Creativity Tips: Celebrate the Team

There are weeks when I have no idea what I'm going to write about on the blog. This is not one of those weeks. I have a huge backlog of info I want to share with you, thanks to the successes and activities of CI team members -- including moi, as Miss Piggy would say.

To get me out of the way, two quick things:
  1. From the Heart is great -- wonderful stories and poems about parenting. I haven't finished reading the book, but what I've read is really solid. I'm honored to be included in the anthology. Proceeds from book sales benefit children's hospitals, so please consider this when you start your holiday shopping.*
  2. For my New York area friends, I'm speaking at the 2010 PRSA Northeast District Conference Nov. 4 -- and I'm really excited. I spoke to the group last year, and can't wait to see them again. And here's a writing lesson: They're billing me as a "conference bonus." Isn't that wonderful? They needed some way to explain my session: I'll be hosting an all-day room for creative instigation, discussion, etc. I think the "bonus" label is really fun.
OK. We're done with me. Tomorrow, gorgeous copy from Jean and a quick editing lesson. And more success from you throughout the week! Send me an email if you'd like to share an accomplishment: jan@sokoloffharness.com


*If you have already finished your holiday shopping, we can no longer be friends. Seriously. OK, not seriously, but sheeesh. You're making me look bad.

I've been loving your conference room bonus ever since you described it to me. Bonus, heck I think it's the indulgence. Next year you'll be the guilty pleasure because everyone will want to hang out in your room instead of going to the scheduled sessions.
