It applies for any project type, length and discipline.

In each video I’ll guide you through an activity to help you get clear on what you would like to work on and put a plan of action in place to make it happen. This is the process I went through to start a solo theatre show, which I successfully wrote, produced and performed.

If you're not yet sure what you'd like to create - we'll cover that in the course and then put in practical steps to start and finish the project.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

* Conscious exercises to get clear on what you’d like to prioritise in your creative life.

1. Three Steps to Set Up Your Next Creative Project: Introduction: This class helps you set up your next creative project with confidence to be completed in a sustainable way personalized to your schedule. We're all unique with individual experiences that we can express in a variety of creative ways. Taking your initial seed of an idea through your fruition is a wonderful contribution that you can make to yourself and others if you choose to share your creative work and this class helps you do that. My name's Mantha and I'm a storyteller. My background is in dance and acting. And after a while of telling other people stories, I wanted to start writing. I've written poetry, short stories, adapted them for theater and film. And after years of self reflective work and practices, and now love making and sharing resources related to creativity and intentional living. As you can see, I'm a multi passionate creative with a curious mind. And I'm into quite a few different disciplines which is great. And also there have been times when I've taken on too many projects at once and burnt out. And other times when I've started something new and felt overwhelmed because I've not yet developed a skill set and mindset, I was pushing myself too much, and that's led me to shut down. In both instances, I stopped engaging in my creative life. Now, before I embark on any creative endeavor, I go through a process that helps me set up the project in a sustainable way so that I enjoy it and can continue being creative. This is vital because the way that we set up anything in life determines how it's going to go. And my intention for my creative work and yours is to flow. I'll share this process with you in the class and create space for you to reflect on what you like to prioritize right now. And implement a practical plan to help you keep to your unique expression. Are you're choosing to work in an area brand new to you or something that you're more familiar with. All you need is passion and something to write with. By the end of the class, you'll have a one page roadmap which will help keep you inspired on track and act as a helpful tool to communicate to yourself and others that we're currently working on in your creative life. More about that in the next lesson. 2. Class Project: Create A One - Page Plan: Project for this class is to create a one page plan that clearly outlines your next creative endeavor. You're going to include the creative field that you're working in, the form that it's going to take, and a completion date. Then you're going to include what you need to finish it. Materials, resources, and inspiration. As well as a habit that you can do on a regular basis to help support your creative work. I've created a template which you can download under the Resources tab. You can type directly onto this or you can print it out and handwrite onto it whatever works for you. Also, feel free to customize it and make it your own. By the end of the class, you will have completed this one page plan. We're going to work on it together in each lesson, at which point you can upload it to the project gallery. Upload it as a PNG file. If you are doing it digitally or if you have handwritten it, just take a photo and upload it. And I am really looking forward to seeing all the different creative projects which are going to be birthed into the world. As you can see, this plan is very clear and simple and practical, and that is what I like about it. I find that when I come to work on a creative project, there are lots of ideas going on in my head, including logistical things I'm going to do that I like to get it all down on a piece of paper and then I can refer back to it. It keeps me on track and inspired as I continue to work on my project. Also just help getting things going in order to reach this level of clarity. We are going to go deep in each lesson. We're going to go through different activities together. We're going to have fun exploring what it is that is important to you right now. What you'd like to work on and how you're going to do. So with that in mind, along with the project document, have a notebook or some pieces of paper which you can just make some rough notes on. Then at certain stages, I'll prompt you to type into your document and you can have it all completed by the end of the class. And once you've uploaded your project to the project gallery, also take a look at other people's projects so that we can celebrate and support one another in our work. And you might also find people who you can collaborate with. People who work in your field or different fields, and you can help and support one another. I also think this is a great exercise in seeing how many different creative expressions there are in the world. And to really take a look and go, wow, that person works on that. And I work on this and to acknowledge that we really do all have different experiences, different ways of expressing ourselves. To really validate our own ideas as well. And to realize that if a certain creative idea, inspiration has come to us, there's a reason for that, there's a reason to explore and work on it. And that's what we're going to be taking a look at in the next lesson. Download your project template now have it with you in each lesson. As well as some paper just to make some notes on. And I'll see in the next. 3. Lesson One: Explore and choose your current creative focus: