semester is similar to our own WP687 class, and last half of semester is devoted to copyediting and public relations. I've been wanting to teach a features workshop for some time, and I pitched it hard this semester and it landed! I teach "feature writing" this Spring here at Warren Wilson and am framing it as a workshop. It will include environmental journalism, travel pieces, humor pieces, profiles and more. Yay!
Best to all.

Monkey Business

I've got an essay about being bitten by a monkey in Thailand that's now live at The Smart Set. Lesson learned: don't pet monkeys, no matter how cute...

I started a blog too about two months ago. It's called "Vegan Poet in the Kitchen," combining poetry and vegan cooking and delightful mishaps. Did I already make a note of this?

Another new blog

Hi All:

I've started a new blog about poetry and being a poet and would love some feedback. My first two posts are up and I have one follower named Joe. Please follow the blog if you like it, and comment on anything you like or hate.
