Review and Blog Tour for Time Management For Creative People by Deirdra Eden

 

Chances are you’ve tried and failed with spreadsheets, agendas, day planners, and other mathematical and finite ways of measuring time. Applying the strict regimes of industrial systems to a creative mind can kill creativity, damper the enjoyment of your work, and knock you off balance.
In this workbook you will learn to balance, organize, and prioritize all you need to get done by living your life in creative cycles and seasons while maximizing your high and low energy times the way you were meant to.
 
Your creativity is a powerful force that can be harnessed, focused, controlled, commanded, and become a powerful ability as you masterfully channel your desire to create into the powerful motivating force it is meant to be.

 

  

 

 

Deirdra has spent the last decade captivating audiences of all ages with her novels and fairy tales. Her specialty is paranormal theology that delves into documented historical phenomenon and natural disasters of biblical proportions. 

As an author and one who has a full-time job to juggle along with my family and writing, I was interested in reading Deirdra Eden’s Time Management for Creative People. While I read the eBook copy, I’m sure the paperback edition will be more useful because of the fill-in charts, diagrams, and tables included in this workbook. I loved the way that each exercise built on the other allowing the reader to learn ways to organize projects and priorities while setting goals for the future. Projects are divided into Yearly, Quarterly, Monthly, Weekly, and Daily tasks. The Creative Time Management Wheel diagram illustrates the creative, seasonal cycles and high and low energy levels of the creator. I recommend this book for anyone in the Arts — authors, artists, musicians, etc. Keep an eye out for this book at Barnes & Noble and other bookstores.
