How to break your creative practice from the ‘free’ trap


I just published this story about the free trap that we writers and creators find ourselves in.

The problem is only getting worse, but there are a few things you can do to prevent yourself from getting stuck in this ‘everything is free’ hamster wheel of creative poverty. Read the story here.

In your service,
