7 Signs You are In Resistance. Resistance is a Shapeshifter.

 Resistance is a Shapeshifter.Resistance is not something you can point at. It is not visible. Just like gravity, we see the results of it, but we cannot put it in a jar and show it to you. Try to point to resistance, where is it? It’s in the air. It’s on our smartphones, computers, and tablets. It’s everywhere we look even if we can’t see it. It’s a thought that makes you put down the pen or walk away from the keyboard. The biggest trick of resistance is that it creates doubt.Doubt is resistance’s favorite operating system. It takes a person from love, determination and inspiration to...

Are you Writing In the Right Direction?

Are you Writing In the Right Direction?

I decided to take the long route. I rented a cabin in Long Beach, Washington to get away for five days from Portland, Oregon so I could write. The cabin had no wifi or TV. It was perfect. I could have taken the fastest route, a 2 1/2 hour drive, but I was sick of driving on Highway 26, which has become too familiar, too crowded and boring. I trusted my GPS and said f*ck it I’m going to drive an extra 25 minutes in order to see new places and experience new terrain and enjoy the 2 hour and 45 minute drive.  Until…  Two hours and ten minutes later I looked ahead and saw what seemed like the...

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:...

Why Being A Writer Matters Now More Than Ever

In a world of 7 billion people and counting, with hundreds of millions of books, blogs, web pages, essays, articles and poems you might wonder if you even matter in a world saturated with so many options. The conclusion is that even with more and more people writing the answer is still yes. You matter because you are here. When we consider that we will never know the answer to the mystery of our human existence the best we can do it is to celebrate, help each other, and make a difference. We make a difference by serving as an example to others and to live into the privilege of what it means...

Use Your Muscle Memory to Push Your Motivation.

Use Your Muscle Memory to Push Your Motivation.

  Everything is a mindset, which means you have the ability to shift your mindset and start living into the life you want at any given second, no joke. 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.”...
