Your response to last week’s article, Hey, Writer – Your Courage is Calling, was phenomenal!  Thank you for your messages, and I’m glad my ideas resonated for you.  Many of you wrote me to say that the article helped you believe in your voice, and be more courageous with writing.

Not long ago, I met a writer who desperately wanted cut through the clutter of her busy schedule and inner resistance so she could finally focus on writing. She had a book to finish.

What are you choosing to focus your energy and attention on today?

Despite these assets, this independent writer was missing two crucial elements that were keeping her stuck and unable to dig […]

Freelance

My client’s voice lit up brightly today as she recalled how fun pitching stories used to be when she was just starting out as a freelance writer. “I used to be so excited about finding ideas,” she said.  “I loved it.  I’d think, ‘Ooh,  I see an idea in the world — I can develop that and bring […]

It’s time for you to fall back in love with your freelance writing career, your craft and your life. Why? Because the years ebb by fast.  Before you know it, a decade’s gone by and suddenly you see that most  of your talent, your passion, your potential… is stymied.  Stuck.  As-yet unexpressed.  Unrealized. “Falling in love again” with […]

This week, a woman I’ll call Jenny told me what I hear so often from aspiring non-fiction authors:  her book project?  It’s stuck.  Jenny is so stuck that her book idea – that concept she was passionate about years ago, has remained on her hard drive, neglected and abandoned for years.
