    Mariëlle Smith on Using Your Intuition in Your Creative Work

    Mariëlle is a writer and editor and coaches writers and other creatives who are tired of being in their own way. Next to her non-fiction work, she is currently working on a YA urban fantasy series, and she writes LGBTQIA* sexy romance with Sìne Màiri Ní Ailpín under a pen name. She recently moved to Cyprus, an tiny island in the Mediterranean Sea, where she organises private writer's retreats, is inspired 24/7, and feeds more stray cats than she could have ever imagined.
     
    We discuss:
    • Using tarot and other divinatory tools in your creative work
    • How to tell if it's your ego speaking or your intuition speaking
    • Mariëlle's creative process, as an INFJ
    And much more!

    Why You Can't Get What You Want (Ever)

    Why You Can't Get What You Want (Ever)

    Today I want to talk to you about wanting things, all the things - and why we simply can’t get what we want. Ever. Sorry to burst your bubble. I promise there will be something redeeming and positive in today’s message: I want to prove to you that it can actually be a GOOD thing - it might just take a while for us to get to it. It’s worth it though.

    The Daimon and Creativity

    The Daimon and Creativity

    This maybe the podcast I’ve done most research for in the history of the Creative Introvert, and not just book research. It’s a topic that’s been brewing somewhere in my mind, whether it’s consciously or otherwise, and I finally have my ideas in a place where I’m ready to share and fairly confident in my ability to give you something that’s genuinely useful, especially if you’re interested in tapping into your source of greatest creative potential, getting into that flow state, and living from a place that feels true for you.

    We have a super fun conversation talking about:
    How to help your friends to understand your introversion How Heather learnt networking skills and reinvented the meaning of networking in the process Why you already have a network and how to bring it back to life The number one question you should ask at networking events (and how to avoid ‘what do you do?) A defence of small talk!

    Why Those Productivity Tips Don’t Work For You

    Why Those Productivity Tips Don’t Work For You

    This is something that’s taken me quite a few years and many, many chats with various creative introverts to discover: not all tips to be productive work for me or you or anyone for that matter.
    Yeah, I know. Mind = blown.
    Maybe you already knew that. But maybe you didn’t and you were like me, wondering why the fuck the advice of this hyper-productive guru just didn’t work when you tried to apply it in your own life.
    The truth is, we’re not all identical beings. Nor are we totally unique either. We’re this annoyingly intricate, yet beautifully nuanced jumble of similarities and differences. Which… makes giving advice on things like productivity and getting stuff done… rather tricky.
    And I’ll be the first to admit I’ve tried to do this. I’ve tried to speak to you, and thousands of other Creative Introverts over the years, and tried to cover all cases, but I’m always going to fall short. I’m always going to miss the edge cases, the rebels, the square pegs, and that irritates the heck out of me.
    The truth is: only YOU know you. Yes, someone else can be very helpful, maybe even necessary, for shining a light on parts of ourselves we didn’t know were there, but it’s really up to us to see what’s being illuminated, accept it, and learn from it.
    Then we can take action that fits us like a snug glove. That’s what today’s podcast is all about. I’m going to guide you through three different tools you can use to figure out what productivity tips to ignore and which will actually work for you.

Now I Get It

I loved the episode with Mariëlle where you talked about what an introvert is and is not! Very helpful for someone who is not an introvert to understand.

Cameyd ,

Super Helpful

I learn something new and feel more and more seen with every episode.

Love it!

Dear Cat, thank you for creating such excellent and practical content for us introverted creatives! I find it mind and soul soothing and I love your voice and your way of expressing/ speaking! Since, I first discovered your podcast ( through your interview with Adam Elenbaas) I've been literally binging on it! Best wishes!
