9J: Writing Through Your Blocks
Limited Capacity seats available

In this session, we'll look at some of the ways writers find themselves blocked or intimidated by our own inner critics and by external forces. How do writers get through these challenging times, keep writing and trusting our own process and voice, even when the going gets rough? How do we keep going with our writing even in our busy lives? There will be time for discussion, an examination of some professional writers’ personal techniques, and time to try some specific strategies to quiet the mind and to work with and around resistance instead of only against it. Indeed, sometimes by approaching resistance in these new ways, writers are able to find new methods that help them produce their best work. Participants will leave with new perspectives on blocks and with specific techniques to take home.
