Episode 94: How to Capture Your Ideas

In Episode 92 I did some fun exploring of what work and living and writing gets to look like. Hopefully that episode supported you in realizing you are basically always writing. So, in today’s episode, I offer some practical steps on how to capture your continuously creative self. These are the very tricks and tools our clients use to help them go from what feels like a slew of random ideas to beautiful published books!

Here are the highlights

  • Work with yourself: you are not suddenly going to develop this strict habit of writing everyday at 5am if you aren’t a morning person and have never written consistently before. Try different things and see what works for you. Be consistently flexible!
  • Push your beliefs on what counts as writing: writing doesn’t always have to involve pen and paper or a computer. Feel into the moments when ideas are running through you and start to test the best ways to capture those ideas for yourself
  • Tried and true practical tools our clients use to get their thoughts down: Voxer,, writing sprints, a community of support, and more

As always, leave us a review so that more people see the podcast and get the writing support they need.
