Go from overwhelmed, anxious, and stuck, to consistent, clear, and in control of your creative life. If you feel like you're floundering in the deep end (Not waving, drowning!), and anxiety over the complexity and enormousness of your creative projects overwhelms you, stop scrambling to fit everything in and feeling stretched thin. DIVE DEEP AND SWIM Sustain the energy you feel when thinking of how awesome your projects could be. Value your own creative work as highly as work you do for other people. Build a reusable structure and process that will consistently get you to the finish line. Blast through your stuck-ness. Focus. Finish. Move on to the next project. You're a creative person. Even if you have a hard time calling yourself a "writer" or an "artist" in public, making your creative work is core to who you are and how you see the world. You may be harboring a big, ambitious idea for a project. Possibly a lot of them. And it's killing you. You lie awake thinking about it...and hating yourself for not doing more to make it real. And then in the morning you're exhausted, and you can't believe you "wasted" more time on this stupid idea. Who ever told you you were creative anyway? You try to shove your idea away, to forget it. But your creative work is what keeps you sane. You can't not do this. So you live with guilt and anxiety all the time. You've tried to carve out the time and attention you need to devote to your creative work. You've made ambitious goals, you've written lists, you've scheduled calendars...you've installed shackles on your desk chair. But chaining yourself to your work only seems to make you more distractible and more miserable. (And those unsightly leg sores!) Maybe you've even tried to borrow time-management tips from the business world. Get things done! Build seven habits! Eat that frog! But following business-minded productivity systems just doesn't work for you. The issue isn't simply getting "things" done, it's allowing yourself to devote precious time and attention to the vital, self-generated creative work that builds toward your vision for the future. The problem is, the life you're living is already full. You've made a lot of promises, to yourself, your family, your friends, and your community, that you'll be there for them. You probably have a job; you may have kids. You may well have many competing ideas for your creative work. Where, exactly, can you find that mythical Creative Focus Unicorn? In Growing Gills, you'll discover that the power is already within you to make your work. The biggest obstacles to your getting your important creative work done lie in the unknowns you're facing. Growing Gills takes you step by step through the process of pinning down exactly what's stopping you from finishing your beautiful, inventive, and potentially game-changing projects. Using the power of conscious decision, you'll build your own unique system for fitting creative work into your existing life, taking into consideration how you work best. Like a custom-designed, powered exoskeleton, your personal system will bolster and support your creative practice day in and day out, so that you can grow up and grow old while continuing to make your creative work...without chucking out all the other connections to your family and the world that make your life rich and worth living. GROWING GILLS: Breathe in the deep end. With your purchase of the ebook or print edition, you'll also get: The Growing Gills Workbook for free A checklist to identify what specifically stands in your way An invitation to a 5-day free minicourse where you'll build a plan to overcome those obstacles.

In the Point St. Charles of the author’s childhood people move for one of two reasons: their apartment is on fire, or the rent is due. Starting in 1968, eight-year-old Kathy Dobson shares her early years growing up in Point St. Charles, an industrial slum in Montreal (now in the process of gentrification). She offers a glimpse into the culture of extreme poverty, giving an insider’s view into a neighbourhood then described as the “toughest in Canada.” When student social workers and medical students from McGill University invade the Point, Kathy and her five sisters witness their mother transform from a defeated welfare recipient to an angry and confrontational community organizer who joins in the fight against a city that has turned a blind eye on some of its most vulnerable citizens. When her mother wins the right for Kathy and her two older sisters to attend schools in one of Montreal’s richest neighbourhoods,Kathy is thrown into a foreign world with a completely different set of rules, leading to disastrous results.

Pigeon Reader is inspired by Georges Perec's thoughts on reading, which he likened to 'a pigeon pecking at the ground in search of breadcrumbs'.Morris' intervention oscillates between the obvious and the indecipherable, the trivial or the commonplace and the strange and the unexpected; between sense and non-sense, logic and absurdity, simplicity and abstruseness; between what the artwork shows and what it says. Pigeon Reader is an intervention in a precise facsimile edition of Perec's book, Species of Spaces and Other Pieces (trans. John Sturrock, London: Penguin books, 1997).In remaking the full book, Morris' conviction has gone beyond the recent tradition of the artists' insert. Within the paratext he has corrupted the corporate branding, with penguins morphing into pigeons and advertisements re-imagined.One could be forgiven for asking why someone would remake an entire book just to make a conceptual play in a single chapter. Morris would likely respond with Perec's closing words from the very chapter re-played: 'These are questions that I ask, and I think there is some point in a writer asking them.'
