Established Author Forum: Cultivating a Creative Life



Amie Kaufman




This session is an interactive guide to cultivating a creative life that’s deliberate, joyful and sustainable. From getting started, to keeping going, to finishing projects and letting go, we’ll talk about what success looks like for you. We’ll talk about dealing with doubt and comparison, and range from time management to motivation to procrastination to community and filling the well. Every writer is different, and every writer’s life is different. How would you like to live yours?
