We content marketers are strategic types — but we’re creative as well, and that creative side needs nurturing.
This week, we offered tips and practices for creative self-care, so you can keep producing extraordinary work.
On Monday, Stefanie Flaxman shared five unconventional ways to meet your deadlines — and banish the “flaky creative” stereotype for good.
On Tuesday, Claire Emerson outlined 10 ways to make progress on your big projects — even when paying gigs or daily obligations seem like they’re gobbling up every second of your time.
(I’m a big fan of the second item on Claire’s list — it seems like a small thing, but it can make a big difference in how you approach those intimidating projects.)
And on Wednesday, author Karl Staib swung by to suggest a creative self-care 30-day challenge — using a practice you might not associate with professional productivity.
On the podcast, I talked about how emotion drives persuasive copy — and three possibly “embarrassing” emotions you might explore in your content and persuasive copy.
On The Writer Files, Austin Kleon joined Kelton Reid for part two of their interview about “rules for how to stay creative, focused, and true to yourself.”
(We’ll be sharing a few more thoughts from Austin next week …)
And on Unemployable, Brian Clark and Jerod Morris answered listener questions about building a sanely ambitious small business.
Take great care of your mighty creative brain this week, and let us know how you’re putting these into practice!
