Write With Me Day #30 Write or Die!

  For the month of November 2017 I took on a personal challenge to post a facebook live event on my facebook page.  What a fun time! It was terrifying, hilarious, filled with so many surprises. The overall theme was how to break through resistance when it comes to writing. I use the book War of Art to guide myself and my audience through the process of what it takes to sit down and write everyday. This was in celebration of National Novel Writing Month, but my theme was to encourage people to write their true stories and to break down blocks and barriers to writing. Highlights included:...

For writers this means start writing, or write more (or insert your favorite creative project.) If you’re slacking on your writing now is the time to re-up. What I mean by mindset is that regardless of the situation you are in, or how your situation is presenting itself, you have the control to view this in a new light and to prevail. The main concern of most writers is this: “I don’t have time,” or “I don’t know how to make the time.”...

3 Ways to Get Out of A Rut and Write

Being stalled as a writer happens to the best of us, from best selling authors, to poets, to journaling, to first time bloggers. The day seems to always come when a writer sits down to write and suddenly nothing happens, nada, just panic and silence. For some people this kind of stuckness gets masked by active procrastination. For instance the previous sentence was written at 7am. It is now eleven-thirty. I have spent the past four hours sorting my laundry, looking up travel locations in Italy, and creating a new smoothie recipe, which then led to me to cleaning and organizing my fridge. Or...
