2018, What We Covered

 

I want to say thank you to everybody who has been a part of this newsletter.

2018
There is now a backlog of more than *150* letters, all of which push forward our discussion about the nuances of your creative life. You can browse through a short list of essays picked from last year (https://www.notion.so/davidsherry/d0808d85451741e6a671e389f74d79cd?v=dabf75deb05b4d99b64904f486dd5b6e) , in case you missed any of them.

Each time I write, I do so intending to speak to you directly, as a digital confidant.

And after literally 1,000’s of emails and replies exchanged between us, it certainly feels this way… building our own island on the internet.

Upcoming Census
If you want to get a sense of the digital island, here is the 2018 community census (https://www.notion.so/davidsherry/6d615aa4286b41deae48af21e05c23a9?v=f6945c7e6a3346c985bc7011aad40b02) 450+ of you filled out early last year. (Global Locations below) I’ll do another this year, with fresh questions, to further help people get to know who else is out there reading and creating…

Hit Reply
Thank you also for your contribution.

I typically send out replies that I’ve gathered from responses and will continue that this year. I’m still waiting to discover the right location for a more real-time chat/community hangout spot. When I find it, I’ll let you know. All that to say, I always enjoy reading and sharing your thoughts.

And as always, don’t hesitate to reach out,

xx David

MEMBER GUIDE

1. OPEN AND CONNECTED

– Everyone is creative. Everyone can contribute a thought, feature or idea if they desire to do so.
2. REMAIN DYNAMIC

– CC is responsive. There is a constant, changing dynamic of this newsletter and community.
3. KEEP NO AGENDA

– The best things grow naturally from giving yourself to something and then allowing serendipity take you to a place you didn’t expect.
4. KEEP SPACE

– Your attention is valuable. Give yourself the space and time away from the crowd to synthesize your own ideas and develop a unique perspective.
5. BUILD AND REPACKAGE

– Build and repackage your perspective to serve different people, companies, projects, dreams, and desires.
6. FLOWING > FORCING

– Arrive at events without a forced plan of what you are going to do or say. The best things happen as if you are watching them unfold.
7. STOKE THE FIRE

– Support and nurture the growth of desire rather than “fixing” problems.
