Whether you upload to YouTube or perform your poems, plays, music and stories live in your local pub, the World needs your creativity in its search for new directions.
Back in the 1700’s, they coined the phrase ‘Penny University’ (pun intended) for gatherings in coffee bars between wide spectrum groups of fresh thinkers and doers. Now, such groups gather in virtual “Coffee Chats” or in street “Chat Cafés”.
Join one. Join lots. Join the dots whether you’re standing at a water cooler, waiting in a queue, grabbing a coffee break, loving an unplanned rave or smiling at someone who just sparks your interest. Every moment needs your attention like never before.
So mix, because it’s only in the mix of creative ideas between musicians, writers; designers, engineers, MC’s, farmers , scientists, posties and programmers that the ‘new’ gets carved. Did I miss your skill at being yourself off this list? If I did, you’re on the extended list an so is whoever you meet.
Look for events. This one got publicity in the Telegraph:
“In Bishop’s Castle in the Clun Valley, the Rizla-rollers and the red-coated riders have two of the best watering holes in the county. At the bottom of a picturesque one-in-six gradient high street is the brightly painted Six Bells. The small two-room inn opposite the church has its own brewery producing Cloud Nine beer. It sells a host of fruit wines, including cowslip and dandelion, and holds “rhyme and tell” evenings and folk sessions.” Full Story at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/pubs/3315410/Pint-to-pint-Six-Bells-and-Three-Tuns.html

Find lulu.com if you have written a book which is ready to go to print. If not, find a one-stop-publishing-shop. For example, I met Bob Fowke just before Christmas at Knighton’s 2nd Literary Festival. He’s a true fountain of publishing knowledge.
I found a business café locally. Try a Chat Cafés with Penny Power backing – and change the social-to-business side of building communities.
THE BIG CHANGE IS COMING. IT’S YOURS.
Though I don’t have a link for scheduling coffee chats, I’m open to them.
