Stoking the Flame, 5 Days of Fire

Part 3 of reflections on Danielle LaPorte’s recent blog post titled “5 Lessons I Burned into My Soul While Creating The Fire Starter Sessions.”

The Third Lesson:

fss5x“Begin with the end in mind”

What do you want from your creativity? In terms of writing, do you want to be a best selling author? Or do you want to write simply as a hobby? Do you want to undertake traditional publishing? Or independent?

Like Danielle, I chose my path because I wanted total creative freedom. Whether that applied to my story, my cover, my title or my characters. I had spent too many years compromising my creative spirit for the sake of other people’s vision.  When I turned my focus to writing books, I was determined not to make this same mistake.

It’s very important to me to grow my stories from seed to fruition without sacrificing creatively. That’s what I want for my writing. For my career. For my life.

So be clear about your vision, your values, your goals. Hold tight to them, for there is freedom there.
