9M: The Motivated Writer
Limited Capacity seats available

If you’re the rare writer who hasn’t ever wrestled with motivation, confidence, and time-management skills, then stop reading right now. But if you’ve had trouble sitting down at the desk, or staying there, or concentrating on your own words, or if you’ve been struck by a bad case of the impostor complex, then this session is for you. You’ll learn about motivation-boosting techniques every writer can borrow from that seemingly unlikely source: sports. No matter what your experience with exercise, you’ll learn how to use an athlete’s tools like interval training, periodization, and the concept of training zones to help you embark on and complete your writing project. No need to bring sweats and a water bottle to this session. But you’ll leave The Muse with a plan for how to accomplish your short-term and long-term goals.
