Make 2021 the year you launch and commit to your writing dream.
Don't let your fear and negative self-talk hold you back. This comprehensive course gives you the skills and mindset you need to keep writing. Elements include: How to stop self-sabotage. How to work with your Inner Critic. How to deal with rejection. How to create lots of ideas on demand.
This course cannot guarantee your writing success, but it absolutely guarantees your ability to pursue that success. To be a successful writer you need to a) write, b) finish what you write, and c) submit what you write. This sounds simple, but in fact each of these steps brings its own challenges. This course is designed to explain these challenges so you realise it's just the human condition and not a flaw in you. And further, practical tools and techniques will be shared to overcome each of those challenges: to make your internal editor your ally rather than your enemy. You will learn why you struggle to write at times, and will learn effective techniques to overcome these blocks. You'll learn why your internal editor wants to sabotage you, and how to get it on board so it's your ally rather than your enemy. And then we'll share techniques for enhancing creativity so that you are a fountain of ideas.
