How are you doin’ over there?

Me? In all honestly, it’s been a little up and down.

But this morning was definitely an UP moment. I got OUT of the house and went on a walk with a good friend and fellow extrovert.

For two normally positive souls, we spent (excessive) time venting about #covidlife before diving into what’s coming up for us in life and biz.

And, we both felt better. Sunshine and friends can do that.

We asked each other good questions, got some new ideas or ways to think about things, and got some exercise.

Our walk ended with several hundred really loud geese flying over us toward the large pond we’d been walking around.

Honking out their encouragement to one another, the geese all flew in V’s in the same direction with a singular goal in mind…land at the pond to rest and refuel for the next leg of their journey south.

That’s how I felt about our walk – we walked and squawked. But unlike the geese, we also got unblocked (or at least I got some massive clarity on an idea I’d had).

(Yep, I think #walksquawkunblock might need to become a hashtag.)

There’s something about connecting with other brilliant women that gives us the support, encouragement, and clarity that we just don’t get when we tackle everything alone.

Especially when it comes to working through our ideas.

Even your average goose KNOWS they can’t make it south for the winter alone. They need their team to fly in formation so they can go further. And, they can honk at each other too, to cheer each other on.

So, what, exactly is my point here?

Collaboration works for us too.

Finding clarity on our ideas and the energy to take action happens when we connect with one another.

And, it’s WAY more fun than doing it alone.

So, let’s do it together.

Since it just might be time to write that book and share your ideas with the world, I’m offering a workshop to help you develop and organize your ideas so you can actually get started writing it.

We begin on November 3.

In the Idea Seed to Start Workshop, we’ll find your starting place…crash through overwhelm, get all your ideas organized in one place that actually has a BEGINNING so you can start.

Bonus…we’ll be doing this in a small group so you can make new friends and work through ideas together.

Here are the official deets. Together, we’ll:

  • grow your ideas to find and get to your BEST ones
  • narrow down #alltheideas, so you can get clear on what it is that you actually want to do and the path forward
  • organize your ideas into a structure that allows forward movement as well as inspiration and intuitive hits to happen throughout the creative process
  • go through story and writing strategies to break the whole idea of a book down into a doable project
  • have time for feedback, Q&A, and support

And, if you’ve got questions, shoot me a DM over on Instagram. You can find me @amyisamancreative, or hit reply to this email, and I’ll get back to you.
