New Series: Content Creator’s Toolbox
No, I’m not talking about allergies or spring cleaning or even swimsuit shopping.
I’m talking about that time of year when the Muse, in all her kaleidoscopic, gauzy-scarf-clad glory, begins her annual tantrum.
And man, is she loud: “Play with me, play with me! Create something! Write another screenplay! Paint pottery! Doodle on your office walls! Learn how to tapdance! Compose a sonata! Now, Parker, NOWWWW!”
All the while bouncing up and down on my eyeballs, flailing around just enough to completely obscure my to-do list.
For some reason, this exchange always occurs in the first few weeks of springtime, as if those extra few degrees on the thermometer kick off a chain reaction that incites creativity genes into action.
Of course, I’m free to ignore all this … but not if I ever hope to get anything done ever again.
So this year, I forced La Muse to make nice with the business side of the house and created something new that actually serves a purpose: a blog post series dedicated to creativity.
Because if you’re one of those content creators who are slogging away every day to crank out blog posts, e-newsletters, video scripts, podcasts, and other gems of genius content, you need to be creative.
Which is all well and good when things are just starting out and everybody’s shiny and happy … and then there are those days (and sometimes, nights) months later, when you find yourself staring at a blank screen until your eyeballs start to bleed.
So for you, Mr. or Ms. Valiant Content Creator [cue “Bud Light Real Men of Genius” theme], I’m creating the Content Creator’s Toolbox, a monthly series dedicated to helping you keep your axe sharp. And your Muse happy. And your bank account full.
We’ll be kicking off the series in next week’s Tuesday post, so if you have any nagging creativity-related questions that you’re just dying to get answered, leave us a note in the Comments—we’d love to hear from you!
