CK Wylde1,228A Circle Share Of Crazy People - Also Known As WritersI've not really shared circles before but every time +Brian Buckley does it I end up with fantastic new people in my feed.  So I thought I would share my writer's circle with you all. In it you will find  a bunch of G+ Writers and people who have to do with writers (publishers for instance).  WarningI tried this a little earlier and had a couple of people say they couldn't see the people in the circle. If you can't please let me know, I'm trying to figure out why that might be happening. Also, if you happen to know why that happens I am all ears.If you want to be included in this circle, also plese let me know.  #writers   #circleshare   #circles  2013-11-18 20:32:284401519

Simona AN23,183+Todaysmemory THANK YOU CircleSince last year, I started to post memories of the day - celebrations, great people in painting, sculpture, music, dance, literature, film, science, etc. A tribute to the people who have left a mark in history, an international celebration, all with a short summary. I named these posts Today's Memory. When I saw that my memories captured attention, I create a page, +Todaysmemory (with big help from my friend +Angela Ghinea) and I discovered a lot of people with the same tastes and posts.Here's a BIG THANK YOU Circle with the best friends and Sources of +Todaysmemory.  A group of extremely interesting people, if you add them you won't regret!If you like the memories, I invite you to send, with hashtag #todaysmemory  and curator me, +Simona AN everything you think deserves your tribute!

Nina Pelletier11,765I have been requested to share my writers circle many times over the last year, but I never felt right doing it. After 2 emails I received yesterday asking so kindly that I share it yet again, I figured it's time to do so.I have over 500 writers in my writers circle because, hey, that's why I'm here right? But sadly only 500 of them can be shared at once. So you won't get all of the wonderful writerly people I have met on this lovely world we call Google+, but here are 500 of them.  Enjoy and share.If I've missed any writers, please feel free to add them in the comments below.Thank you to this awesome community of literary quirkiness and genius. ♥  #writershelpingwriters   #writers  2012-09-12 15:13:0750121411
Don Sturgill57This Writer's Circle probably needs to be edited, but it's a start. Do you have a list of favorite writers on Google+ to share? Please do.2012-08-27 20:46:3870000
Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 2 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #2 of the 2. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #sharedcircles +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:24:39330211318
Rob Gordon22,157*Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business OwnersUPDATED SHARED CIRCLE: Part 1 of 2: A through L (by last name).Link to Part (M-Z):         http://goo.gl/0Fcg1Link to Supplemental 1: http://goo.gl/AXXrWLink to Supplemental 2: http://goo.gl/TZKKeLike to Supplemental 3: http://goo.gl/3x6hINOTE:  This circle is no longer maintained in its present form but is still a good place to start if you are looking for entrepreneurs to follow and connect with here.  It has mostly been replace with a Google+ community of the same name that you can find at http://goo.gl/ejG9P**********************This is the most recent update to the popular "entrepreneurs" circle that posted a few months ago. As you can see, it has gotten bigger than 500 people so I have had to split it alphabetically into two parts. These two circles includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy.This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own business or venture. There are more than 800 people here, but this has been reviewed extensively since it was last published -lots of fantastic new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of really awesome business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset.This is a really diverse group and includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures and are wildly successful, others are just getting started and haven't made it yet. As can be expected, it is a little tech heavy, but represents most industries and many different types of business. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in small business issues and always seem welcome to help entrepreneurial efforts. The people in these circles post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you check this out.I do want to add the disclaimer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and this is just a tiny fraction of them - the ones I have curated. It seems that about two seconds after I publish this I always remember someone I should have included so just me know if you think you should be here. I republish this periodically and generally add everyone who comments on the post.As with all circles of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either update your existing circle, pick and choose the ones you like or use these as a trial circles - whatever works for you. I'm not even sure Google will let you add all this many names at once so you may have to come back if you want to add all of them. The technology for this is not perfect, but I am trying to do my part to help build a highly interconnected community of entrepreneurs here on Google+.I hope you find the people in this circle interesting.RobReshares welcome and appreciatedIMPORTANT: You don't want to follow people based on where their last name fits in the alphabit do you? Make sure you also take a look at the second part of this list:LINK TO PART II (M-Z): http://goo.gl/0Fcg1#smallbusiness2012-04-18 18:49:234401197169

