Write Now: Proven approaches for conquering procrastination, self-doubt, fear and perfectionism
Almost all writers fight a battle against the blank page. One of the main differences that separates successful writers from amateurs is knowing how to win this fight.
It’s not just about forcing yourself to write, but knowing how to write to the best of your abilities, free of the internal censor and other creative blocks.
Over the past ten years I’ve had the honor of working closely with many successful writers and seen the specific tools and strategies they use to overcome resistance and sit down every day to produce professional-level work. While a few of these techniques are found in books and seminars, most are not.
This seminar will teach proven approaches for conquering self-doubt, procrastination, fear, anxiety, self-sabotage and perfectionism. It is designed for writers who don’t want yet another pep talk, but actual tools and techniques to make writing easier, more productive and impactful to the reader.
Because writing doesn’t have to be such a struggle. You are actually allowed to enjoy it.
