Struggling with your writing? It’s time to simplify your writing process, so you can write to sell.
As you know, if you’ve been reading my blogs, and my writing journal, I’m all about process. Heaven knows, writing is challenging enough. We need all the help we can get with processes which are easy to use, yet have a powerful effect.
Authentic Writing teaches an old writing technique, clustering, and relates it to the writing you need to do every day.
Not only will you develop authentic goals, you’ll also find the specialties which are perfect for you.
If you’ve struggled with goal setting, it’s usually because you value short-term pleasure over commitment to something that’s way off in the future. What if you changed that? What if the journey to your goals could be as much (and more) fun than the arrival?
Specialist writers tend to earn more; depending on their specialties, of course. 🙂 Here’s the benefit of an authentic specialty: you’ll sell more. And because it’s authentically you, you’ll find the writing flows smoothly.
When you struggle…
I work with writers who are struggling with their writing every day. They want a quick fix. Here’s the thing. You don’t need to do anything. You merely need to stay right where you are — at your desk. In Authentic Writing, we look at how you can stay present for your writing, rather than running away. We discuss the various forms that “running away” takes, and how to deal with each one.
Develop your writer’s intuition
Your inspiration and creativity depend on your willingness to recognize, and to trust, your writer’s intuition. Your writing becomes easier when you trust your writer’s intuition. However, it’s not easy. I often talk about avoiding blogging, even though my intuition kept nudging me. This was way back in 1999, and other writers though I was crazy to write “for free.”
Thankfully, a real intuitive impulse won’t leave you alone. It will haunt you, until you pay attention.
They’re the big blasts of intuition, the ones you can’t ignore. We cheerfully ignore our daily writer’s intuition, which could make our writing so much easier.
In Authentic Writing, you’ll discover how to listen to yourself.