Gabriel Fitzpatrick3,746Writers CircleA couple people have asked me to share a circle of writers because there apparently aren't enough of those. This is the first full one, and contains most of the writers whose posts and content I've found interesting and engaging (or at very least who haven't been so insufferable as to warrant an uncircling ^.^) If you aren't here, you may very well be in the second one. Don't jump to any conclusions :)2012-03-26 22:19:06499983
Meilani MacDonald1,201If the Circle Fits, Share It! - Entrepreneurs, Freelancers and Small BusinessWow, where to begin? This is exactly the circle I was looking for: entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business. I'll begin with a thanks to +Rahul Roy, whose always helpful posts of resources for new and wanting to be more active plussers pointed the way to www.CircleCount.com. That site turned out to be a great resource for finding shared circles defined by interest. There, I found +Rob Gordon's awesome entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business circle. I know it's a quality circle, as I noticed many of the folks in it are already in my circles, and I generally circle people who make posts I find to be useful, educational and enlightening. I hope you will find them as useful and enlightening as I have! #smallbusiness #freelance #professional #entrepreneur2012-03-24 00:26:5250111715
Rob Gordon18,830Entrepreneurs, Self Employed & Small Business. This is the latest update to my shared circle for "entrepreneurs" which includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy. This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own small business or venture.

There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in entrepreneurial and small business issues. The professionals in this circle post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you at least take a look. As with any circle of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either pick and choose the ones you like or use it as a trial circle - whatever method works for you. I also recently learned that you can save circles to your Google contacts so you can save this information there even if you don't want to use this toward your 5000 limit. I hope you find the people in this circle interesting. I certainly do. RobReshares welcome and appreciated#sharedcircles#smallbusiness #entrepreneurs #startup2012-03-13 20:32:12500663852

It's curious. For the longest while, I was selling way more ebooks (mostly Kindle) than paperbacks. Now that pattern has reversed itself and paperback sales are in the lead, by far. No idea what's going on...and it doesn't matter (though I welcome your theories!). I'm just gratified that people are buying my books, in whatever form!
• Look for all 11 of my titles on most Amazon sites (www.amazon.com/author/markdavidgerson in the U.S.), on my website (www.markdavidgerson.com/bookstore), from select other online booksellers or from your favorite ebook store. And if you like to switch back and forth between paperback and ebook editions of the same title, head for Amazon, where all my books are part the "match" program that gets you the ebook at a substantial discount when you also buy the paperback.

It has been a weird day today. (So many seem to be these days!) Not bad-weird, just weird-weird! I think I'll curl up with a book or movie and let today fizzle out into tomorrow!!

"I love to take actors to a place where they open a vein. That's the job. The key is that I make it safe for them to open the vein."
– director Mike Nichols (The Graduate, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf). When Nichols died yesterday at 83, the world lost a terrific director. 

I chose this quote of Nichols today because that's also how I choose to work with writers as coach, mentor and creativity catalyst: doing my best to make you feel safe enough to be 100% vulnerable on the page. Why? Because just as vulnerability produces the greatest, most authentic acting, it produces the greatest, most authentic writing.

My afternoon's writing on the new book is done (see my previous post) and it has carried me (as is so often the case) in unexpected and uncomfortable directions. Unexpected is good. So is uncomfortable: You've got to dive into all the places in your writing you'd rather flee from! I wish I could say it got easier with each book but, mostly, it doesn't. Even as I have less resistance to the process (for which I'm grateful), ripping my clothes off in public (onto the page, at any rate) is never comfortable! But if I'm going to reach you with my stories, I have to let myself be vulnerable. As I put it in Acts of Surrender: A Writer's Memoir, I have to be ready to "walk the earth naked, clothed only in my truth."

It's been a while since I've spent more than a few first-thing-in-the-morning moments on my newest book (another memoir), but here I am, back in the saddle over coffee and a scone. Even though this book has been slow going, slow going is always better than no-going and I'm grateful for any progress!

Looking forward to getting back in the saddle tomorrow after a physically challenging day today. Even if I'm not 100% tomorrow, I will be by Thursday, when I join Sandra Sedgbeer on her radio show (11/20 at noon PT). Sandie is a superb interviewer, so it should be a stellar broadcast! To get a preview of what Thursday's show will be like, check out our time together last month on Barbara and  Steve Rother's VirtualLight Broadcast -  https://vimeo.com/110068810. And watch this space in a day or so for a link to Thursday's show!

