My friend Madeleine is knocking my socks-off with her latest idea. Her interviews and resources over on Extraordinary Routines literally give me life some days - helping me to keep inspired, focused and productive. And her new venture, Side Project Sessions is ONE HUNDO my kind of thing.
Essentially a targeted, fun and not-depressing-and-isolating way to put some time into your side project or creative pastime. Nothing but a group of lovely people getting together on a semi-regular but accessible basis to put their heads down and get shit done. It's as simple and genius as that.
I know from experience how daunting, tedious and boring the idea of spending your Tuesday night or Sunday morning holed-up at home 'trying' to work on something you actually have high-hopes and some love for, while everyone else is out in the world being happy. It feels HARD. So setting aside some time to actually power through a few things in good company, with a decent coffee, seems like a dream.
In Melbourne right now, but surely taking over the world any day?