This son. We are going to be focusing in on what is a priority for you right now in your creative life. We all only have so much energy to give. And that's why it's important that we focus in on what is most important to us. And that's going to be different depending on who we are. We live in an incredible world right now. This is an amazing time to be alive. There are so many more opportunities, things available to us. And at the same time, there are so many messages coming at us, Do this, do that. And that could be coming from society at large, from media, and also perhaps from our own communities, our own networks in which we live in. So it's really important amongst all that noise that we focus in on who we are and what's important to us, because we know ourselves better than anyone else will ever know us. You know what's going on inside of here. And we're going to use the opportunity now to get really clear, listen to it, and dedicate ourselves to our priorities. A few years ago, I went to a group meditation event. Before it began, we were each invited to select a piece of paper from a basket. They all had different things written on them. And mine said, not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love was by Mother Teresa. And it's really stuck for me now. You definitely can go and do great things with your creativity and have great impact, and I support you in that. What I love about this quote is a focus on the small things that all of us can do with great loves. The collective is made up by lots of smaller parts. A creative project is made up by lots of smaller parts. And the thing that gets it from the beginning through to completion is love. Love will always feel it. In looking for motivation, it comes when you love to do something. Yeah, there will be little billy bits in projects where there might have to be a little bit more discipline brought in or something else. But essentially really want to be going with what it is that we love. So this is what we're going to be focusing in on right now. To do that, first, let's get into our bodies, get into a comfortable position, and if it's safe and appropriate to do so, generally close your eyes. Follow my instructions. I'd like you to place one hand on your belly and one hand over your heart space. When you breathe, let your belly expand. Pick a gentle inhale through your nose, up into your head and hold. Generally exhale through your mouth, sending the breath all the way down through your body and out through the bottom of your feet. Again, take a gentle inhale through your let your belly expand. Take that breath up to the top He through your mouth, right through your body. Let the breath go out through the bottom of your fee, a final time. Now, gently inhale through your nose. Let the breath go up to your, gently exhale through your mouth and focus your attention on your heart's face. Okay. Take out a piece of paper. Now, whenever I prompt you to write anything down, I really do encourage you to write it down. I say this as someone who had a lot of resistance to writing, especially thoughts and feelings. I didn't want to get them out on a piece of paper. But I have found that the more that I do that, the quicker I'm able to move forward. I can either let that thing go, or I'm going to take action on it and move forward with it. And this is going to be a simple, easy, fun exercise to do. First of all, I just want you to make a list of three things. Creative activities that you love to do, write them down. Now, if you need to pause the video at any point, do so. Now, for contrast, write down a list of anything that you've done, perform the past creative activities, and you haven't loved them, you haven't enjoyed them. Maybe it's something that you were made to do at school or someone suggested to, thought you would like it. And then when you did it, you're actually like, you know, it's not for me and that's okay. Take 30 seconds. Now, write down anything that you have not loved doing or anything that you are just not interested in. Now, your third list, write down at least three things that you have never done before but you would like to give a go. Fantastic. So you've got your list of things that you love to do, things for contrast that you know, that you don't enjoy and you'd prefer not to do. You've got a list of things that you've never done before, but you would like to give a go. Now, I'd like you to take that list of things that you love. If I would say to you for the next three months, you could only focus on one of those things. Which one would it be? Put a circle around it. Now, to me, that would indicate what you're most drawn to now that I've said that, and you've got to actually, you know, I'd like it to be this one, then let it be that one. This is just for you to clarify to yourself what is most important to you. You can, of course, do any of these things at any time, and there are people who find it beneficial to work on multiple projects at one. But for the purposes of this overall class, I'd really like you to focus on one thing. Taking that one thing from your initial idea and seeing it through to completion the three months was just an arbitrary time frame I used. We're going to be looking at time frames in the next lesson. The way I like to do it is I'll have one main focus at a time. But it will also allow me to play around in those different areas. So for example, my main creative focus at the moment is making this class. And I love dancing. I go to one or two dance classes a week. But it's a different level of commitment, different level of energy. Someone else has put that on for me. I turn up, I do an hour or so of dance and then I get on with the rest of my life with making this class. There's more of me that I'm putting into it and it is my priority. I wouldn't let anything get in the way of this, right. For this, you're really choosing your crater field that you are going to just dedicate yourself to for this time. Knowing that you have freedom at any time to go and