Writing with Consistency and Courage

Wednesday, February 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm Eastern

Focus on developing qualities that count for more than talent or craft when it comes to finishing and polishing drafts.


Additional Information

This webinar will offer practical tools for building consistency and courage, two qualities essential to writing success. You will be guided to examine what courage and consistency mean for your own writing, as well as how to set achievable goals for making incremental progress and identify ways of meeting those goals. You’ll learn several techniques for getting to and staying at the page, overcoming resistance, and tapping into and trusting your creative intuition. You’ll discover ways of finding a fresh perspective on your material. Finally, you’ll compose new work in response to prompts, generating momentum that can carry you into your next writing session. Writers’ reasons for feeling blocked vary, but often relate to perfectionism, fear of failure, self-doubt, overwhelm, distraction, and overthinking. We won’t share what we write, but we’ll gather in a spirit of curiosity and generosity to support our own and each other’s writing.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Explore what courage and consistency mean for your writing and devise strategies to strengthen these qualities in your work.
  • Learn and experiment with techniques for overcoming resistance to writing.
  • Practice bravery and trust your creative intuition as you generate new writing in response to prompts.

There will be time for a Q & A at the end of the presentation.

Writing with Consistency and Courage is ideal for writers at any level who are looking to begin a new project, resume an old one, overcome obstacles in a work-in-progress, or surprise themselves with a forward leap.
