IS THIS FOR ME?


If you can answer YES to any of these questions, then sign up below and get out of your comfort zone to create something magical!

PLAY & BE CURIOUS

Are you willing to take the emotional risk and excavate your inner self and the world around you? Be curious to what you may find? Step away from stagnation and go places, do things, allow yourself to feel things, and play to see with fresh eyes.  Live your life to have experiences and material to explore. Inaction keeps us emotionally safe so be courageous instead!  Write your story by playing again.

PEN TO PAPER

Are you willing to slow down your creative process to experiment or explore without any expectations or judgments weighing you down?  Write by hand and answer these prompts and delve into what it is to be human and build something authentic to draw others into your world.

We ask that you use a writing instrument with a notebook, sketchbook, index cards, or loose-leaf paper to feel your words flowing from your hand to find emotional release through writing.

TRUST THE PROCESS

Can you accept using a system to help you show up regardless of the outcome from yesterday or today? 

Show up for yourself and take the smallest and most effortless step on a daily basis to start writing. When action is taken consistently and intentionally, it will help create momentum to get you through the sunny or stormy days.  You are building a habit to show up despite you aren't in the mood or your day is terrible.

EMBRACE THE MESSINESS

Can you accept writing badly just so you can practice writing regularly?

Fortune favors the brave!

So be brave and embrace imperfection to learn how to write a discovery draft to find the story you want to tell.  Take up the challenge to go on a writing journey.

HELLO, I'M ANN

Okay, that's not me.

What would you give to be a kid again - laugh out loud and be carefree with no worries in the world.  You would have the freedom to play without judgment and not feel the heavy burden that you must do it right and believe you are worthy only because you're productive. 

 

Well, I am older and a little wiser to realize that I am worthy and not defined by my results as a person or writer.  But it took a long while to learn this about myself.

I created Sloppy Copy because I'm an ADHD and dyslexic who has struggled to write a book because I've been overwhelmed by the enormity of it.  I once believed I was unworthy because I didn't know how to write a book and where to start. All I had was plenty of ideas that went nowhere.

Then I had an epiphany to combine writing and the Agile framework to build a creative process system to destroy a blank page.  Agility solves problems by breaking a project into small chunks to encourage experimentation.  My objective is to get out of my head and Agile allows me to do it.

Sloppy Copy was born as a result of my struggle and frustration that I had for many years to get the words down on paper.

I'm excited to see you grow your creativity and be a content creator and conquer the blank page with my story development system.

All the best,

Ann