A double dose of terrific news for my newest book, "Birthing Your Book...Even If You Don't Know What It's About"...
1) The #Kindle  edition is once again ranked in #Amazon 's top 100 in two categories: #Creativity  and Authorship!
2) The book's first Amazon review is a five-star gem – possibly one of the best and most comprehensive I have ever received...for any of my 11 books! Here's what +William Reichard has to say:

"I can hardly think of a book on #writing  I would more highly suggest to someone who knows he or she burns to write but just doesn't know how to get through that first cloud."

"The only early birthday it would be impossible for any Jewish boy to forget was my 13th — not the day itself, but my bar mitzvah, six weeks later on November 11. Perhaps the day's deepest significance came from the week’s Torah portion, the one I had spent months learning in a bearded rabbi’s dark study: Lech L’cha. In it, God commands Abraham to “lech l’cha,” to “go forth” to a strange land, "to the land that I will show you.” At 75, accompanied by his wife and nephew, Abraham would leave all that he knew to follow that higher imperative into unknown territory.

It's curious. For the longest while, I was selling way more ebooks (mostly Kindle) than paperbacks. Now that pattern has reversed itself and paperback sales are in the lead, by far. No idea what's going on...and it doesn't matter (though I welcome your theories!). I'm just gratified that people are buying my books, in whatever form!

A Different Kind of Election Story
“In November 2004, not long after the polls closed on America’s 55th election, my wife sat me down in our new living room (we had just moved) and told me that our marriage was over. Perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised. Earlier that evening when I returned home from the failing metaphysical store we then co-owned with friends, I found Doreen Virtue's 'Magical Mermaids & Dolphin Oracle' deck on my desk, where where my five-year-old daughter had been using it to practice her writing. In clear view on a yellow notepad, scratched out in her preschool scrawl, were the words ‘Time to Move On,’ as copied directly from the mermaid card of the same name. A few hours later, it would be.”

"If I had one piece of guidance to offer, something that’s worked miracles in my life, it would be this: Trust in your innate wisdom, your limitless courage and your infinite potential. Don’t let convention or your perceived limitations fence you in. Trust…leap…and surrender!"

"I found success because I wrote for the love of writing. I self-published simply because I wanted to own my work."
- Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of the Silo Saga Trilogy. Film rights to the trilogy's first book have been optioned by director Ridley Scott.

Even as his print books are published by major publishers, Howey's contracts grant him the electronic rights, giving him full ownership of and control over the ebook versions.

"While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.

"Being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day. It’s made me more empathetic, which has led to a richer life. It’s been tough and uncomfortable at times, but it has given me the confidence to be myself, to follow my own path, and to rise above adversity and bigotry. It’s also given me the skin of a rhinoceros, which comes in handy when you’re the CEO of Apple."

"We pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick."
- Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, on letting it be publicly known that he's gay, something he had never previously spoken about, even as it was never a secret. "With his essay," The New York Times reports, "Mr. Cook becomes the most prominent gay man in the corporate world, joining a very short list of openly gay executives at public companies." Some 83 percent of gay, lesbian and bisexual people, the article continued, feel they must hide aspects of their identity at work.

It was great to get back to Las Vegas on Saturday for a return visit to Barbara and +Steve Rother's  VirtualLight Broadcast! Once again, I was chatting with Sandie Sedgbeer about writing and creativity...but this time the focus was on "birthing your book...even if you don't know what it's about." If you need some book-birthing help and missed the live show, catch the video recording at https://vimeo.com/110068810.

Leaving San Diego in the morning for L.A. on this three-city tour that began with an appearance on +Steve Rother's VirtualLight Broadcast out of Las Vegas. The only disappointments in this amazing trip have been not enough time to offer more private coaching sessions and a missed opportunity to meet up with MoonQuest mega-fan Lorri Greene during the San Diego leg of the trip. The biggest highlight, of course, will be seeing my daughter in L.A. on Thursday!

One city down, two to go. Just now leaving Las Vegas after what everyone tells me was a super-successful appearance on yesterday's Virtual Light Broadcast with Barbara and +Steve Rother, Sandra Sedgbeer and Janelle Collard. (If you missed the live show -- I was talking about writing and birthing your books -- watch this space for the replay link.)

Next stops: San Diego and then Los Angeles, to do some in-person coaching, for some Q'ntana Trilogy Movies business and to see my daughter. Looking forward!!
