This is an important conversation...

What happens when you come to share your ideas and put your creativity into the world? Sometimes the words flow effortlessly. Other times, the inspiration dissolves and we're left with the pain and frustration of the blank page.

We all have inner magic that's ready to be expressed in the outside world.

The more we're able to move through writer's block and overcome a creative drought, the more we're able to make our voices heard.

Here's how...

"It takes courage to be authentic. It takes courage to be fully self-expressed. We need to learn how to overcome writer's block or we can't make our hearts visible."

In this episode, we explore: 

  • Why writer's block shows up. 
  • The risk of allowing the blank page to win. 
  • The link between procrastination and writer's block. 
  • Signs you're stuck in resistance. 
  •  Tips for shifting the energy and sparking momentum.  

“Here’s a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don’t, and the secret is this: It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write. What keeps us from sitting down is Resistance.”  - Steven Pressfield, The War of Art. 

  • How to use identities and labels to overcome a creative drought. 
  • The tip that's guaranteed to dissolve writer's block. 
  • Using the light of acknowledgment as a tool.
  • Practices for evoking the muse. 
  • And more...

If you take away nothing else from this episode, take away this one thing... Writer's block needn't hold you back. There are tools you can use to dissolve resistance and bring your creativity back to the forefront.
