The Writing Habit is a Scenius

Coined by musician and producer Brian Eno, the term "scenius" is similar to "genius" except that it is embedded into a scene of many people rather than the genes of a single person. 

A scenius is defined by...

Mutual Appreciation

Creative pursuits and risk taking is supported and celebrated by the collective

Rapid Exchange of Ideas

Discoveries are showcased, tools and techniques are shared

Success is Contagious

When one person achieves something, everyone celebrates it as a success of the scene

Tolerance for the New

Non-conformity and experimentation is encouraged and protected from the "outside" world


The most powerful mechanism of creative action 
is not discipline. It's connection

We are bombarded by messaging that tells us to "just do it," to "try harder," that if we fail it's because we "don't have enough grit" and are "lazy." 


This is bullsh*t. 

Would you say an apple seed was lazy or didn't have grit if you put it in a plastic bag without soil and it didn't grow?


Just like a seed, we need the proper conditions to sprout our innate creative intelligence. This begins with connection.


A Scenius is built upon this recognition.

The Writing Habit is all about providing a mycelial, interconnected context that supports the natural intelligence of your body,  heart, and mind to creatively blossom.

For years I thought I was deficient...

Seduced by the cultural championing of the "lone wolf," I thought I ought to be able to do the damn thing on my own, without help or aid. So ensued years of banging my head against the wall wondering why I wasn't making progress on my grand creative visions, and lots of time spent feeling creatively stuck. 

It took a long time to shift my view and entertain the possibility that maybe, just maybe, there was another way.

Eventually, I had an insight: it's all about connection. When human beings feel genuinely connected to themselves, to each other, and to the earth, there is a natural release of creative energy. 

That's why I created The Writing Habit. while it includes carefully curated strategic content to support efficiency and practical progress, at the core it's really about connection - coming together to create, to share, and express our true nature and become, evermore, human.

About Me

Hi! I'm Albert.

I'm a practicing freelance artist and writer. I've released seven children's books with two different publishing houses, both as a writer and illustrator, actively write on Substack, and have been designing websites for Shambhala Publications for five years. I'm passionate about discovering and expressing my true nature and helping others do the same. 

I've had an (almost) daily writing practice for over a decade and have found it an indispensable ally to my creative work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Image by Paul Berthelon Bravo

I'm not really a "writer"...can I still join?

YES! This is a place for "writers" to become WRITERS, if you catch my drift. By writing daily, you are casting a vote for who you want to become, and by the end, you may realize that you are a writer after all!

When are the live sessions?

Connection Calls

Thursdays from 4:30-5:30 pm PST, starting June 27th

Co-Writing Sessions:

Tuesday evenings from 4:00-5:00 pm

I can't make it to all the live calls. Is that okay?

You're encouraged to make it to as many of the Creative Connection calls as possible, but it is totally okay to miss them if you need to. They will be recorded and shared within 24 hours of the call.

The co-writing sessions are optional but encouraged!

What will happen during the lives calls?

The Creative Connection Calls are all about connection. We'll do a lot of writing, we'll share writing in real time, and we'll have opportunities to check in with each other about our respective creative processes.

The Co-Writing Calls are a space to write independently with the mutual support and inspiration of each other. They will include a brief intention setting at the beginning, optional prompts, and a brief check out at the end. 

What the heck is Slack?

Slack is a cloud-based instant messaging system that is great for connecting and sharing work in a private container. Don't worry -- there will be a short tutorial on how to use it during the first live call!

How much time will I have to spend on this each week?

Our goal together will be to set aside at least 20 minutes per day for writing, plus a 90-minute call each week. But it's really up to you how much you do!
