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?
Got my PhD application in early, so this week has been freed up for out-and-out writing. My current goals: finish the crocodile story rewrite, write fourteen pages in the Float notebook, and try not to keel over in a pile after spending a weekend in Melbourne.
What’s inspiring me this week?
My Melbourne trip has been spent talking to various friends who work in creative business about their recent projects, business plans, and general creative life. It’s been enormously illuminating and its great to see what other people have been working on, so right now I am itching to sit down and get some writing finished.
Not the most exciting inspiration, but after doing the PhD application it’s amazing when I can carry on a coherent conversation.
What part of my project an I avoiding?
I let writing slide off the agenda in the name of getting the application done as early as possible, but it also taught me exactly how slack I’ve been about keeping track of all the things I’ve written over the years. There’s a handful of stories that really should be added to the list in the main menu here, and it would make sense to set up a couple of systems that make it easier to just update as new things come along.
