Holy Shit MOMENTUM!
Here’s the BIG thing I realized this week: If you want something really bad (like I want MY book to be published) you are more likely to walk through fears that have stopped you in the past. It’s amazing what a little desire will do to dissolve fear.
Great talk with literary agent about direction for my SPIRITUAL memoir. There it is, the big fear – I am admitting to the world that what I do is of a spiritual nature. To me that means examining what brings meaning to my life as a human, what it takes to embrace the whole shebang I am offered while being alive (the good, the bad, the beauty, and the ugly) and how I can walk through it awake and with compassion.
Built a new website: www.thekellycarlinsite.com where I have integrated all of my polyminds for the world to see, and fully owning that I am a hyphenate in an increasingly intergral world: author-speaker-teacher-daughter.
Said yes to teaching a 90 minute online webinar in December. Another HUGE fear busted through – teaching strangers, not just friends and acquaintances. Big hurdle in the past.
And of course, saying yes to all the promotion for my dad’s book Last Words, that comes out November 10th. http://books.simonandschuster.com/Last-Words/George-Carlin/9781439172957 I’ll be doing live, print, radio and TV promoting.
Which led me to saying yes to Tim Robbins when he asked me Wednesday night, “Will you read some of your stories at the screening?” Here’s the link for that event: http://www.wtffestival.theactorsgang.com/calendar.html#nov4
Now go out and have some fucking fun!
