Do you long to write but can't seem to get your pen moving?
You are not alone!
You really wish you could write more.
But you’re so busy adulting you already can’t find enough hours in the day! What with family, friends, work, and all that, you just don't get around to writing anymore.
And even if you do get a chance to write, you can’t think of a single thing to say.
Some people call this "writer's block."
What if it's not "writer's block"?
(What if there's no such thing?)
What if, when you're staring at the blank page with no idea where to start, it's not that you're "blocked" and it's not that something's wrong with you.
What if you're just out of practice?
Or maybe, whenever your pen does start moving, this pesky editor moves into your mind with a running commentary of increasingly snarky "helpful advice":
You can’t say that!
That should be a semicolon, not a comma! Don't you know anything?
You're a stinky writer anyway. You should just give up and go do something useful.
That would make anybody want to give up and do something else!
And you wonder why you don't write more often!
What if you didn't have to worry about any of that?
What if you could write with ease, grace and joy?
Without censoring yourself before you ever get to the page?
Without giving a single thought to grammar, punctuation or spelling?
Without thinking about whether it's "any good" or worrying about whether you're a stinky writer?
Hi, I'm Dee.
For over 30 years, I’ve helped people learn about writing, in small group settings and individual coaching sessions.
I especially love helping people find their writing voice through the practice of contemplative writing.
What's that, you ask?
Contemplative writing is a unique and powerful writing practice that brings mindfulness and writing together on the page.
Find out what it's like to write for the sheer joy of seeing what emerges.
You could start now.
Yes, right now.
With three simple steps, like this:
Set a timer for five minutes.
Pick up your pen and keep it moving until the timer goes off.
