Though her work centers on wild, uninhibited creative acts, Keri Smith is a self-proclaimed introvert. The hugely popular bestselling author Wreck This Journal is the first to admit that our creative needs to be a sacred choice, an intentional process that we commit to, despite the voices around us (and in our head), telling us not to. Keri and Jen get vulnerable as they discuss the gap between their public and private personas, and the very real looming specter of burnout that challenges every creative. They also discuss:
1:27 - Book as a sacred object
5:32 - The value of rituals and reptition.
9:47 - The myths around social media
16:53 - Random chance encounters with your creativity.
21:42 - Toxic comparisons with others.
27:46: How to remove the ego and focus on how JOHN CAGE influenced Keri’s work.
32:42: Why Keri doesn't read reviews
