Hi all,

Hope you had a restful Christmas? Also, a chance to reflect on the year that is passing? What you’ve achieved or discovered about yourself that you will take with you into the months ahead?

Now, while we each get the same amount of time each week to work, relax, spend time with loved ones, write, produce,  (etc), the demands of life will be different for each of us – and that’s to be expected! 

However, what’s not okay – and perhaps most frustrating – is when the time we have set aside to write is lost to writer’s block, lack of discipline, distractions, family needs etc – in short, anything that leaves the page/screen blank before us. (Or even more frustrating, only one edited paragraph for our efforts!)

Now, please hear what I say next as I am not offering a ‘cure all ‘ to writer’s block – if I could do that it would be worth millions! That said, I did happen across this handy resource by Henneke in Enchanting Marketing a few weeks ago which has helped me. Initially, I hoped one idea might emerge that I hadn’t considered BUT was surprised to find three/four ways of doing things differently:  two of which I have incorporated into my own writing routine and are working for me at present.

All the best for the New Year!

Write lots! 🙂
