How is your novel prep coming along so far? I have a new video for you this week that touches on something I’ve never really talked about before in detail on this channel but that I feel is so helpful and supportive!

For Preptober this year, let’s talk about how to make a creativity toolbox. This is not necessarily a physical “box” so much as it is a set of tools to help you stay motivated and excited for your writing. Watch the video now on YouTube.

How To Make A Creativity Toolbox

Sorry I don’t have a full blog post for you today, but my family has just moved again to a new location, and I didn’t have time to write it along with everything else going on. I hope you did enjoy the video, though!

Let me know if this is something you’ve done for yourself in the past in terms of rewards or motivating self-care. I’d love to hear what you do to keep yourself motivated during deadlines or big pushes toward your goals.

I hope you have loved this Preptober series. Next week, we’ll talk about how to create a meal plan to help you create more time for your writing during the month of November (or anytime you’re on deadline).

If you haven’t yet signed up for my mailing list and downloaded your free Preptober planner, you can do that below. See you on the list!

Hi, I'm Sarra!

I have been self-publishing my books since 2010, and in that time, I've sold well over half a million copies of my books. I'm not a superstar or a huge bestseller, but I have built an amazing career that brings me great joy. Here at Heart Breathings, I hope to help you find that same level of success. Let's do this.
