A weekly email to boost the motivation and accountability of creative people
UPDATE 2023 While running costs meant I had to stop this free mailing list for writers and creatives, the Sunday Confession Booth has now been reborn in the Community Chat section of my Patreon community! To boost your weekly motivation and sense of accountability, you can join us for as little as £2 per month. Note: the Community Chat area is currently accessible via the excellent Patreon app only.
AS MAILING LISTS GO, THE BOOTH COULDN'T BE SIMPLER:
I email you every Sunday at 7pm GMT to ask what you created this week.
If you like, you can reply and tell me what you've made. Lots of people do this and I read every email. Sometimes I'm able to reply too, but mainly my role is to listen without judgement, like some kind of literary priest.
Lots of subscribers tell me they find that the Booth helps them with motivation and accountability, perhaps because they know the email is coming every Sunday. Some have even told me it's helped them secure paid work.
THE FIRST AND ONLY RULE OF JASON ARNOPP'S SUNDAY CONFESSION BOOTH:
If you're a writer, you must never tell me any specifics about the stories you're working on. No log lines, no character names, no titles, nothing. If you do, you'll put me in an awkward legal situation and I'll regretfully have to remove you from the list. If I'm already working on a similar story to yours, for instance, then things could get messy.
So what can you tell me? The genre's fine. Tell me you've written five chapters of your paranormal romance story/script. That's fine. But what I mainly want to hear is how many words, chapters, script pages, illustrations, songs, photos or just good old-fashioned work you've achieved this week. Also, how you feel about what you've done.
Right! Now we've got that dull but vital rule out of the way, it's time for you to boost your weekly motivation and sense of accountability by signing up to this mailing list via the sign-up form at the foot of this page... (which no longer exists - see 2023 update at the top of page)
