What do you do when the creative magic you need JUST ISN’T HAPPENING?! As writers and creators we wish creativity and flow were like a faucet–you turn it on when you need it.
But that’s not the reality.
Sometimes, we have to sit down at our keyboard and create when we just don’t feel like it.
Actors aren’t much different–when it’s time to step in front of the camera and give the performance of a lifetime, they don’t have the luxury of putting it off. Action means ACTION!
So, when I started thinking of who to bring on the Bound + Determined podcast to talk about creative flow, it was a no-brainer to bring on my pal and accomplished actress and performer, Wendy Braun.
You may recognize Wendy for her recent hilarious portrayal of the uptight but well-intentioned Kathy, on four seasons of the Netflix hit comedy series, Atypical…or maybe even from This Is Us…or Grey’s Anatomy! With over 80 TV + Film credits and over 100 commercials, Wendy has combined decades of invaluable professional experience with her passion for inspiring others.
On top of all this she’s the CEO + founder of ActorInspiration.com, a resource that has been providing practical and empowering tools to help creatives transform their lives and careers for over a decade. Her talent and wisdom helps thousands overcome obstacles and create success on their own terms.
In this episode we talk:
- Bringing your full self to your creative pursuits
- Wendy’s tips for helping creativity turn on and flow
- Managing emotions that come up as a creative
- Pairing creativity with spirituality
- What authors can do to prepare for more visibility + feedback
- How to handle the unknown as a creative
- Balancing creative pursuits and family/work/responsibility
Don’t miss this honest, real and tip-packed episode that you’ll want to keep in your back pocket everytime you sit down to the keyboard.