taste something that is on maybe your list of things that you've never done before. You'd like to give a go. Now I'd like you to take out your class project plan. And in the field where it says Crater Field, just type in whatever field that is going to be in. 4. Lesson Two: Define your creative project and select an endpoint: This son that you are going to select to a creative project and you're going to set an end point for it. Now with this task, I'd really like you to be a kind manager to yourself. You know how it works. Sometimes we might get a boss who sets unrealistic targets that no one is ever going to hit. Let's not do that here. Let's be on our side. We get to be in charge of ourselves, so we get to choose exactly what we're going to work on, how long it's going to take us to do that, and set it up so that we enjoy it. I find it's really important when I am choosing what project I'm going to work on next. And the time frame in which I'm going to work on it is to be realistic about where I am in my personal creative journey. But when I first started writing, I had visions of writing things screen and writing bid pieces and I could see them when I came down to write them on a piece of paper. I struggled with it. I got quite stuck just because I wasn't practiced in doing that. I just had it was new to me. I hadn't done it for a very long time. So what I did was, first of all, I went, oh, no, I'm not going to do this for quite a while. And then I went enrolled in a creative writing class, and the teacher introduced me to some tools and techniques which helped me to free up and get writing again. First of all, we wrote with prompts and then we started writing short stories. So then that was like another project. And then I took a short story and I turned it into a 20 minute theater piece. So that was again, another project. And then I took that theater piece and I put it into a short film. Again, that was another project. Then a couple of years later, I decided that I wanted to do a longer Fa piece solo show, so I did a 60 minute solo show. So I built on what I'd learned from doing a 20 minute piece. And I transformed different form, different topic. I took what I learned and transformed it into a 60 minute piece. And within that, I was doing lots of classes in different disciplines and practicing to make these things happen. Now as much as I like to choose an endpoint that is sustainable and I know that I can complete it without burning myself out. I also don't like to choose an endpoint that is too far in the future because I do find that that can lead to procrastination, as you're probably aware of Parkinson's law, work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion. So if we give ourselves six weeks to do something, it is likely to take six weeks to do it. If we give ourselves two weeks to do something, it's likely to take two weeks to do that thing. With this in mind, we can also take into consideration the project that we're working on and the way that we choose to approach it. With this, I'd really like you to focus on just in this project done, not focusing on the outcome. It needing to be perfect. Not that it needs to be a winning piece of work. Just that you are going to get this done once it's complete by this date. It's at that point that you can refine it if you feel like you need to. So now that you are going to choose your creative project, really take the time to reflect on where you are right now with that particular field. What projects perhaps you've done before or haven't done before, and what you'd like to work on next. And remember how we said the small things with great love for the purposes of this class and taking an idea and bringing it all the way into a completed project really would encourage you to take a smaller part of an overall project and get that done. Instead of writing the whole book and saying that's your project, maybe it's doing the outline of the book. Or if you're deciding to go and create a podcast series, maybe the first step is to do one episode of that podcast. Whatever it is for you, allow you to choose that. Create a project now. Okay, now you got your created project. Let's set an endpoint for it so you know when you're going to complete it by. And you can then work that from there. Figure out what it is that you need to do in order to get to that completion date. Three ways that I find helpful when working out when I'm going to finish a project by. So the first one is either I choose it myself and when I choose it myself, again, I'm going to be a Y manager. I'm going to take into consideration any responsibilities, current commitments, what's going on already in my schedule, what my month looks like in terms of my own cycle and where I know how I feel at different points of the month. Not comparing myself to other people, knowing that we're all individuals and one person's rate of working may be very different from mine. Second way I find helpful is to be in a class where there's a teacher who is setting the completion date for me. For example, when it's in the creative writing class, our teacher would set us to write a short story each week. And so it'd be like a first draft of a short story, here's an idea for it, write it by next week. And again, when I'm going to go and join a class, I just make sure that it's in alignment with who I am, what my own energy levels like. Third way again is letting someone else sell it for you is either to enter something like a competition, a challenge, a festival, and have an external endpoint which other people are working towards and you're all working towards it together. That also can be a helpful way to keep accountable with all of those points though, even if it's say I'm entering a competition or something like that, I don't like to focus on the outcome. I like to use the endpoint as somewhere which I knows a clear date that I'm going to get this done by. But I don't want to be focusing on the outcome soon in creativity. As soon as we're focused on the outcome