The Sunday Circle is the weekly check-in where I ask the creative-types who follow this blog to weigh in about their goals, inspirations, and challenges for the coming week. The logic behind it can be found here. Want to be involved? It’s easy – just answer three questions in the comments or on your own blog (with a link in the comments here, so that everyone can find them).
After that, throw some thoughts around about other people’s projects, ask questions if you’re so inclined. Be supportive above all.
Then show up again next Sunday when the circle updates next, letting us know how you did on your weekly project and what you’ve got coming down the pipe in the coming week (if you’d like to part of the circle, without subscribing to the rest of the blog, you can sign-up for reminders via email here).
What am I working on this week?
Another big week of teaching (including one class I’d mistakenly included in last week). The biggest job, at present, is writing two hours of content for the workshop I’m teaching on Thursday night.
What’s inspiring me this week?
I saw the closing night of Cassandra and the Boy Doll at the Anywhere Festival here in Brisbane. It was a short play about identity and the trans experience, and while I quibbled with a lot of the directorial choices, there were some genuinely great bits. And even when I disagreed with the directorial choices, it was useful to start figuring out why and have a conversation about it.
What part of my project an I avoiding?
Pretty much everything. I have not written things that are not workshop materials in a week and it is making me extraordinarily grumpy, so at the very least I need to sit down and inch forward on one project or another.
And I really need to replace my phone, which is now on its last legs and refuses to include letters from the right-hand edge of the on-screen keyboard right as my contract ends, but I can’t bring myself to go through the effort of researching options before re-contracting.
