Creative Joy Teleconference and Twitter Party

\"\"* Thanks to everybody\’s tweets at the party we were able to raise $100 for the Afghan Women’s Writing Project to support women\’s rights to tell their story.

You have creativity that is bursting to get out. It’s looking to find new perspectives on old problems.

I know that I feel bottled up at times because I don’t give myself the space and time to let all the thoughts bubble to the surface. When I do attend a retreat the ideas flow like water, my energy blows the roof off of the building and I can’t even write down my ideas fast enough.

That’s why Jennifer Louden, Susannah Conway and Marianne Elliott created the Creative Joy Twitter Party for people like you. They want to help you see things from a different perspective and help you unleash that creative joy with other amazing women.

The Party is hosted by yours truly – Karl Staib of Party Biz Connect.

  5. Hi Monica, Yes, I send out an email reminder the day of the party. I’ve tried sending out reminders the day before and the day of and the I find that people prefer just the day of reminder.

  6. I’m really looking forward to the Twitter party. I feel lost and anxious much of the time, particularly when it comes to trusting myself, allowing creativity to come to light and expressing myself in general (especially in a public forum). I’m ever hopeful, though, and know that stepping out of my comfort zone is essential to moving through this ‘surviving’ period of my life.

    So grateful to have found my way here, bundle of nerves and all. :)