that can interfere with the actual creative work itself and the creative flow and the enjoyment of it. There is something to be said for setting external goals. And I'm not saying don't do that. Of course, that really can work and it really works for some people. But for the purposes, again, of this class, I'd really like us to be focusing on everything coming from the internal place first. Whatever outcomes come from that afterwards, they are an added bonus once you've completed your project as well. That can be the point when you start focusing on those more external goals. But first of all, let's really focus on what is it that I love? What is that going to be and when am I going to complete that? By in a way that is enjoyable to me. Take out your class project document. And I'd like you to write under the section with your created project and completion date. Write down your created project and put in the end date for it. And then I'll see in the next session. 5. Lesson Three: Identify what you need to complete your project:: To find what you need to complete your project. Take out your project document, You're going to see that there is a section for materials, resources, inspiration, and daily habit. We're going to go through each one. Like with any journey to know where we're going to get to, we need to know where we are starting from. And for each project, you're going to need certain things to complete it. First of all, materials, materials. Is anything physical, unique? If your creative project was to make a Pocast episode, you would write down everything you need to do that. Microphone, laptop editing software, maybe you want to film it, so maybe a device to film yourself on headphones, pen and paper to write the script, or a laptop to write the script. Write down your materials now. Great, so you've got your list of materials. Now I will say that I find it really good to work with as many things that I already have. I'd go through that list of materials and just make a note of everything that I already have and work from there. And if there is anything that is absolutely vital to get this project done that I don't have, I will make a note to get that thing. Either borrowing it, buying it, hiring it, finding a way that's not going to overstretch myself. A few years ago, I started making videos. And I put it off for a while because I thought I need to get a fancy camera to make some videos. And then it got to the point where I was a cape. I'm not going to do that, I'm just going to start making them on my phone. And at the time I had a very basic smartphone. I had recently broken the smartphone. I had. I had bought the most basic one with the most basic camera, and I just started making them on there. And I'm glad that I did because I didn't know whether or not I would like making videos. So I'm glad that I didn't go out and suddenly invest in a really expensive camera before I knew what I can manage. And then after a while, I decided to upgrade my phone with upgrading my camera because I knew that it would be really useful for me to continue making videos on because I discovered that I enjoyed it. Now, resources, resources can look like knowledge, skills that we need to maybe find out a little bit more about. It can look like money to help fund a project. To buy materials to put that project on, can also come in the form of people, people to collaborate with. When I first started writing, I discovered that I really could do with learning more about the technique and going out and taking a class in writing that was a resource for me. So if you find that there may be a resource for you could do research on skillshare and find a relevant class, or find one in your local area and in person class. Or it could be in form of books or going online and getting resources in that way. And also money. If you find that you need to buy something, you might be choosing where's that money going to come from? Are you going to do a fundraiser for it? Are you going to apply for funding? Are there funding sources that you can apply to? Or are you going to use some money that you already have and allocate it to your project and also people to collaborate with. Maybe your project requires you to work with other people. So you can make a list of that in this section here as well. Moving on to inspiration, inspiration. Everything is interconnected. All of creativity is interconnected as well different artworks in conversation with one another. I find it really helpful to know what has come before and also what's going on at the time. Everything's in dialogue with one another. I like to engage with the different artworks, whether that is within the same field that I'm working with or whether it is in different ones and I can be inspired by something else. Do you find that the more that I engage with other creativity, the more it helps spark my own ideas in the inspiration. Just choose one thing that you are going to do over the next week to help keep you inspired. And then you can build on it from there. Can keep this practice going if you choose to do so afterwards. For example, if there has been a film that you've been wanting to watch for a very long time, you've been putting off, now is your time to do it. Or maybe you want to go and visit an art gallery, or there's a show on that you want to see, or there's a book that you would love to read. List down one thing. That's going to be in your inspiration section. Now moving on to the final section, your daily habit that you're going to dedicate yourself to the next seven days. This is something that is going to be really easy for you to do and it's going to be related to your project. It's going to be something that you can practice daily and it's going to just build your skill set. And it's going to be something that's going to help you get in the flow. You can use it as a warm up before you work on your creative project. Or if you have a day where you're not working on your project, it allows you to just keep practicing your