Welcome to the 7-Day Creative Defense!

In this free video course, you'll be creative every day—and gain insights into how to protect and defend your precious creative time. 

 
 

DAY 1: notes and summary

1. Choose the creative project you'd like to focus on for the next 7 days. (No worries if you don't want to choose. Instead, you'll simply commit to 20 minutes of daily creative time.) 

2. Choose an accountability partner and reach out to them, letting them know you're doing the challenge and you need their help! They can use this page to sign up for the course, and you can let me know by email that they're your buddy! Here's a sample note to send them: 

Hi, Susan! 
This week I'm participating in an online course called the 7-Day Creative Defense. The course helps creative people learn to protect and defend their creative time.
One of my first tasks is to choose an accountability partner, who I can check in with throughout the week to help keep me on track. Would you be willing to be mine?! You can either do the course with me, which would be awesome, or just send me a couple of texts or emails this week to see how I'm doing. :) 
Let me know what you think! The course is free and you can sign up here if you're interested.

3. Finally, you'll complete your first timed, 20-minute creative session. Get out everything you need to work on your chosen project, set a timer for twenty minutes, and GO! 

See you tomorrow!
