Mighty Ugly. It’s a creativity exercise, and also a book. In person, I help people and groups cozy up to the scary things that hold us back. The book is a handbook for vanquishing creative demons, filled with essays, interviews, quotes, resources and exercises. I lead in-person workshops, speak to groups of all sizes, and generally wave my arms around encouraging people to make stuff, even if it’s ugly (especially if it’s ugly). I also work as a freelance editor, mainly with self-publishers.
I’m a writer, editor, crafter and speaker. My new book, Make It Mighty Ugly: Exercises And Advice For Getting Creative Even When It Ain't Pretty, is available for pre-order, so that's pretty exciting if you're me (and maybe if you're you) (probably if you're you) (just saying). Here's a handy list of other things about me.
I write here about creativity, business, crafts, publishing and books.
My newsletter’s pretty cool.
I pin stuff.