skill. And then when you go back into your project, it's going to be so much easier to get into it. That's what I found personally, When I first started writing, I told you I started writing with writing prompts and that I could use them as a warm up. First of all, that helped getting me in the flow of writing, and then I used it as a warm up before I was going to work on a larger project. And there's many examples of creatives doing this. For example, the comedian Jerry Seinfeld. He said that he dedicated himself to writing a joke per day. And he put a Bcanda up on his wall. And every day he wrote the joke, he put a red mark. And then every time he saw those red Xs build up, he said to himself, don't break chain. So it kept him motivated to keep going. And I've made a daily habit tracker for you under the resources tab. So if you download that for seven days every day, you practice your daily habit. You can just market off in whatever way you like and keep yourself inspired to keep going and realize or what great work you're doing. Now with choosing what you're going to do, I would suggest making it something related to your project. For example, if it were writing using writing prompts as a warm up. I'll have a skill share class on that, which you can check out if that is something that you're doing or if your project was to make singing demo real. Perhaps you would do a warm up every day. A vocal warm up. And I'd also say have something where you're not focusing on the outcome or you don't have to focus on the effect of it. It's more like just the action of doing it. That's why I like doing it through time blocking. I go with 4 minutes of writing because I know that in my mind I'm like, okay, well I can put 4 minutes the side of my life to do a little bit of writing. Then it gets me in the flow and then I'll tend to work on from there. But if I have a day where I'm like, okay, I'm just going to do 4 minutes of writing. And if I feel like not doing it after them, then I just let it be and go, well, I did my 4 minutes that's done for the day. Now choose what your daily habit is going to be and write it in to your project. Document amazing work. Now you have your materials, your resources, something aspiring to engage with, and a daily habit that you're going to practice. This is going to build up your skills and it's also going to help build your identity in the field that you're working in. If you're doing something on a regular basis, you are going to inhabit being creative. I will see you in our final lesson. 6. Conclusion: Congratulations and Next Steps: Congratulations on completing this class. This shows that you are a dedicated person who completes what they set out to do. And I have all confidence in you that you are going to complete your creative project by now. You will also have completed your class project, the one page planning document. So we've gone through the critter build that you're dedicating yourself to right now. The Crei project itself that you're going to work on, the completion date for it, and your materials, resources, inspiration, and a daily habit that you're going to do for the next seven days. Take that project, upload it to the project gallery, Upload it as a PNG file, or if you've done a handwritten version, take a photo of it, upload it. I look forward to seeing your project and thank you for taking this class. After you've uploaded your project, please do leave. An honest review helps me improve this class and future classes for you. I'd also love to know which was your favorite lesson and how has it helped you with setting up your creative project. Sum it up in a sentence, and I look forward to hearing from you, and now it's time to take action. First, I would look through materials, resources, make sure that all of that is tidied up. If there's anything you need to get to help start your project, get that now. And then I would start scheduling in time, so you've got your daily habit to work on. Decide when you're going to work on that and put aside that time. For example, if you want to do your daily habit, 5 minutes in the morning, put that in your diary and then your created project itself. I like to look at the end date and then work back from there. Decide what I need to do to complete it, break it down into chunks, And again, I will time block it and schedule it into my diary. I treat it like an appointment. Just like if I were to say to a friend, I'll meet you on Saturday between 1012 for a cup of tea I'd keep to that commitment. Same thing with my created projects. If I say I'm going to work on something at this time, I'm going to go and work on it. And you and I both know with creativity is not always as clean and simple as that. But remember this is our first version of it. We are not looking to be perfect. We're looking to get it done. It's at that point then you can start refining it and working on it. And then, of course, if inspiration hits at another time and you have time and space to do it, go into the flow, enjoy it. Work on your project, have fun with it. We've got this really lovely, clear, neat plan, but we know that creativity is messy and playful, and that's how it's meant to be. So things don't go exactly to plan. That's all right. If you find that you do it and you don't really enjoy it, that's okay too. It's just part of the exploratory journey. Also, if you do it and you find that you love it, great, keep with it. After you've finished this project, do an evaluation on it again. How did it go and what would you like to work on next? You can always go through this process again. Either continue with this project, build on it in a different way. Bring in a new project. It's your creative journey, it's your life. Do what works best for you, and I hope that you have a wonderful time doing it. Really enjoy this process, enjoy the journey. If you'd like to keep in contact, then you could join my newsletter. Put the details under the resources tab, and I look forward to seeing your projects in the project gallery.
