What is your life’s core message? The story that, if you look back at your life,  you’ve been telling since you were a kid? What if, by founding out that message, you could re-invigorate your creativity and your work?

In this special edition of Character Test, I share a speech I gave at ATL Ideas where I talk about my core message, Awe, and how I discovered it. Special thanks to Plywood People, the host of the conference, for inviting me to speak and giving me permission to share the talk. 

We also examine Malorie Hayes and talk about the tension between creativity and the marketplace. 

And, as always, there’s a free prize, which you can get below.

Character Test is brought to you by The Write Practice Pro, a premium critiquing community for creative writers. You can check out their new demo video and join the community here.
