Crowdsourcing Mornings: Go Creative! Planning Program For Authors & Poets

Welcome to the Crowdsourcing Mornings segment!  Every weekday morning, Geek Alabama talks about and features one crowdsourcing project from crowdsourcing sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and others.  The hope with Crowdsourcing Mornings is to feature and help a project be successful and reach its fundraising goal.  Please enjoy today’s featured project!

Hello! I’m Orna Ross, indie novelist and poet, and founder-director of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi). As somebody who writes and publishes fiction, poetry, and nonfiction books, as well as runs a busy non-profit, the question I get asked most often about my work is: “How do you do so much?” My answer is: creative planning.

That’s what I want to share with you through this Kickstarter: a unique creative planning system for authors, based on my book Creative Self-Publishing, on my years as a university teacher of creative and imaginative practice, but mostly on my experience as an indie author.

For a long time, this was just the system I use myself but in recent times I’ve been sharing it with a select band of authors. Now, with your help, I’d like to take it to as many authors as possible.

What if you could continually expand your creative output, without stress or overwhelm? What if you could attract droves of engaged fans, and increase your income and influence as an author—weekly, monthly, yearly—all the while deepening your sense of creative mission, passion, and purpose? What if you could integrate your creative work into a week full of creative rest and play, joy and adventure.

Guess what? With creative planning, you can.

If you’re struggling to finish your book, if you have no idea how to market your books and build your author platform, if you want to reach more readers… Or if you’re an author who’s doing well and is now ready to level up… Or if you simply want to regain the creative excitement and joy you once felt in your work, I want to introduce you to the Go Creative! Planning Program for Authors and Poets.

This program is my way of offering more personal attention to authors than is possible through the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi). It’s unique, it’s devised especially for writers, and it’s all about containing and arranging life so that it delivers ever-expanding productivity, profits and pleasure, in a context of peace, order, and creative flow.
