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 20:32:284401719CC G+

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 15:13:0750121411CC G+
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 20:46:3870000CC G+
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 18:24:39330211318CC G+
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 18:49:234401197169CC G+

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 22:19:06499983CC G+
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 00:26:5250111715CC G+
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. Lots of time has been spent organizing this since it was first published - many new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of interesting business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset. I do want to add the disclamer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and these are just the ones I have curated. This still probably doesn't even include everyone in my own circles who are entrepreneurs or self employed so let me know if you want to be included. I republish this about once per month. This is a really diverse group of people that includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures, some have startups that are just getting going and some are wildly successful. 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 20:32:12500663852CC G+

Remembering  Addison DeWitt aka Jack Favell aka #GeorgeSanders  born this day in 1906. Sanders played the acid, manipulative DeWitt in All About Eve and the equally viperish Favell in Rebecca. He was also married to Zsa Zsa Gabor for five years and to Gabor's elder sister, Magda, for 32 days some years later. Sanders died in 1972, his death considered suicide.

In this photo, he's pictured with  Anne Baxter, Bette Davis and Marilyn Monroe in All About Eve

From the WOW! Department: Search Amazon for Kindle books on "screenwriting" and you'll come up with 1,067 results. So it's immensely gratifying that my screenwriting book – Organic Screenwriting, Writing for Film, Naturally – now ranks 56th in the Kindle store's screenwriting category! Woo-hoo!! www.amazon.com/author/markdavidgerson

P.S. Look in the lower right-hand corner of the screenshot, and answer me this: Why would anyone buy a used copy of the paperback for $36.40 when they can get a new one for $14.06 (the regular price is $16). Some of these Amazon listings just boggle my mind!!

It is so gratifying when a #writer  I have been editing and coaching makes huge leaps from one draft of a manuscript to the next. That has just happened again...and it is both awesome to read on the page and to experience in our meeting, as I did on Friday. To the author-client: You will probably see this and you know who you are: BRAVO!!

If you attended my presentation at Albuquerque's Guerrilla #Screenwriting  Circuit event a few years back (or my earlier presentations at the Screenwriting Conference in Santa Fe), I've turned all the wacky but effective things I talked about – and more –  into a book: "Organic Screenwriting: Writing for Film, Naturally." Check out the book trailer here; look for the paperback on Amazon (U.S./Europe) and at other online booksellers and the ebook in Kindle, Google Play, iBook, Kobo and Nook stores worldwide.

Taking a break between drafts of my upcoming book (Dialogues with the Divine: Meeting My Wisest Self on the Road to Enlightenment) to edit another author's manuscript. This is my third(?) go-round with her novel, and I can't begin to describe the galaxies of improvement she has put into it since our first meeting...and I'm talking about way more than the first sentence! It's not my place to name names, but I'm sure she will see this, so BRAVO!!

Wow! If I thought that writing Acts of Surrender: A Writer's #Memoir   pushed buttons as I re-experienced the emotions of a lifetime, Dialogues with the Divine feels to be even more intense, perhaps because it's so concentrated, focusing on only five months of my life. As I work with this 17-year-old manuscript, it feels as though I'm back in the fall/winter of 1996-97, living again the intensity, transformation and inner turmoil of that time. It was a powerful journey then; in its own way, it's just as powerful now! And, so, back to work.....

A new #selfie to celebrate the release of my newest book…which is really a new, expanded version of one of my first published books – The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write. Whether you are already #writing, don’t believe you can write or fall somewhere in the middle, this (award-winning!) book will deepen your creative experience and awaken you to new skills, new stories and a renewed confidence in your innate gifts. You’ll never feel the same about writing again! (32 five-star reviews on Amazon can’t be wrong!!) You’ll find The Voice of the Muse on many Amazon sites, as well as in most major ebook-stores. #writers

This new, expanded edition of The Voice of the Muse was so excited to get out into the world and into the hands of  #writers  that it made me click the wrong link last week when I finished going over its digital proofs. Instead of ordering a physical proof, which I always do before okaying a book for sale, I clicked the link that approved it for sale, sight-of-the-physical-book-unseen. Fortunately, as I discovered just now when I opened my first box of new books, it's perfect – which is a good thing, as the new VOM has already been selling!!

Independence Day Weekend: A symbolically powerful time to be working on this new/old book, given how liberating writing always is for me. If you read my Acts of Surrender memoir, you will know about this book – an unpublished manuscript from long ago titled Dialogues with the Divine that, suddenly a few weeks back, demanded to be revisited, edited and released, finally, into the world. So that's what I have been up to these past days...and why I have been so quiet around here! Also, I now have a possible subtitle for the book: "Meeting My Wisest Self on the Road to Enlightenment." We'll see if it sticks....

An innocent(?) question asked a few weeks ago by a reader of Acts of Surrender: A Writer's Memoir (a question no doubt planted by my Muse, whose intentions are never innocent!) has led me to resurrect an unpublished, journal-like manuscript that I mention in the memoir but had long ago abandoned all plans to release. I have now read the most recent (14-year-old) version of the manuscript and realize that a) I have to publish it (an imperative about which I'm ambivalent, even as I know it must be done) and b) It's going to take more work than I had anticipated to harmonize several different drafts in a way that presents the material to its best advantage. 

Even as I have some hesitation in putting this book out there, I'm encouraged by what a Unity Minister wrote about it it back in (gulp) 1997: “An honest dialogue between the human and the divine is a healing experience — amuch... more »

I wish I could take credit for this book trailer. However, unlike the ones I put together for Organic Screenwriting and From Memory to Memoir, a professional did this trailer for The MoonQuest. I think it's pretty cool; I would love to create something as slick for The StarQuest and The SunQuest. Perhaps one of these days. But for now, this 52-second gem is a great ambassador for The Q'ntana Trilogy Books!

I found a unique way to celebrate #CanadaDay  today. (You can take the boy out of Canada, but you can't take Canada out of the boy!) How? Today was the day I launched the new, expanded edition of my very first book for #writers  – The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write! Although none of the book was written in Canada, it was in Toronto that I experienced the creative and #spiritualawakening  that started me teaching and that would inexorably lead to The Voice of the Muse (not to mention my Q'ntana fantasy novels and my other books for writers) ! So it's fair to say that the book's foundations lie in the country of my birth! So what a great way to spend Canada's national holiday!!

Today, I launched a new, expanded-by-20% edition of my first book for writers, The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write. I share my feelings about revisiting and updating the book on my blog today. Here's an excerpt... 

"It's been quite the journey, re-experiencing a book I had not read cover-to-cover since proofing the final first-edition galleys nearly seven years ago. In revisiting The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call for the new, expanded edition released today, I was reminded that its first words were originally intended not for you, but for me. 

"Also, the more I read, the more I realized that The Voice of the Muse is not only not out-of-date, it has grown with the times. Somehow, it has not only remained relevant over the years but has grown even more relevant. In a world where public schools are being stripped of their arts programs andc... more »
