Cynthia Morris: A Coach for Creatives on Writing—And Finishing!— Your World-Changing Book (#16)

This Epic Life

Have you ever wanted to write a book? Do you just know there’s one, maybe more books floating around inside of you? What would publishing your book represent for you, your ideas, and your creativity? So far in my entrepreneurial journey, I’ve found writing to be THE core creative practice in designing and running my business. When we’re not writing marketing copy, we’re writing proposals, talks, or contracts. Cynthia Morris has coached so many creative people over the last 20 years to get back to the hard, focused work of finishing. What I love about Cynthia’s journey is that she has also practiced everything she coaches on. Every time I start resisting my writing practice, I return to Cynthia Morris and her website Original Impulse. Whenever I’m taking on longterm creative projects, Cynthia is the first person I call. Her processes for getting back into relationship with your projects have been refined over decades, and they work. We workshop some of these in today’s conversation. In 2012 Cynthia launched her novel Chasing Sylvia Beach— after writing it for 13 years, through 17 full drafts. Celebrating her huge achievement is something I’ll never forget. Since that time, I’ve watched her evolve into a highly-prolific visual artist, and hand-lettering master. Her hand drawn cards hang on the walls of our home, and she leads workshops in Paris teaching others how to “Capture The Wow.” In our conversation we break down her 8th, and brand new book: “The Busy Woman’s Guide to Writing a World-Changing Book.” We also get into the impact of Cynthia’s deep yoga practice (she’s averaged 5 trips to the yoga studio per week over the last 23 years). Are you ready to be inspired to finish? Are you ready to celebrate publishing your next big creation? Cynthia Morris is going to coach us in getting there. This Epic Life presents Author, Artist, Yogini, and Writing Coach Cynthia Morris. You will learn in this conversation: We uncover the many correlations between a writing practice, and meditation practice. This was a powerful discovery for us both, because we probably met in this life to share those gifts with one another. How so many creatives and entrepreneurs get stuck in a loop of their own creativity versus the work it takes to finish something. The secrets and best-practices Cynthia puts to work in her own writing practice (which resulted in her latest book) The power of an “insertion point” in creating momentum. Some powerful reflections on staying on integrity with ourselves, and honoring our commitments. Lots of laughs about many random, funny things. lol.

Cynthia Morris: On Original Impulse

The Messy Middle

Cynthia Morris is a creativity coach, the author of the novel Chasing Sylvia Beach, Create your Writers Life and The Graceful return.   She is also one of the few coaches for Jonathan Fields Good Life Project.  She has both a depth and playfulness about her that I love.  We share a love of creative journey and watercolor, and she is working on creating her first illustration book. I absolutely loved getting to talk with Cynthia who shared so much with me about her own messy middle spaces, overcoming them, stepping into them and why she thinks they are so important.   There are some people you immeditely have  a connection with and Cynthia immediately put me in a place of ease as if we’ve known each other for years.  Show Notes: Original Impulse: Who are you and how does that express itself. What are your original gifts that are satisfying to you. Creativity is on our heirarchy of needs. Seeking to help people come to a good relationship with their creativity. How can we not be at battle with their creativity. Sticking with writing a book that took her 13 years. Talk about being in the middle space and the power of seeing something through Commitment points: where you recommit, am I still in it? And why? There are gifts in the process, but often you don’t get them until you finish. Celebrating Big Moments www.originalimpulse.com instagram @ cynthia morris Chasing Sylvia Beach
