Today we go back to the roots - design and writing.
So cool to see you will be a mentor again John! Looking forward to your sessions :)
Love this edition John. Congrats with the mentorship, but I'm not surprised ;) Your sessions and support during the last cohort were stellar. The new format works really well and this one flows all the way through. I really like hearing your authentic voice throughout and the playful/personal additions are excellent.
Great issue, John. Glad to know you’re continuing your journey as mentor at WOP. And I second everything you said about Leslie. She’s just an incredible human being, teaching us all about the endless possibilities of following one’s true interests (as you yourself did).
You were one of the first people I met in WoP over a year ago, and grateful to continue supporting the global side together as mentors! Looking forward to more creative sessions 🙌
I want to know your opinion on David Epstein's writing style. I found the book's topic very interesting, but once I sat down to read, I found it unnecessarily dense. As a WOP alum, I spotted several sentences that could have been edited out. I'm curious, what did you think about it?
Loved this edition, John. Congratulations on being a mentor again. WOP is lucky to have you :)
Honored to help with the next creative session :)
Hey John - I am totally into stories about people who bring a couple of cross-disciplines together and basically wind up creating a new niche that never existed before. Leslie is a great example - designer, climber, and now add writer to the mix and you've got lift-off. Which is what is so exciting about meeting other blossoming writers, it's often that skill that tips the scales along with their existing expertise and then wonderful things start happening as they express their unique world of competency. Also going to check out printify - thanks for mentioning it.
