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?
The two projects occupying my attention for the next seven days will be providing feedback on a friend’s novel and writing the presentation that I’ll be taking to Gladstone on Thursday, talking about blogging and author platforms.
What’s inspiring me this week?
The Adelaide Fringe festival was utterly fantastic, even with the bad luck of coming down with the flu halfway through the trip. By far the most inspiring shows of the week were Puddles Pity Party, a cabaret featuring a singing clown who is silent outside of his songs. Watching hi hold the audiences attention without saying a word, building up to each song, was fascinating.
The other inspiring show was Jennifer Kingwell’s The Lotus Eaters – brilliant cabaret featuring covers and new songs, using the Odysseyy as a framework to hold things together. Easily the best show of the bits of the Fringe I saw, and it continues Adelaide great run of venues.
What part of my project an I avoiding?
Technically, I’m still on holidays at this point, and the coming week is basically a mess of travel and commitments. I’ve been seriously putting off doing anything, amid the chaos.
