What would you share of yourself with the world if you knew you could not fail? If you gave up all your excuses? If you didn't let fear get between you and the amazing YOU that is your creative voice? The secret is right inside...not really a secret at all. Being here means you're already seeking that source, already on your journey. This is the striking of a match!
A tinderbox is a collection of all the tools needed to spark a flame and that's just what every person carries inside them - a Creative Core - a little something dangerous, something with the power to bring the house down, to transform. We all have a story to tell and a unique voice & gifts with which to express that story with power and authority and authenticity. Because of that, creativity is a risky business. Telling our stories has the power to change everything. All artists are afraid of setting that crazy spark loose. Worse, we're afraid what we express won't matter or that we'll express ourselves all wrong. This is the best news! It's the gift of the Tinderbox's spark - the light that allows us to see we are all the same! We can stop waiting to be unafraid and get started sharing and creating and finding real purpose in our lives! If we live from our Creative Core we can overcome the fears and complexities of surviving life and our art will be authentic and engaging and it will truly satisfy the need to find our purpose.
After publishing my first novel, I had the pleasure of spending two years working with the founders of She Reads, a national online book club whose tagline reads: Story is the shortest distance to the human heart. Thousands of readers, myself included, have been inspired by their firm belief in the power of story. I credit Marybeth Whalen and Ariel Lawhon for so much of what I'm bringing to this workshop.
As for my own convictions, I credit 43 years of striving to live from my own creative core and discovering through life's ups and downs the transforming power of finding your voice as an artist and the transfusion of energy and joy that come with embracing your unique gifts of creativity.
